I am so excited to share baby Gemma with you all. I was even more excited to see this family again! It’s been over a year since I last saw them for Marco’s newborn session and when I received the message from Christina that they had welcomed their daughter I was over the moon. How great is it for someone to trust you with their most precious baby? How great is it for someone to trust you with their most precious baby and then invite you back for baby two? That is the BEST compliment I could ever receive. This family is so special to me and I love that they trust me with their littles and their new moments.
I have photographer’s, parent’s, grandparent’s, and even people with no kids ask me all the time how and why I do newborn photography. With all of the weddings and couple portraits how in the world and why do you still do newborn photography? Simple. I love new love. It’s not about being too busy or not wanting to have one of my styles overpower the other. It’s all about the new love. From being first time parents to welcoming the second, third, fourth, or even fifth child. Every parent has that look when they see this blessing they have been chosen for. I absolutely love the moments between the families and their new babies. A mom that finally gets her baby girl, a dad that finally gets his baby boy, a couple that has been trying with no luck that FINALLY meets their miracle, a family that has been waiting months with moments of lost hope for their premature baby to come home, and siblings that aren’t sure what’s going on but they have this instinct of love and protection. All reasons of why I love new love. All reasons of WHY and HOW I make time for newborn sessions. It is not about filling a schedule or meeting an income goal. It’s so much more than that to me.
I adore taking the time with my newborns to make sure they are safe, loved, and snuggled. Let’s face it, who doesn’t love cute, squishy, new & lovable baby snuggles? That is the BEST part about working with my families with newborns (Thank you to all of you who share your blessing with me and also let me get my snuggle time in with them. You have all helped my baby fever tremendously). The first thing I say to a new mom and dad when I arrive and begin the newborn sessions is ” Do you trust me?”. Without gaining their trust neither they or I are comfortable during the session and that makes for an unenjoyable experience. I make sure that when I am contacted for a newborn session I answer all questions from the family and even give a little more information than they ask just to make sure that everyone is comfortable. I share with my families my personal experience in being a mom of two boys as well as my professional experience with newborn clients. I am happy to provide as many references that you need to feel comfortable, and trust me I have not had ONE complaint by my clients. I must be doing something right, right?
If you or someone you know is expecting, CONGRATULATIONS! I hope that you have a moment to contact me so that I can share my newborn website with you (it is not advertised but only shared with inquiries) and we can talk about your photography needs for your arriving or arrived little one. I pride myself in providing beyond amazing experiences for my clients along with beautiful memories they will fall in love with every time they look at them.
Thank you again to all of my families, you have all blessed me in ways I will never be able to thank you for. Here are a few images from this weekends newborn session, she’s beautiful isn’t she? I hope you all enjoy, and if you are wondering… yes I did get my baby girl snuggles in and loved every minute of it (Thank you Marco for sharing!).
