David and Kelli,
I hope you guys know what amazing parents you are. To have a photographer walk into your home and photograph you when you’re adjusting to life a newborn, particularly one who isn’t a fan of sleeping at night, is no small task. Watching you snuggle your new baby, and encourage his big sister to gently love him, and then take the time for diaper changes, and cleaning up spills, was and is so special. You guys are such a blessing, and it’s such a gift to call your friends.
Much love to you all,
It’s always pretty amazing/humbling when you’re allowed to photograph a family as they grow over the years. Here’s Ava as a baby, and then their session this past Noveber, and my goodness, that little girl only gets more and more beautiful.
Moms almost always ask what should we put our baby in, what kind of backdrops should we use, etc. My preference is to keep is as simple as possible. Newborns can easily be overwhelmed and lost in photos if there are lot of items so I opt for a neutral blanket or rug. As for clothes, a onesie or blanket are perfect!
Oh sweet Ava, you and your expressions kill me.
Love love love this photo.
David and Kelli, thank you, thank you, thank you for letting me take these photos of you. Hope you enjoy! 🙂
