It wasn't that long ago that Dave and his extremely expectant bride invited me over to snap some photos of her final days as a mother-to-be.  I was thrilled when they, and his parents (who by sheer coincidence grew up in Panama, just like mine!), invited me back just a few short weeks later to meet little Stella and grab some of the first photos of her (not taken with an iPhone).

From the tiny fingers and toes to the badass-mohawk knitted hat, this child has ninety-nine kinds of character.  I'm looking forward to capturing more and more photos of this growing family over the coming years.
