Last week Natasha brought her sweet bubba, Sandra in to see me, at 8 days old for her newborn photos. I love chatting with moms when they come for newborn sessions. The stories and love that they have for their new babies is always so beautiful. She is gorgeous <3
I loved this relaxed session with Hugo. He’s such a sweet little baby, although he did give me a lot of dirty looks! It cracks me up that babies do that. Here are a few of this gorgeous little bubba. I shot this on location at their home.
It feels like I was just at their house to shoot the maternity session, and now there’s this sweet baby only weeks later. This little sweetie was not interested in sleeping at all. Lots of yawning but not much actual sleeping… but that’s ok because it gave me the time and space to capture the connection between mom and dad and baby. She is so loved, and it makes me happy to capture that. Thanks for letting me come into your home during this very special time.
“Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.” ~Thomas Merton
I love this quote. Things don’t always go our way, and life brings us all tough times. In mine, I seem to always fall back on either art or running, or both. Both Bella and Lacey love art and I hope that they carry that with them. It has a way of helping us dig through the mess and find ourselves, but it also allows us to get lost in something, to just feel and not think for a little while. For me it’s a form of meditation. I love it and I really hope to pass that love on to my kids as much as I can.
Last week Zoe’s parents brought her in to my home studio for her newborn session. She has such soft and pretty features. I can’t wait to see what a pretty little girl she grows into. It’s so amazing to me to see the difference in how a baby looks between 10 days and 6 months. It truly is a miracle the way they grow and become the giggling, dimpled cherubs in such a short period of time. Feeling nostalgic for those days with my kids. Savour every moment, it passes so quickly.
