I am so excited to be able to share this session. This little guy is Donovan Knox. His mama is a good friend and fellow photographer, Ashley Daniell. Knox’s due date is the first of December. He was born at the end of September, at just 31 weeks and just over 3 pounds. As his daddy said, Knox was going to be in the NICU for an estimated 6-8 weeks “due to the lovestruck request of the hospital nursing staff.” Well, baby Knox is a fighter, and he was able to go home after just a month in the NICU. I photographed him for his newborn session on the day he turned 5 weeks, and he wasn’t even supposed to be due for another month. He is so perfect and so tiny (although he’s close to doubling his birth weight now!) Anyway, I was so excited to finally meet him, and he was a champ for his session!
It’s fitting to share this session on the day before Thanksgiving, because I know his mama and daddy are so thankful to have him home and safe!
He’s totally handsome, right?
And these next two are two of my favorite newborn images ever. They are just perfect for the holiday season!
I have more photos of Knox posted on my Facebook page.
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
