It was a cold September morning when I was asked by my cousin and his wife to photograph their first son… He was only 20 days old, so we had to wait for the sleepy moments and between the nursing periods, to take the pictures… I like those love proportions, affections, and care that a simple photo is capable of capturing. A little feet and a careful hand are more worth than a thousand words.
