I Heart Faces Challenge

This is my first I Heart Faces entry ever! I have followed their page for a while but have never entered a photo of my own. So this week I saw that the theme was wind and it brought me back to a super windy engagement session I had not too long ago with this beautiful couple. I remembered this picture where he was kissing her and the wind was blowing her hair and I just loved the moment captured. So I decided to take the plunge and enter it!

My dear friend Kate delivered this beautiful baby boy last week. I was able to visit them in the hostpital and see him when he was just hours old. He is such a precious little guy! Today we got to do his newborn photos. He has been in the hospital the past few days for severe jaundice and thankfully he was just able to go home! I enjoyed taking his photos and hope to take more soon in the future:)
