WHO: You guys remember that lovely couple from yesterday’s post? Well this is the second part of their journey into parenthood and the welcome celebration of their little love, Louna. She was seriously one of the more perfect newborns I have ever met, she wasn’t sleepy or smooshy but a perfect little wide eyed angel. Plus we can’t forget the pup, Sophie, making her presence felt after the baby too and embracing her new job as protector. I loved having this sweet new family in front of my camera!
WHAT: The best part of booking a Maternity to Newborn session is getting your new little bundle some time in the spotlight. Newborn photos are some of my favorites to do, not only because I get to meet a tiny babe but I get to capture those bonding moments with the new baby and their family. Whether it is a first baby or a third, its a special event that needs photos. Plus they really grow and change so so fast. So many parents tell me at the ordering session a couple weeks later, how much their baby has changed and how thankful they are to have that short newborn time captured. Especially because it often feels like a blur for new sleep deprived parents. Little Louna was no exception she was so sweet tiny, by the time I saw her again for proofing she was already looking so different and so big. Having these photos to always look back on and make you say “awwww she was so tiny!” is the best part!
WHERE: All newborn sessions are done in-home. I find it is so much easy for new parents and little babes. This session was in Seal Beach, they had such a bright light filled home that made the photos feel so cozy and happy. I always hear clients apologizing for a messy home, look you just welcomed a baby into the world, it is my job to cut out all the noise and focus on the love. Plus your home is such a special place, it’s where you brought your baby to for the first time. It’s nice to have the place documented too so you can show your kiddos when they get older.
WHY: I will say it a thousand times, newborn photos are a must! This session was to celebrate the arrival of sweet Miss Louna, it was so special to see Jasmine and Jason finally becoming the parents they had been eagerly waiting to become. To see their smiles when they looked at their little love, to have those moment forever is so so special. Those are the moments that become part of your story as a family, that are passed down from generation to generation. Those baby photos are the same ones that you pull out to compare when a new baby is born. I am always so happy to be there when it all started, before right before baby and right after. So much changes and that love that is shared grows, it’s so obvious in the photos. That is why these shoots are the best!
