How can I not share this sneak peek of little Ryder? He’s the baby to the beautiful maternity session we recently photographed!
I love this image. A new baby held tight in his Daddy’s strong hands. And of course this image reminds me of the sweet song…”Daddy’s Hands” which has now been in my head while I worked on Ryder’s photos. So now for you to enjoy a song in your head (here’s some of the lyrics) =)
I remember Daddy´s hands, folded silently in prayer.
And reaching out to hold me, when I had a nightmare.
You could read quite a story, in the callouses and lines.
Years of work and worry had left their mark behind.
I remember Daddy´s hands, how they held my Mama tight,
And patted my back, for something done right.
There are things that I´ve forgotten, that I loved about the man,
But I´ll always remember the love in Daddy´s hands.
Daddy’s hands were soft and kind when I was cryin´.
Daddy´s hands, were hard as steel when I´d done wrong.
Daddy´s hands, weren´t always gentle
But I´ve come to understand.
There was always love in Daddy´s hands.
More of this sweet little boy soon!
