“It feels like just yesterday that we met for your maternity session,” I said to Michael’s parents when I arrived at their home. But it was almost three months prior. Another reminder that while days can feel long, time flies. Very, very quickly.
Now, on their front steps, I was bundled in all-things-winter to meet Michael on his 11th day of life.

The air was warmer on the day we first met in November. Leaves had fallen from the New England trees, but the fresh mild air and beautiful light made the day just perfect. Fall in New England really is magical.
Did Michael’s parents anticipate what those first days with a newborn would be like? Did they have any idea how intensely emotional they’d feel when he arrived? I don’t know. But, they knew they’d want to capture those early days forever.
Visiting a new family at their home is something Boston Newborn Photographers do regularly. And the excitement of it never gets old.
Who wouldn’t love witnessing parents completely and totally in love with their new baby?
I know you might need time to get comfortable. You might feel a little overwhelmed that I am there and oops! the baby is crying or hungry.
No worries. I’m a mom, too. I know that nothing ever happens perfectly. Take your time.
I know you might have that special outfit all picked out. Isn’t Michael’s adorable? Not only did I love his suspenders, I knew we were getting a special treat when he opened his eyes throughout our session. This doesn’t always happen with an 11 day old baby!
Michael came ready to roll, bow tie and all.
Less than three months between this couple’s maternity and newborn sessions.
And in just that short amount of time, everything changed forever.
I can’t wait to see them again to hear how it’s going.
