It was great to reunite with Aleigh and Joe! Geoff and I photographed their engagement session in New York City several years ago. Now they’re married and parents to an adorable baby named Isaac and have a beautiful home with the best longest hallway. Why do I like long hallways? I don’t know. I think they remind me of shotgun houses in New Orleans. I think I also like to run and slide down them in socks a la Tom Cruise in Risky Business. Anyway, their home and baby are beautiful. Isaac is also the proud baby owner of several incredible blankets. If I’ve photographed your baby, you know I really love looking through baby blankets and finding fun patterns and colors. Isaac had so many good ones made by people who love him, which is the most important part. I’m so happy for Aleigh and Joe and am thrilled that the city has gained another resident who’s a future Bruce Springsteen fan.
Newborn babies are probably most fun when they are wrapped in taco blankets and accompanied by a dog named Taco, don’t you think? Baby Avital was welcomed into the world by loving parents Haley and Asher and by extremely-inquisitive-and-affectionate-so-doesn’t-quite-understand-personal-space-when-it-comes-to-babies older brother Taco. Taco is quite adorable and fluffy and fearless. He enjoys sweaters and pets. Avital is quite adorable and little and fearless. She enjoys koalas and owning a variety of fabulous blankets. Her parents tell me that she’s a future National Park Ranger, but there’s still some debate on which specific National Park she’ll choose. For now, her possible choices of future outdoorsy employment are on display via, you guessed it, her variety of fabulous blankets (camp sites and cacti) as well as her adorable stuffed koala. Haley and Asher are great parents, NYC transplants, and have incredibly interesting jobs. Also, there’s no quicker way to get to know someone than to move heavy furniture with them, which we did flawlessly, so I give them an A+ humanity rating. Plus how can you not like people who wrap their baby in a taco blanket?
