Meet Rhett. I just about melted over this sweet nine day old, as we worked to capture the wonder of those first days at home. It’s not often that I photograph an entire newborn session without so much as a peep out of the baby, but this little boy was perfectly content to sleep through his shoot. We actually had to work quite hard towards the end of the session to get him to wake up, so we could get a few photos of those beautiful eyes, too!

Mark and Kassandra, I can’t thank you enough for the chance to document you three! Congratulations on your sweet boy.

I met Jordan and Monica in January as they were eagerly anticipating the arrival of their first born, a little boy named Jace. I always get excited to hear the news after a maternity session, and keep an eye on my inbox for the sweet¬†announcement of a new birth. I’ve been so enjoying all the newborn sessions I’ve been lucky enough to document lately! And Jace Harper at nine days old was no exception. Thank you to Jordan and Monica for so warmly welcoming me into your home to photograph some of your first memories as a family…

Meet sweet Emmy Claire. She was born into a family we are so grateful to call our friends, Dave and Alanna and their two boys Jackson and Silas. Two boys, and now a girl! You can imagine the excitement, the sweetness, the hair bows and the proud and protective older brothers. Everyone is just so smitten with this little girl and rightfully so! I had the best time documenting Emmy’s newborn goodness all snuggled up with her loving family at home…this stage is so fleeting, and beautiful and deserves to be photographed, so all those tiny features so perfect and new will always be remembered…

Congratulations, Peters family! xo
