My first session back from maternity leave. I have to admit, it was hard to leave my little guy. But as soon as I got there and saw beautiful, sweet Evelyn I was ready to go. Julia was my very first client when I started this business last year. Her first child, Isaac, was turning one and she wanted pictures for his birthday. (You can see that post here.) So when I made the decision that I wanted to move more in the direction of lifestyle newborn sessions, she was the first person I contacted to see if she was interested. I love being able to document families as they grow!
After taking some time off, I was nervous I would be a little rusty and not get the results I wanted. I was pleasantly surprised to find not only that it went well, but this is probably one of my favorite newborn sessions to date. This family is adorable, and so fun to work with. And I just love the lifestyle approach to newborns. The connection between the family, the intimacy of being at home, and the genuine emotion just radiating from everyone so in love with this new little person.
So without further adieu, here is baby Evelyn, just 11 days old. I love her big, beautiful eyes and all that dark hair!
And of course, new big brother, Isaac. I showed him my speedlight early on, and while at first he was a little scared of it, he soon became excited by it. After every picture he would yell out, “That’s a bright light!” which is how I ended up getting this adorable picture of him.
And I couldn’t leave out Aaron and Evelyn. Such a proud Daddy!
And lots more family pictures. I love the beautiful light in this nursery!
