The Angel's Turned One (One Month That Is) - Los Angeles Newborn Photographer

Any parents of a newborn baby would know how fast time swoops by in between the feeding-peeing-pooping-cleaning and feeding-peeing-pooping-and-cleaning-again kind of cycle.  It was just 2 weeks ago when I photographed this little angel.  Before the world had much chance to meet His Cuteness (as opposed to His Highness), he's one (month young)!

Last night, I had a dream and Cooper was in it.  Here's what he told me in the dream:

"Me a happy baby.  I like to check things out and I like to smile, a lot."

"Tehe...Daddy doesn't know my secret.  I just peed again...Tehe..."

©Jean (Jiaying) Huang "Daddy looks sharp in this outfit.  I can't wait to grow up to be like him."

"But it sure is boring work.  It ain't easy for my daddy to bring home bread everyday...  Ahhh...get me out of this!"

"Nothing beats a good sleep after all that work.  Dream, sweet dream..."

©Jean (Jiaying) Huang "They say I'm one month old.  Woo hoo... I'm a big baby now.  I want you all to know that I am dealing with some 'growing pain'.  But don't worry, as I will soon learn, 'no pain, no gain'.  I will be OK 'cause I'm Cooper the Trooper."

"You ask where's my mommy?  I hid her from you 'cause she's myyyy mommy.  Shhhh, don't wake her up.  Ever since I came around, she hasn't  slept 30 hours in a day."

Jesus, Carol, your baby reads your Facebook posts? 

An Angel's Landed in this World - Los Angeles Newborn Photographer

Newborn babies enter this world in their own styles.  Contrary to a polite hello that's expected from an adult, we welcome a big loud cry.

While sleep deprived, new parents take time to have newborn photography taken to signify the beginning of a new life.  I had such a pleasure to meet little Mr. Cooper.

What an angel he is.  Lots of great images came out of our session and this one would be a nice introduction for him - a cry(ing) baby, with style.  I assure you though that's not all he did the whole session.  I will be sharing some of the stunts that he pulled up in a later post.  For now, say hello (or cry to, if you'd like) little Mr. Cooper!

Welcome to this world, Valen - Los Angeles Newborn Photorapher

God knows how behind I am in posting my photo sessions.  However, Valen's mommy could not wait for me to finish processing all the images.  So I am putting out some sneak peeks of the session while I finish with the rest.

Valen, a cute little guy entered this world, a little early.  He was supposed to be the little valentine for his parents, on the oh-so famous "love day" (hence the name).  Well, I can see why - he couldn't hold off all the excitement that he will bring.  Me, for sure, was one excited photographer and could not help but falling in love with this small bundle.

Now you see, at a tenderly young age of two and a half weeks, Valen shows you the many facets that a (newborn) baby could have:

The...ummm...according to mommy and daddy, this is the look when he is into something.  Diaper!  Quick! Valen loves mommy:

What can I say, this future heart-breaker is such a joyful bundle...

Nice to meet you, Valen!  Welcome to this world!

P.S. You'd notice that I was playing with different tonal effects.  And no matter what I chose, Valen continues to be such a good-looking little guy. :-)
