I’m not going to lie, Van and Megan are friends of ours and I adore them! I don’t expect my friends to always choose me as their photographer, photography is both a technical skill and a creative art. While I may be technically right for you, perhaps I am not your creative cup of tea, you know? That being said I LOVE shooting friends and family, and I was thrilled to photograph Braelyn aka Bean Bag when she was barely a week old.
Isn’t she perfect? And since Megan is a friend of mine I was able to kiss all over that precious little noggin, and yes, she smelled like heaven!
Welcome to the world, Bean Bag. We love you.
The greatest compliment a photographer can receive is being hired repeatedly, so I was honored when the K family whom I had shot for the Holiday season announced they were having a new baby girl and asked me to capture those newborn moments.
The cheeks on this baby were absolutely edible.
Ryn joins big brother Ridge and big sister extraordinaire Riley. If I know one thing, it’s that Baby Ryn is in good hands. The only thing greater to me than seeing a new baby is seeing a new baby be lavished with love by bigger siblings. Personally I’ve had one baby who couldn’t wait to be a big brother and one who, really was put out and came to love his new baby. Whatever the journey siblings take it’s such a special one and I love when big siblings want to get in on the fun.
Sure, I was there to shoot baby Ryn, but am I really going to turn away this?
Grandma had made Ryn a darling blankie and asked if I might take her photo on it. This is now my new favorite thing, incorporating gifts or family heirlooms to newborn photos.
Baby Ryn was not only welcomed by mom, dad, Ridge and Riley but both sets of grandparents were there to help love, feed, change and oh yes, snuggle her.
This little angel is going to be just fine. And I can only hope I get to be there to see her celebrate her first with a big old cake smash session!
