My wife and I recently welcomed our first child to our little family. His name is Lochlan and he has brought a level of joy and fulfillment to our lives which we (two very happy people) didn't know existed. For Mother's day, we decided to give our moms a print of Lochlan. This was my first experience photographing a newborn and I found his lack of response to my direction to be quite a challenge! Normally I am not in favor of the "spray and pray" technique, however, it turned out to be very useful during this shoot.

This was a reminder for me to take on new challenges and to not shy away from a learning opportunity. Besides, this kid is friggin' cute, right?
