It’s a really special thing when I have the opportunity to photograph a brand new baby coming into the world for two brand new parents – but it’s that much cooler when I also have chance to capture their last couple of weeks of pregnancy. Most importantly for the sentiment of documenting such a cool time… but also because I appreciate the opportunity to get to know my clients prior to going into their home and doing such an important session for them.
These guys were pretty amazing to work with. Mom took a lot of time choosing a photographer and asked all of the right questions when reaching out to me.. and I was really honored to know that she chose to work with me. Mom knew exactly what she wanted out of these sessions, and we spent some great quality time over email and the phone really talking about what kind of a “feel” she wanted out of her images and what she was going to do with the images afterwards.
Our maternity session fell on a really neat end-of-Fall, beginning-of-winter day – and I loved how the snow settled softly on our background. But these two were the ones that made the session … the chill didn’t stop this Mom from exuding gorgeousness and positivity, and these two from showing how darn adorable they are as a couple…
And just about two months later, they finally welcomed their little man into the world. Mom’s request for this session was “simplicity” – both in the feel of the images and the colors that we used as backgrounds. So we did that using a combination of my neutral-toned props as well as the beautiful tones inside their home. The result? A super personal, super broken down, super adorable set of images to capture Mr. L in all of his sweetness.
Mr. L couldn’t have been more content the entire session. Was so peaceful when he was asleep and equally content when he was awake just checking out his surroundings.
These candid images are my favorite from the session. I literally could “feel” the love when I walked in the house. And this little man will look at these pictures when he’s 20 or 30 years old and be able to feel that love too. And that. Is awesome.
Thank you all so much for being so incredible to work with over these last couple of months – it was really my pleasure having the chance to collaborate with you on these sessions. This sweet little stud couldn’t be more lovable, and couldn’t have been more of a dream to work with that day. Congrats to all of you on the start of this chapter. The best is yet to come! Until next time…
