I love when parents just let their kids be.
This is my last session of the year. Thank you to all the families who have invited me along for a small glimpse of your lives together. Thank you for having me in your homes, for showing me your neighborhoods, and for letting your guards down. It's been an honor to work with you.
When is the best time to photograph a newborn? This little lady was nearing the 2 month mark when we met. She was awake, made lots of eye contact, smiled sometimes, and slept sometimes too. You're not always feeling up to a photo shoot in the couple weeks after the baby is born. It's ok to wait :).
Can it be done? Indeed! Sometimes a session indoors at home doesn't work, it doesn't have enough light, or you're in the middle of major renovations, or you're just not loving your place. We can still capture the early newborn days! This session started with some backyard and front stoop photos and continued with a walk around the neighborhood. It was a bit chilly so we cheated a bit and stopped indoors at a local restaurant that was beaming with natural light. Here's to more time outside with the wee one!
