Baby Akira, Atlanta Newborn Documentary Photographer

First bath

Mother and father look down at son in nursery

I met this family a couple months before Akira was born through mutual friends. We hit it off with matching 3 year old girls and an affinity for home births. They are a beautiful family with such serious chemistry that I couldn't help but see if they would let me take pictures of them after Akira was born. We met on a sunny day to document Akira's first bath with his sweet big sister Anaïs by his side to help. It's hard to believe that was 6 months ago. Happy half year, Akira! Here's to another half year of amazing growth! Check out Tanya's blog to read more about these amazing kids here and here
