Photographing newborns is always such a sweet and exciting experience for me. I get to chat with folks that are experiencing parenthood for the first time, and it brings back all the memories for me. It’s fun to hear from each person how parenthood looks on one another, how this new little being is shaping them and their life. This session was just an absolute dream. I mean have you seen that rug down there?! There were so many neat details that stood out for me during this session. I had noticed the cradle on a venture to grab one of my lenses, and had asked about whether we could use it in the some of the shots. They began telling me how the cradle was actually passed down and used from her grandmother to her mother, and ultimately to her. How cool is that?! Then, a little while later the dad, his MIL, and I were chatting and he brought up one of the framed artworks on the wall. He was explaining how his grandmother would hand-dye the wool and make rugs with beautiful art. The framed whale art was a section of the rug COMPLETELY hand-made by his grandmother. I just love all the personalized details. I hope you enjoy this session as much as I did.
