I had the great joy of photographing this beautiful family for their maternity photos in January, and then again once their sweet son was born.

Alex & Rob are a couple you meet and think; "You were totally made to be parents."

At one point, Alex was in the other room nursing Seamus and I asked Rob, "what is something that's surprised you about being a dad?"

His face broke into the biggest, most heart-melting smile and he replied, "I just love him SO much!"

When I grow up, I want to be like Alex. She is so sure of herself. There's a steadiness to her, even in the nerve-wracking early days of motherhood, that I wish I had, even a year into my journey as a mother.

Seamus is truly blessed to be born into so much love.
