I truly love what I do. I love my JOB. If you can really even imagine that doing something THIS wonderful for others can be called a job. 🙂 This beautiful family came to me as a last minute referral from another maternity+newborn client and I am so glad I could squeeze them in! We met yesterday when their baby girl was 17 days old and even outside that 2 week window she was absolutely amazing. She kept teasing us with little half smiles and other sweet faces. Her big brother was adorable! At age 2 I still can’t believe we got him to lay down and hug his little sister…she is so loved and protected. <3 I love that the family brought a beautiful green and gold sari to use in the session too. I always try to incorporate items with special meaning (especially when it’s gorgeous fabric like this!! yay!) 😉
I haven’t talked about it much in my posts, yet it usually comes up while I’m talking to clients during a session – how I got started specializing in newborn photography. I was talking to her mama about my start, how I had helped photograph a few weddings early on, but I realized my heart just wasn’t “in it” like it is with babies. Yes, a wedding is a special day. But the birth of a child?? Epic. To me it is monumental. Your wedding is one day. Your child is your EVERY day. For a lifetime. THAT is why I love what I do so much. The tiny human I get to photograph becomes a precious little person and you forget how small they were! Our session isn’t just for the parents, it’s for the baby too. Your kids get to look back and not only see how small they were but also what their parents looked like (and how much they loved them). Gah! Ok, I could go on forever. But really, it’s these moments that I treasure. <3 Congrats G family! I’m so glad I could capture this special time for you. Here are a few favorites from our session – Enjoy!
