Little Avey was such an amazing little subject. She was just a tender 4 days old when I she had her newborn photography session, and already you could tell she was the sweetest little thing. She barely cried during the session, and when she did she was comforted by the weight, warmth, and smell of her daddy's hand on her chest. I saw this poem and thought it was perfect for little baby Avey and the love mom and dad had for her.
I Never Knew
I never knew I could love so much, until the day I felt your touch.
I softly kissed your tiny cheek, and from under your lashes I saw you peek.
Your beautiful eyes so small and blue, my sweet little baby just brand new.
I cannot wait to watch you grow, from your little head to your tiny toes.
My daughter my love, my little joy, my little angel, my baby doll toy.
I promise to love you with all my heart, I'm here for you from the very start.
I'll comfort you when you cry, I'll answer true when you ask me, Why?
While you grow be sweet and kind, and show all others how much you shine.
