Last week I had the opportunity to photograph this lovely lady at her home snuggled up with mom and dad. In home newborn sessions hold a special place in my heart. It’s such an honor to be trusted to enter someone’s home and document the way they are caring for the newest member of their family, capturing the chaos, sheer exhaustion, excitement and beauty of this special time in life. Mom and Dad are doing a beautiful job.
For the last several years I have volunteered my services to raise money for the Columbus Babywearing group by hosting fundraising mini-sessions. This year things worked out a little differently due to covid, but I was still able to host a few families in my backyard studio who are members of the group. Got some great shots of them snuggling their babes!
A recap of 2019.
I recently had the opportunity to photograph one of my favorite families just before and immediately after the birth of their third child. It’s amazing how much life slows down (briefly) after baby’s arrival. Each day is a blessing and one to be taken slowly, with little or no agenda. They asked me to visit one morning and capture the raw moments of life with a new little one.
I’ve been dipping my toes into newborn photography lately, and it is a whole other art form. Thankfully I had a lovely, sleepy model to practice on for this in-home session. Happy birth day sweet baby E, welcome to the world!
