Christine + John were referred to me by longtime Expressions clients Ashley + Brian. I’m so glad I was able to capture 15 day old, baby girl Charlotte and her sweet features for these two.
From Christine: Charlotte was a week late and I had to be induced. She was born wide awake and alert with big bright eyes looking right at Mommy. Bringing her home from the hospital was terrifying as first time parents. We had no idea what to do! Thankfully, we had my mom to help us through the first night.
Each newborn session I shoot is special to me. No matter how many newborns I see, I’m in total awe of how delicate they are. They are so vulnerable to the world and dependent on others for every need. Watching them figure out how to move their fingers, not even being able to hold their heads up and learning how each part of their body works never ceases to amaze me. It’s hard to imagine myself during that phase of life. I love soaking up every minute I’m around them.
Baby Charlotte was no different. With her dark hair and big eyes, she was a joy to shoot. I could have stayed their all day if Christine + John would have let me! Christine jokes that Charlotte is hungry non-stop but feeding breaks gave me ample time to focus on capturing the details of Charlotte’s nursery. Christine + John put a lot of time and thought into decorating Charlotte’s simple, clean and modern room. I know it’s going to be such a comforting and relaxing place for her to grow.
Christine + John, thank you for welcoming me into your home and letting me spend the afternoon with your beautiful baby girl. I had such a wonderful time. It truly felt like we were old friends and I can’t wait to see Charlotte grow.
