Baby Merritt, Newborn Session

Little Merritt’s mom and dad had a big year last year— from extensive home renovations and out-of-state work trips, to preparing for their sweet baby boy to be born. Merritt made his arrival just in time for Christmas. I think he heard there were pretty lights to see and festive songs to hear and he wanted to experience all of it. :) And though I am sure he had plenty of gifts under the tree, of course his parents’ favorite was him!
When his belly was fully and after lots of back pats, Merritt drifted off to sleep and we were able to get some sweet, sweet pictures of him all cozy and dreamy. You can tell his parents just adore him, and I think he feels the same about them, too. :) I’m so excited to see him again soon and see how much he has grown since this session! I am anxious to see if his hair is going to be red like his dad’s, or if it has turned out more like his momma’s. (No spoilers, if you know this family! haha)

Welcome to the world, baby Merritt!
