First born babies, they take my breath away. It's amazing how in a blink of the eye, this little person arrives in the world and they completely transform two (or more) people in a way they never thought possible.
Seriously, I fell in love with this family. Before baby girl even arrived on the scene, I chatted with her mom and just knew in my heart this would end up being a favorite session of mine. I arrived at their sweet little home (which was awesomely decorated too!) and my heart melted the moment I walked in. Friends, you can feel the love in these photos from the way they change her, to the way dad tries to soothe baby girl to sleep, I was smiling so much behind my camera my cheeks hurt.
And often when a couple brings a new baby into the world, there are some grandparents to go along with her.
If I could have grandparents at every session, I would be one happy lady. :)
I enjoy photographing babies on their own, but for the most part, mom and dad snuggling and holding their newest family member is the meat and potatoes for me. (Spoken like a true "almost" vegetarian, right?)
And the best part - is right at the end of the session, when we've spent so much time together, the family literally just hangs out and chats and I keep taking photos. Almost always, that is where the magic happens.
Interested in having newborn baby photos captured in a relaxed, authentic and super fun way? Let's chat toady. I love traveling to DC, Maryland and Virginia for newborn documentary lifestyle photography.
