Families are the topic of the month… from documenting tradition, to new blessings, to precious and passing moments. In April, I made a special trip this year to visit my best friend in Oklahoma and meet her son for the first time, sans womb. Unfortunately, circumstances had kept us from visiting since she sat for a few quick maternity photos shortly before Maceo was born. Being his first birthday, I wasn’t about to let any more time pass. Shianna cautioned me that Maceo doesn’t take well to strangers right away, but the second he saw me he reacted like he knew me already. I have always thought babies could smell fear on you, like bees. I think children have an innate sixth sense now too; they can tell when you are someone special to their mother. Maceo also took right to the camera. I thought I would share some photos from our visit.
