Baby Theodore *newborn Lifestyle Session*

One of the best parts about being a wedding photographer is getting to see my brides and groom's families grow. Watching their life's change in such an amazing way. It's beautiful.

It's been over 2 years since I had the honor of photographing Sabrina and Andrew's wedding in Flagstaff, AZ. Their daughter, Anabelle, was only two months old then. Now she's two years old and FULL of personality. She's still pretty unsure of her brother, but I have no doubt that before long she will realize just how fun he is! Maybe even make the connection that he is like a real life baby doll! It's just a matter of time before she adorns him with her Elsa's crown or covers him in stickers (or in the case of my little guy his sisters added "friends" to his tummy time).

Theodore's teddy bear room couldn't have been more fitting. How clever are they with that theme?! He loved to snuggle with his Teddy. It was adorable! <3 Congratulations Sabrina and Andrew. He's perfect and I am so happy for you!

World, meet sweet Alivia. Six weeks new and perfect in every way.

I can't describe what an honor it is to be welcomed into the home of a family with a newborn. I walk into a new fresh time in a parents life. A time when every thing their precious baby does is brand new and fascinating. I remember what that was like with my own children. I could look at their tiny features for the longest time and never get bored of them... now I get to capture that for other parents who understand that exact feeling so completely.

Ten tiny fingers. Ten tiny toes. Perfect squishy soft newborn cheeks. Photographing sweet Titus was bliss. Just as much was seeing the love in his parents eyes for him. The way this one tiny person has not only become their entire world but how he has filled it up.

This is why I enjoy lifestyle session for newborns. Babies are born and mothers and father are made. Lifestyle photography sessions celebrate those new moments...the way they gently stroked his skin and layered kisses on his forehead.  It goes by in the blink of an eye. I am so honored I was able to savor a little piece of that for Rachel and Kyle.
