Ritz Rivera Childhood Photography

my little model

I see this little guy everyday, okay not really, but since he is on the cover of my coffee table portfolio book, which is nicely displayed in my family livingroom, I get a glimpse of him every single day. So what did I expect to see when I was greeted at the door when I arrived for our 2nd session? An itty bitty baby, yeah right!!!

Here he is as a 10-day old newborn, as you can see on my book cover below, sorry I don’t have an actual picture of the book, it is on the “to do” list, but I know most of you will recognize it.

And here he is now. Can you say  “G o r g e o u s “

I can’t wait to piece together this little guys own Storybook when we are done with all of his sessions, it sounds like mom and dad want the same cover image, Yippee!!

    Such a cutie! Love the hood one and the first one. You can see the little baby in him just a bit – how fast they grow and how smart of Mom & Dad to have you capture him before all of his babyness is gone.
