I love that my friend, who is a mom to two boys, just had a baby girl.
I loved going to visit her and meeting her new daughter.
I loved hearing my friend tell her birth story and I loved seeing the tears in her eyes as she remembered the details.
Wayyyy back in the spring I had a newborn session with a cute little man and his doting his parents in their home in Boston. And I created a very special photo/video fusion for this family that I never shared on the blog. Oh, how I love going back and watching these again and again.
I just love the emotion that comes from seeing the video and stills together and set to music. Stay tuned, photo video fusions will be a new product offering for my clients in 2014! (more…)
A couple of weeks ago I highlighted a very special moment between two grandparents and their brand new granddaughter. And I loved so many other images from this newborn session that I just knew I would need to do a full blog post. I have so many favorites!
So often after a newborn session, I find myself focusing on the solo shots of mom & baby and on images that capture the bond they share. After all, I’ve been a new mom before, and I never get tired of witnessing the very special connection between mothers and their brand new babies.
But at my newborn session this past weekend, the tender moments between father & son simply stole my heart. The photographs of 8 day old Sean with his father ( and namesake! ) have quickly become some of my most favorite images ever. I just love the contrast between the big strong arms of this proud papa and his tiny 7 pound baby boy. I had a hard time choosing only a couple to highlight here!
Last Friday I had the honor of photographing beautiful 10 day old Franklin ( “Frankie” ) and his family in their home in West Roxbury, Massachusetts. And I was so lucky to spend an entire hour alone with just mom and her new baby before the rest of the family arrived. These quiet moments are so rare in a house where a new baby lives and I cherish them so much. I can focus on the the amazing connection between mom and baby and the essence of being in love with a new little being. I keep coming back to these favorites and literally feel my heart swell because I feel so lucky to be doing what I love.
