“There is a wonder in the birth of a baby that takes us beyond the mundane and into the realm of the divine.” -unknown
How true are those words? When a baby is born, something miraculous happens. Sure, we could go into the science of it all but beyond that – a new SOUL is created. There is something inspiring about being in the presence of new life. He has the potential to change the world. Every influential person started as a baby, fresh and sweet just like little Jonathan.
This precious boy is already so very loved by his big sisters. Biggest sister Olivia was so interested in everything I was doing and wanted to watch as I wrapped and posed her baby brother. It was so fun for me to photograph her because I photographed her first birthday portraits many years ago when I first started photography. We have both grown a LOT since then. Middle sister Leah was curious and sweet and full of energy!! Mom was worried that she was being too toddler-y but as a mom of three – I speak toddler – I have been there. Sweet Leah and I ended up having a great time together and we got some beautiful shots of these siblings.
My favorite part of photographing a newborn (besides the planning and the prop buying) is the reveal. I love to see the look on Mom’s face when she sees the photos of her babies at our ordering appointment. We get to sit together and watch a video of the photos from our session. As a creative, is brings me such joy to see how impactful a portrait session can be. I am not just taking photos for social media, but memories that celebrate a moment in time that will be cherished for generations.
