This was such a sweet, snuggly newborn session! When I was welcomed into Susan and Jenny's home, I remember it being so calm and quiet. Their curly-haired toddler Tavi was playing in the living room, and baby Desmond was getting changed upstairs.
While Susan and Jenny finished getting ready, I got on the floor with Tavi, so he could warm up to this strange new person in his home.
After a few shots with Susan and Desmond, it was time to nurse, so I sat in the dining room and chatted with Jenny, while Tavi tapped away on the piano.
Later, we headed upstairs to photograph in the nursery. Susan and Jenny snuggled with Desmond in their wooden rocking chair, while Tavi ran and rolled on the rug.
I love when an at-home session feels like just a normal day at home. Because "normal" days — the ones filled with our little routines and simple moments between each other — are the ones that make life so special.
Susan and Jenny — thank you so much for trusting me to capture this time in your life. You have such a beautiful family!
