I love newborns.
Even more so, I love shooting a photo story of a newborn! When it's a first-time parent, it's neat to watch them adjust to having a baby in their home and in their life. When it's a second-time parent, or third or fourth, there is a change. A calmness, a more relaxed approach to welcoming a newborn into their home. I love watching parents in either of these stages, because it reminds me of my own experience of becoming a mom. It's a very special time that goes by so quickly (even quicker the second time), but having those first days documented are something that you will cherish in the months ahead.
You forget the lack of sleep, the continual feedings, the first days of seeing your children bond, and the smallness of what a newborn feels like.
When Kelly asked me to do their newborn session for Susanna, I was so excited! I had done their newborn session for their firstborn, Judah, and I knew that with a baby girl in their family it was going to be a very sweet change for them. I love their family, and I love their cute little kiddos. They are clients who we now consider to be friends and it was an honor to capture some of Susanna's first photos. Thanks Kelly, Jack, Judah and Susanna!
