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.
