About a year ago, I photographed Fletcher a few days after he was born, so I was thrilled when Jessie called me again to photograph their expanding family. The only thing was, over the winter I had decided to move away from styled newborn sessions, and to my relief she was more excited to here that I was photographing newborns more like any family session that I offer.
I want to document a new baby’s arrival and place in the family – and curling them up and propping them up on a beanbag doesn’t let me do that. This change also took away the pressure of scheduling something in the first two weeks, and gave the family a chance to settle in, get to know each other, and start to get into a normal rhythm making it less intrusive for me to step in and spend time with them. As always, I’m honored when any client chooses me, but am even more so when clients come back again and again. Welcome, Lincoln and Happy Birthday to Fletcher!
