Have you heard of the Buy Nothing project? They are community based groups (usually on Facebook) where, instead of throwing away or trashing stuff you don’t need, you donate it, or give it away to your local community. My local Buy Nothing community is so much more than that, though. It’s a community of people who give to those in need, who lead a helping hand, who create an atmosphere and environment where random acts of kindness and good deeds are done every day. It’s pretty special, I have to say, to be both on the receiving and giving end of the Buy Nothing community. It was within this community that I met this special family, who welcomed their new baby boy into their lives, Baby R. They excited came over to capture his first few days, complete with adorable props and some family mementos. I enjoyed meeting mom, dad, and Baby R., and hope that they enjoy the lovely photos!
Meet Baby R. His mom brought over the cute little crowns as props, aren’t they precious?
Beautiful momma and beautiful baby.
This sock monkey was handmade by great-grandma. I love it when families bring special toys like this.
We got some awake shots of him as well, here he is on a blanket also made by great-grandma.
Another cute crown. And look at those lips! So squishy!
Being held by dad, one of my favorite poses.
Welcome to the world, Baby R.! You are blessed and loved.
