You may have noticed I’ve been a little bit… absent on social media lately. A few months ago it all just got to be too much and I gave myself permission to back off on a few things. With 2016 comes a fresh start and a new commitment to blogging, and I couldn’t be happier to start off with Baby Sam, who was born a couple of weeks ago to two of my very favorite clients, Lizzy and Darin, whose wedding I shot way back in one of my first seasons in business!
Shooting and editing this session brought me back to the fundamentals and what I love maybe the most: newborn sessions. Rarely have I seen a baby this young who was so interactive. While watching his parents interacting with him, I swear he was reaching up to hold their hands, looking right into their eyes and saying “Yes, you two, I am totally feeling the love!” There is something totally magical about newborn sessions, and I felt it here for sure.
Amid so many thoughtful, handmade details, like a family tree that Lizzy made from cards at their baby shower, a mobile handmade by Darin, and blankets and hats created by his family and friends, this boy is already so surrounded in love.
