I met Desmond when he was around one month old and he reminded me so much of his big sister at that age. He even wore one of the same outfits that she wore for her newborn session a few years ago. It's amazing how much change change in a few years! I really love arriving to a session and capturing those last few minutes of getting ready before we start. It gives kids a little time to adjust to having me in their home and we really capture some nice "real life" moments :)
Celia's family recently moved into this home, but you would never know it. They had already put their personal touch on almost every room. Big brother was so proud of his room and he enjoyed showing me around and some of his favorite toys while his sister took a little break. Celia was such a happy baby and was pretty content during most of our session as long as she was being snuggled or fed. My sessions are very laid back so you are free to stop and feed, have a snack, or take a break at any time. I make sure we have enough time for it all so we are never rushed. Take a look at sweet Celia and her wonderful family :)
There is something just so sweet about a newborn session with first time parents. There are so many peaceful moments where the parents are in just total awe of their new baby. It always brings me back to my memories of the first week home with my oldest daughter. There is something so special (and terrifying!) about that first two weeks. And while I do miss the chaos and fun that an older sibling brings to the mix (really, I do love toddler chaos!), I love being able to relax a bit more and shoot much more deliberately. Take a peek at Joseph's session on the blog today. I really miss those lazy newborn days!
I was so excited to meet Evelyn at her newborn session. It didn't seem all that long ago that I was taking maternity pictures of her beautiful mama. I loved how much everyone in the family adored this sweet girl. We had a relaxed, easy-going session and just enjoyed newborn life. I'm excited to be in the process of catching up on this blog and sharing more from this session with you :)
