Sometimes you forget just how small "newborn" is, but then you watch a smile come across their tiny lips, or you boop their button nose or laugh quietly as their arms flail sporadically in the air.

This little guy was just 16 days old when I photographed him! For me, that meant capturing all his little details, fleeting expressions and the sweet moments with his mom and dad. For his Hokie-loving parents, that meant only about 6,500 days until he becomes a Virginia Tech freshman ... kidding, kidding! (They'd only be a little disappointed if he went to that other Virginia university.)
