The images will make your ovaries ache, your heart sing, and they might just make you ugly cry, too.
Philadelphia photographer Dan Cuellar knows something no one else seems to about capturing the sweet, lovely, innocent essence of a newborn in a photo: He ensures the babies are fed and cuddled for hours, and then just as they nod off, he starts snapping away.
The result? The most gorgeous newborn photos maybe ever.
The babies he photographs are under 2-weeks old, which he thinks is optimum for the portraits. And it’s hard to argue with this kind of perfection.
Take a look at the photos in which you can practically feel, smell and taste these little bundles of love, and be prepared to melt:
