These photos have swiftly become some of my favorites. The coziness of this beautiful first time mom snuggled up with her sweet hubby and little boy, melts be every time. I met Lia and Andrew through a mutual friend and super early if I recall in their pregnancy. Lia really wanted to meet and hear details first so she could best choose the perfect session to celebrate her little one. And I loved that, I love being able to grab a cup of coffee and talk babies, birth and photography! 

It ended up being perfect that she chose an at home newborn session. Because soon after little Jude was born they all ended up moving from this sweet first home they shared as a family of three. Getting to celebrate not just those perfect little details but also the place and setting of where the memories were made always brings another level of depth and story to photos.

There was something so timeless about the style of this session, the joy on their faces and the color bring me back to the 1970s/60s and I completely love it. The whole session screams young love, first time parents, first home, and just the beginning of their long and beautiful story. One of my favorites moments (which was really this whole session:P) was when I asked if they wanted to bring little Jude outside, to get a little fresh air and celebrate the sweet season he was born in. They of course were down and those little sweet moments of them as a family of three on the steps of their home bring me so much joy. Those are the moments they will look back on when Jude goes off to college or moves out of their home for the first time. They will revel in the memories of bringing their little baby home and the sleepless nights they shared. They will cry thinking about how tiny he was and how big he has grown to be. They will be so proud to have been his parents! ... it gives me chills :)

 

If you have a little one on the way and want to celebrate with a sweet Newborn session this I would love to hear from you!

Ok can we talk back up cameras? I am in a constant struggle on what next to invest in, I'd really love a 24-70mm for my Fall season of births and for my vacation to Kenya in December but my back up camera is very poor(like i'm ashamed to even say it :P) Would you invest in a nicer back up camera first? or go with the lens? My Canon 6D is only 2 years old.  Getting the back up seems like the responsible thing to do but the lens seems like the thing I want to do.  I also have big dreams of getting the Mark IV and making my 6D the back up but that wont be for another year or so to save up.  Also if I wanted to get the lens and back up what would be a good camera that runs lower price then the Canon 6D like a nicer crop sensor? would that even be worth it? ugh the debate within me is so real right now

I just adore this family for so many reasons! not only are they relaxed and adorable, they have a way of connecting with each other that is just beyond words. Their connection as a couple has only grown since they welcomed their new little girl into the world. She is the sweetest little thing and so lucky to be apart of such a comfy and happy home. It was such a joy getting to capture not only their maternity photos together awaiting their new arrival but also getting to see how they have grown in welcoming this little girl into their lives and opened their hearts leaps and bounds to become parents. They reflect only happiness and contentment throughout this session and in these moments I am overcome by how lucky I am to get to enter people's lives and homes and capture these new seasons of a family.  This is just the first chapter of such a warm and wonderful story for this little family. Congratulations for these two and their gorgeous little daughter.

William D: Fresh 48 hours

So i'm obviously a little behind, somehow I missed posting the birth of our little nephew 6 months ago! I did not forget to blog about his adorable 6 month session (see here) but I'm usuing my TBT to try and catch up today! Here is our fresh 48 hours session with little William D.

You'll probably see a lot of this munchkin in my portfolio because since his birth we have all fallen in love with his kissable cheeks and calm personality.  When he was born my husband and I were given the opportunity to stay with our little niece, then 1, while mom and dad relaxed/labored at the hospital! The next day I showed up with big sister and had to capture the straight up joy and celebration that was the birth of our little nephew! 

Fresh 48 sessions are a new term I'm learning but have been doing for a very long time. I used to work for Bella Baby Photography in the hospital back in Tennessee so those fresh moments after a little one is born have always had a special place in my heart.  

Those 2 days in the Hospital are  a weird middle world between being pregnant and bringing a little one home. The faces of joy, excitement, worry and unknown are all over mom. dad and big sisters face. Its so incredible 6 months later to see these moments and remember those faces. 

** Update** Kate has gotten used to having a brother in the last 6 months, I think she even kind of likes him
