Hello again!! I can’t believe we’re in October and I haven’t shared a newborn since June! Yikes! I did take fewer newborns this summer to focus on our weddings but even so, I have a backlog of a dozen newborns that I have yet to share with you!! Now that weddings are slowing down quite a bit, I’ll be sharing a few of my newest and tiniest little clients with you all! First up is Abigail! She was born in July and she’s already two and a half months old. When I see her pop up in my IG feed looking waaaay older than she was in these images, I can only imagine how nostalgic her parents are when they see these images. Having a niece and nephew, I know how each little stage in life is amazing and so fun, but those first few weeks after birth when your little one is at their tiniest just seem to go soooo fast.
I’ve had the pleasure of capturing this family many, many times. I used to work with Abigail’s mommy back when we were both teachers and I’m so glad we’ve kept in touch through the years. I thought that when I photographed her second daughter that would be the last newborn photos I took for her and her family so you can imagine my surprise when I heard she was expecting her third child! So much joy!
On the day of Abigail’s newborn session, we focused on parent and sibling photos first. I think mommy was a little nervous about how the two oldest would behave but they were amazing!! They were so sweet with their little girl, cuddled with her, and were just beyond perfect. Kudos to mommy and daddy for their parenting skills! Even if there was a little bribery involved, ha!
All jokes aside, this session just melts my heart. Following this family’s journey has been a privilege and documenting their milestones is an even bigger honor. I’m so thankful for this beautiful family! Enjoy this peek into my time with them.
