A bonus of being a photographer is getting to be the one who captures those first moments of your friends becoming parents.  I was so excited when this couple announced that they were expecting and even more pleased when they wanted me to capture images of their brand new baby boy.  Of course, I knew this new baby boy was coming in November.  I just didn’t expect so many other sessions to be scheduled all around the same time.  I was spinning for quite a bit.  But fortunately, I was ready for them to come and check out my little studio space I’ve created in my home.

My newborn sessions are meant to be simple and relaxed.  I want the focus to be on this beautiful new person with only a few wrap and blanket options for color.

But hopefully, you’ll agree that the patience pays off in the end.
