This is the recap I've looking forward to the most! For me, there's nothing better than being able to preserve newborn memories for moms and dads. After all, those early days fly by with no warning at all.
There are so many things about a new baby that you never want to forget — their wrinkly hands and feet, how small they look in your husband's arms or lying beside their siblings, they way they move their little mouths. If only photos could capture that sweet newborn smell!
I couldn't feel more honored that these families trusted me to document their adorable, snuggly babies (who are SO big now, by the way!).
I kicked off 2018 with my first Fresh 48 session ever! It was so meaningful to document baby Stella just hours after she was born, in the place where she was brought into the world. See more from her Fresh 48 hospital session here.
This was an at-home family session with new baby James! His big sisters loved on him the whole time, and it was so beautiful! See more highlights here.
I loved all the detail shots from this sweet baby boy's at-home newborn session. See more highlights here.
I have so many favorites from baby Sutton's newborn session. He and his sisters are adorable together! See more on the full blog recap.
Graham was so peaceful during his Fresh 48 session, and I couldn't get over him matching with his momma! See more of his photos here.
Baby Desmond's session was so snuggly, bright and colorful — easily one of my favorites! He is so loved by his mommas and big brother! See more from their at-home session here.
Baby Wyatt didn't want to miss out on any of the fun during his newborn session — and that was okay with me, because he has the prettiest blue eyes! See more from his session here.
