This shoot warmed my heart. I could have photographed this sweet family all day. Their ginger, little newborn…so precious. I could not be happier for Christa and Jake in this new phase of life. I met them years ago soon after I received their wedding email inquiry. It started with their engagements and I’ve been so blessed to record many of their milestone events for them over the years.
Lifestyle newborn shoots are some of my favorite shoots. I love recording newborns soon after they are born, interacting and still getting to know their sweet families and their new home. How can you not love this? In this session, it was pretty cool to watch Christa admire Jake with their little guy and vice versa. I think sometimes in the early days with baby at home it just will all the sudden hit you, that you’re a mom or dad or that you have two kids or three kids. You can help but get emotional. There’s a lot of raw emotion in these lifestyle newborn shoots, and I love to look for these moments and photograph them.
