Remember this heart-melting maternity shoot? Well I was lucky enough to work with these beautiful people again when they welcomed their sweet baby girl into the world. What a special transition it is to be able to photograph the anticipation and love surrounding their arrival and then the joy and celebration that occurs just weeks or months later when we meet him/her in person. It's one of the coolest parts of my job. I enjoy so much developing that relationship through multiple shoots and sharing in these huge life changes with my clients. It is truly an honor to peek into their lives and capture their milestones unfolding.
New mama Bethany did an incredible job designing this sweet girl's nursery. It's full of tasteful touches and personal details like her husband's baby book on the side table and that sign above the changing table... yep, she made that! Gorgeous, right? I love all the soft neutrals and hints of gold that create a space of calm for all the hours they'll spend there.
I also have a special place in my heart for military families, so was thrilled at their request to incorporate dad (Paul) in his uniform with their shoot. These images are extra special because they just found out he'll be deploying this fall. What a incredible sacrifice our military make in their personal lives to provide for our country. Our support for them and their loved ones back home is so crucial!
The love these two have for their little miracle was so alive during our shoot as they shared special moments cuddling, feeding, rocking, and admiring her in all her fresh, 2 week old glory. I am so glad they chose to do my Baby Plan so I can continue capturing their special relationship as it develops over the year!
Welcome to the world, little darling! I can't wait to watch you grow!
