Welcome to this World: Baby Luke! {Green Bay Baby and Infant Photography}

GREEN BAY, Wis. There are few things that make me feel more like a grown up than when my friends become moms and dads. It kind of makes you see everything in a new, amazing light. With that said, I was eagerly awaiting the arrival of Angie and Mike’s first child last month. And Baby Luke did not disappoint, arriving into the world weighing a remarkable 11 pounds 5 ounces!

Of course I did what any respectable friend would do, grabbed the camera and headed for the hospital. Okay, if we’re being honest, my friend Barb and I were already en route before we got the, “It’s okay to come to the hospital,” phone call. We were excited!

And there she was, sitting alone in the room with her new son. At that moment, our friend Angie became a MOM! Huge!

And being the woman that she is, Angie was tolerant enough to actually let us hold the little man. I’ve held a few babies in my day, and I can say with certainty holding Luke was like toting a 3 month old! Angie will have biceps of steel by the end of the month!

Well, that’s only if Dad lets her hold Luke! He seems pretty attached.

Here they are in their first official family photo! Luke thought it appropriate to sleep through the experience. But it’s okay, because exactly one week later I was on his doorstep for his first at home photo shoot!

Despite this one image, I believe he was, in fact, happy to see me. The truth is, I love capturing crying babies. Such a little man, using every fiber in his body to make himself heard. You’ve got to love that!

I also love how once there’s a baby in the house there is suddenly no need for television. We’ll all just sit and watch the newborn. Way more entertaining that reality tv.

Can I say again how stinking cool it is to see my friend as a mom?

Clearly, Luke thinks Angie is pretty cool too. He was totally content to just chill in her arms. And occasionally he’d acknowledge my presence for a moment and give me some super cute look. We are clearly BFF in the making.

Believe it or not, there are more pictures to share. I think I’ve lost track of the number of times I cried while editing these photos and putting together the slide show. It could have something to do with the amazing music of Renee and Jeremy. If you’re a parent, or know someone who is a parent, or you just like soothing music, go to their website. It’s possible I have listed to their CD on repeat for the past month, just waiting to use the music in a slideshow. It’s grown up friendly lullabyes and kids songs.

So without further ado, Welcome to This World, Baby Luke. Here’s your slideshow.

And here’s your gallery.

I look forward to many, many photo sessions in our future.
