This little man will be celebrating his first birthday this month! When I was walking down memory lane today, in preparation for his birthday shoot this weekend, I realized I had never posted his full newborn session. It was a beautiful, warm Spring morning – the windows were open, the birds were chirping and the new Spring growth was turning everything green!
I have to tell you how much these images mean to me… This beautiful momma has been with me through thick and thin, as my style of photography has unfolded and changed over the years. We first met when her firstborn was just a few days old and I worked my way through one of my very first newborn sessions. The newborn in this photo is baby #3! I have moved from super posed, backdrops, props and bonnets with baby #1 to a more relaxed “lifestyle” feel, and a-few-posed-photos-thrown-in with baby #2, to a completely unposed, storytelling style with baby #3!
As we sat and chatted during this session, I mentioned that these photos would be really different than the previous two newborn sessions, and I added “I think you will like them.” Her response was, “I always do.” Thanks, momma, for always being in my corner and believing in me no matter where I am in my journey as a photographer!
