I'm delighted to introduce another October newborn, baby Max. I was invited to capture Joann's maternity photos alongside his first year series, which continues into 2014. These maternity photos were taken only a few short weeks before Max's arrival on a very wet fall day. The photo above is a top 10 favorite of mine from 2013, proving that beauty is all around and sometimes you just need to dance in the rain. I just love the playful spirit in this photo. Thank you Joann for trusting me. You were one gorgeous mama-to-be.
Max's newborn session was shot on an extremely chilly day at the end of October. With no hope of getting outside like I originally planned, I knew a low-pressure lifestyle session was just the thing for this new family. It ended up being just the perfect continuation to their maternity photos. We revisited some of the same spaces in their home that they once occupied as only a couple, but now as a family of three. Joann was able to feed Max on demand throughout the session and her husband Jon sang a soft lullaby by Harry Chapin to soothe Max so sweetly. These are moments that I get to bare witness to. Memories that will forever be a part of this family. It is a true honor to do what I do every week. Welcome sweet boy!
love having the time and making the effort to do a little bit of traditional portraiture alongside my tremendously emotional lifestyle work. Capturing a new family in these tender moments is so very special. A mini maternity session is to a baby story series what an engagement session is to a wedding. It's a simple add-on to a series and a wonderful introduction for creating a relationship between me and any new clients.
If you're expecting in early to mid 2014 and looking for a newborn photographer, please do reach out. I would love to chat about my many investment options and savings plans for beautifully captured memories throughout the first year of your baby's life.
