This session…oh my…so many emotions. First of all, Mama is an INCREDIBLE wedding photographer, and seeing her work put my “pre-session” jitters into overdrive! Then the family arrived, and there was an incredibly strong sense of joy and love in the air which instantly calmed the nerves. This beautiful boy, Lance Jr….aka Lamie!, was an angel for his session. Instead of watching as she thought she would, Lamie’s Mama relaxed and napped in the family room, trusting me with her greatest gift. This is not something I take lightly, even after nearly nine years! I’ve had the honor of watching Lamie grow via Mama’s instagram account, and he’s only getting cuter and cuter as the weeks go by. Hard to imagine, right???
Yes, babies CAN be expressive. Yes, babies CAN smile. Yes, babies CAN stare down the camera. hehehe Rafael had lots of adorable expressions and fantastic eye contact during his session! And those cheeeeeeeksssss…YUM!
The love and tenderness in the air during Noelle’s session left me longing for the days when our ladies were new souls. To fill your arms with perfection is a gift, and you could feel the sense of gratitude… And this sweet girl was a dream to capture. Delicate and feminine, and perfect.
Zayan is incredibly blessed to be surrounded by a positive energy and light obvious to all who meet his family. I admit to some squealing when Mama emailed to say #2 was on the way and she’d like me to capture her new addition. YAY! This is a special bunch, and he is a beautiful new soul. <3
Grace was a delight to capture at her newborn portrait session. She smooshed and posed just right, and won me over with her perfect fuzzy hair, beautiful skin, and yummy little rolls. It is during sessions like her’s I have to remind myself to stop snapping away and end the session – time flies when you are having fun! :)
Handsome Henry was a DREAM model for his newborn session in the studio. He let me mold him from head to toe, including all those cute little fingers and sweet baby toes. His adorable expressions were the icing on the cake. This little love was not only an honor to capture, but a total joy, as well!
Can you imagine how much my cheeks hurt from smiling during this session??? These beautiful souls…the whole family!…had me floating on air and grinning like a fool. These siblings together for example…I melt.
And Miss Julia, so feminine at barely two weeks new. Gorgeous little features like her siblings. Perfect skin glowing in pink. Yep…melted!
And THIS! No bribes. No making too much of a fool of myself. (hehehe) Look at the love and joy. Melting all over again just looking at this!
Look how peaceful and beautiful and oh-so-perfectly round. And she held her little foot like a pro! Sigh…
