I can tell you over and over how much I love newborn sessions, but don't you get tired of hearing me say the same thing? I always wonder that. Anyway...I DO love em. I DO love the newness of having a new life come into a family. I love to watch the giggles on the mom and dad's faces as they adore their precious little punkin. I love hearing about the sleep patterns (or lack thereof). I love it all. Poop, pee, butt wrinkles, the whole sha-bang. Sweet, sweet, sweet.
I met this couple last year when they were married. She had me come over to photograph her and her husband in their dress and tux. This year, they have a sweet little pickle added to their family and as I watched her with both of them, I was completely overwhelmed with emotion. She is so thankful for her life and for her boys. She has so much love for both of them, so much patience with both of them and such an appreciation for the preciousness of life. I'm blessed to know them...and just as blessed that they trust me to document such a momentous occasion for them.
...and great friends!!! These people have blessed my life so much in the past 7 years. I can't wait to get to live beside them!
What a serene place to shoot! This family found this great spot to do their session, so we trekked up the mountain and spent an hour playing and sweating together. Glamourous, heh? ;)
Sweat may not be glamourous, but I think the images are. I love the softness of their clothing choices with the organic surroundings. Beautiful love in this family, absolutely hysterical little boy and this baby has cheeks that I could chew on for days. Enjoy watching the love!
