Fernando

This one is close to home....Or better: IT IS HOME!

I could not have been happier to photograph my beautiful sister Mari with her super duper cute son Fernando and her amazing husband Antonio.

I had photographed Mari when she was 7 months pregnant (if you go back some postings you will see a picture of her and her pretty big belly) and this time I had a chance to meet my nephew for the first time and photograph them together.

It was a lot of fun to spend some time getting to know him and be instantly in love... Even better was to see my sister happy and watch her being an amazing mom.

Although my trips back to Brazil are limited to once a year (or twice if I am lucky) ... thanks to modern days I will watch him grow via Skype. I know it's not the same... but I will always look forward to grab his cute chubby legs again and say: "universo sideral do planeta terra!!!" ... sorry... inside joke :)
