World, welcome Xavier! Proud Aunt Tatiana here to show off my brand spankin’ new nephew’s newborn photos I shot yesterday!
This big ol’ hunk a chunk’s papa, Estevan, is a police officer with the KCPD.
These need to go in his patrol vehicle!
Xavier was kind enough to crack one smile the entire shoot. He’s probably dreaming of his Dad and Uncle Frankie catching the bad guys (since Frankie is also a proud member of law enforcement)!
He is the first Duque boy of the next generation, so he is the talk of the town!
Born on July 3rd, weighing in at 8lbs, 6oz and a whopping 19.6 inches, he is literally a BIG deal!
His birthday has special meaning to the family, as his late great-grandfather’s birthday was July 4th. His mother, Jessica, explained his name also pays homage to his abuelo (grandfather) and bisabuelo (great-grandfather) who were both named Javier. Mom and Dad added the “X” for a unique flair!
Can we just talk about his face for a second? Just like his father! I’m allowed to say that since I am family, too!
Xavier is the third of the Vargas-Duque bunch. Nya is the eldest, and used-to-be-the-baby-of-the-family Mila, is now the newfound middle child. Mila was feeling a bit blue to not be the center of attention at the shoot, so she started coloring herself blue with chalk! She’s still cute!
As you’ll know by now reading our other newborn blogs, there’s a lot that can happen at a newborn shoot! Babies run on their own time, and always keep you guessing on what they will do next. Or, sometimes they poop on you. It happens.
Speaking of — Xavier needed a little time to poop out the modeling jitters, so as I was waiting for the next dress change, the girls decided to have fun with the frames I brought along!
I didn’t pose them or tell them what to do! Sometimes, letting kids just do their thing makes for the most precious photos! I can’t believe how grown Nya looks in these – STOP!
Okay, she’s still the lovable goofball I watched My Little Pony with years ago.
Mila was really eager to be in the spotlight! That smile melts my heart!
Okay, so back to what we came to see. Baby Xavier is truly a work of art! Wanna know how I captured that shot above? Take a look at our Facebook page! It involved a ladder …
It’s so incredible to have seen the journey of bringing Xavier into this world and seeing the joy he brings to his parents. Welcome, Xavier, to the Duque family! Your big sisters are going to take care of you!
