I’m a little behind on this one – we’re about to shoot Hayes’ 7 month session this weekend! But better late than never, right?
I love newborn sessions. They are so intimate and I am always incredibly honored that brand new parents will have me come in during those emotional first days of having a baby. It’s so raw and beautiful and moving to witness that transition into parenthood. I love these shoots because they are so slow – we move at the pace of the baby. There’s a lot of breaks for cuddling and nursing, and I get to breathe in that new baby smell for hours. It’s amazing how much they change in those first few weeks. And how in six months they can look so different and exactly the same. It’s incredible.
Thank you to Anne Dean and Rand for sharing this time with me! You can see their maternity session here (and their adorable dog Fitz!)
