  1. Oh. My.
    What a beautiful baby.
    Reminds me of when my son was a newborn and a lady at the doctor’s office was oohing & ahhing over him (he was quite the Gerber baby, like your guy). I was sleep-deprived and looked like hell and the woman looked at me, looked at my baby and said, “His father must be really good-looking!” Egads!

    • He is really an incredibly beautiful baby – both his parents are stunning. And at only 3 weeks, he was moving his head around and smiling and ‘talking’ – happy and content… a real darling…

      As for the lady in the doctor’s office… makes you hope karma’s paying close attention. Sheesh!


  2. What a clever shot, Titi…capturing the reflection in the eyes. Wow.

    • Thanks – I did a bit of reading up on photographing babies before I set out to capture him… I must say I was very pleased with this shot… Glad you liked it too…


  3. Great shot. You’ve captured the complete essence of this little guy.

    Makes me melancholy in a way that I know that you didn’t intend. It’s just that I think that if only more of us could see the world through these eyes again–everything is captivating and interesting, everything is inviting, everything is worth a second glance.

    Sorry, didn’t mean to be maudlin.

    • Ah Lita – you saw it the way I saw it… he really made me go all soft and emotional when I was working on this. And of course, whenever I see him… I am a sucker for wee babies… all potential, all possibility, I can pour my dreams into them – they don’t mind at all…
