The last time I traveled to Indiana was June 2012 to welcome the newest member of our family. My sister gave birth to her second child, a son named Evan, and he was beautiful – dark hair, chubby cheeks – a real butterball of a baby. I was able to photograph him within his first week of life, capturing that sweet newborn essence we long to hold onto. His smell was amazing and his hair soft as down. I could have snuggled with him for hours.
Fast forward nine months. While the newborn details we “ooohhh’d” and “awww’d” over are barely traceable (tear), he has grown into such a precious little guy with a deep-throated laugh and a smile that would charm the stars.
