It was a number of months ago that my friend Gabe contacted me with some news. He wanted to announce that he was going to be a father via Facebook with a photo which he wanted me to take, so I got to hear the news before a lot of people. I actually met Gabe at Ground Zero Climbing Gym in Dartmouth about a year and a half before that day. He’s one of those guys you just can’t dislike (despite being a Bruins fan) so I was really excited for him to become a father.
Little Lincoln was born on the 14th of September, and I took his photos on the 20th. If you’re looking to get newborn photos done, that’s the time you want to do it, while they’re still sleeping most of the day, and very malleable (if you can really use that word when speaking about a human being). Lincoln was very co-operative with the photos when we had him in front of the camera. He of course needed to be fed a couple of times, but that’s why I don’t like to rush these things.
Here’s newborn baby Lincoln, or Linc as I’ll probably end up calling him. Congrats to all of Lincoln’s family, your newest addition is simply adorable.
