Faafeai Roman :: 5 Days Old

One of the things that I love most about my job is meeting new families and learning about them, their culture and their beliefs. This weekend I got to photograph my very first Samoan newborn and I loved talking to his mommy and daddy and learning more about them. I instantly fell in love with their rich culture. I loved the traditions they told me about and their family is stunning! In this session we only focused on baby Faafeai, but I got to meet their whole family and I can't wait to do their holiday session in a few weeks :-)

Baby Faafeai is SO cute but he was a hard model to work with :-) Once we figured out that he did not like to lie on his belly and that he adores a specific blanket we were on a roll! Faafeai weighed in at 11lbs, 2oz and he's such a perfect little chunker with the most perfect little hair and adorable baby expressions. He will be having his big welcoming party in a few days and the theme will be minions, so we made sure to get a minion-themed setup, and I love it! Now just to blow these pictures up into posters for his big day :-)

Randy and Rachel - it was SO nice to meet you. You are such wonderful people and I loved spending some time with you. You are so beyond blessed with such beautiful children, and I can't wait to see you guys again in a few weeks :-) And a big thank you to aunty Veronica! :-) - Brenda
