This baby slept the whole way to the shoot (1.5 hours), her parents said she was an angel! I was thrilled... she'd sleep a bit for some yummy shots of that... then she'd wake all rested, for some sweet family shots.

She woke as soon as she arrived and started screaming.

She didn't quit almost the entire time they were there. Mom was so disappointed. Daddy hung in there, although he'd only had four hours of sleep the night before.

This shot was literally between screams. LOL!

But, still... I enjoyed it all.

Brought back memories...

Such a sweet family.

Oh Lydia! This is amazing! It takes a LOOOOOT of patience to get those great baby pictures -- the ones that make it look so easy, right? I'm glad she stopped screaming long enough for you to NAIL this! :)

"Hello little, princess," greeted her father as he picked her up. He had been away from home on a long tour of duty. This was his first introduction to his baby daughter upon his return. She looked at her father and welcomed him home with a smile.

The title and photo speaks the above story to me. To me, this captures a very beautiful interaction between father and daughter. To me, they are greeting one another in a playful exchange. Great capture of emotion on both of their faces.
