This is a part 2 of Michelle and Malcolm Pregnancy session. It features their 1 month old baby, Anthony Cuellar.
Let me just clarify... I really said 1 month old baby. Usually, for newborn photography, it is recommended the baby is no older than 12 days (the earlier the better, actually) if you want to capture these beautiful sleepy baby poses. BUT, that was not the case for baby Anthony. For medical reasons we had to wait to do his session but at 44 days old he slept like a 1 week old! And for that reason we could get such beautiful images from him :)
And why did we take so long to do our newborn session? Anthony, had a little complication and he was in high risk to be passing by a kidney surgery, right after he was born. I being a mom can't even imagine how difficult it was for Michelle and Malcolm to learn that and have to leave the hospital without their newborn baby. Even though words are not enough to explain, I have asked I have asked Michelle to describe how the felt about it and we hope some day, Anthony is going to read it in a few years:
"My husband and I cannot imagine ourselves without this baby in our lives ... sometimes we wonder how we lived so long without him!! There is no greater joy!
We will never forget how difficult was when I was still in the fifth month of my pregnancy and we learned that he would need a kidney surgery, and even worse, it would have to be the same day that he was born! No father or mother should experience going home without having their baby in their arms... but, thank God, after Anthony spent a week at the children's hospital we finally could bring him home and give him all the love and attention in the world!"
I am so happy everything was fine in the end! Much joy and happiness for this family who I personally have a special connection with :)
You may want to remember their Engagement Session, with the Life is a Sweet Cupcake theme, where we had a summer afternoon shot, by the golden hour and filled with sweet kisses (This session was featured by Heart of Frederick). And after that, comes their Wedding Day in VA.

Then, baby Anthony is born to bring joy and even more love into this family (like this is even possible)
Anthony's little feet curled up by this very beautiful handmade blanket. The yellow and green colors come from the Brazilian flag colors.. That is why...
Michelle is wearing her official soccer shirt, and Anthony is her favorite player, I would day :)
He would make a very nice soccer player, what would you say? :)
Xmas is not that far away to get a few shots for his very 1st family Christmas. How lovely!!
And mom and dad also wanted to honor the USA flag, as a joint of both cultures where he will be raised. (Not forgetting to mention Bolivia, where Anthony's dad, Malcolm's background is from). Anthony will speak 3 idioms: english, portuguese and spanish! WOW, just wow :)
And our outdoor location, outside of the studio to capture our last shots from our series!
And a little surprise!!
I don't even know how to describe the joy of this image. This beautiful statue was created by Gisele Pereira who is Michelle's sister, she is a very talented artist. Gisele got inspired by that very same image to create this art and gift the couple. How beautiful is this? It is like having your picture turned into a 3d image. I am in so in love with her work!!
