This darling sweet boy entered the world on August 29, 2014, and completely blessed his mommy and daddy (Ayesha and Daood), and his big brother Aydin. I'll never forget this newborn session! Walking into this family's beautiful home, I was immediately taken in by their warmth and kindness. Their home is filled with colors and soft textures of the same warmth...rich earth tones, coppers, and golds. I felt enveloped in their welcoming smiles amidst the usual chaos of everyone bustling about getting ready for Zayd's newborn session. Ayesha's mother and sister were there to help integrate the baby into the family and give extra support to Ayesha and Aydin. Zayd, already a few weeks old on this day, was very keen to stay awake the whole time, so he could take it all in! And Aydin, when I got him one-on-one in front of my camera, just sparkled for me! A very sweet time to capture.
While this family awaits the completion of their new album documenting Zayd's earliest days, I've created a very sweet video birth announcement for them to share with loved ones.
Thank you, Daood and Ayesha! I'm so honored to start putting together such special heirlooms for your family! Ayesha, you look so beautiful and content in these images, and Daood, I've never seen such tender moments between a father and his sons...
