It is always a privilege to capture a newborn baby's first portraits. It is equally as nice to get to know each new parent.
I always ask about the birth and later more about the couple, how they met, how long they've been married... I find out so much about my clients during the newborn session that by the time we are done capturing their images I feel like I've known them for years.
I like that people comfortable with me and are open to sharing their life's stories. I know some photographers write blogs based on these stories the family shares during their session. While I love the idea of capturing the birth story and the history leading the parents to this point in their life I also feel a bit like its not my place to share too many details!
So here are some beautiful portraits of a beautiful family! A very strong mamma and the guy that has her back!
