It was a warm summer morning, and as I sat in the local coffee shop, I very eager to meet my new clients. We had briefly spoken over the phone to discuss a newborn portrait session, and mom and dad were meeting me so that we could get to know each other, and to plan a special session for their upcoming arrival. As soon as they arrived, mom greeted me with a warm hug and she looked absolutely glowing! Dad was incredibly kind, and so excited to meet his new daughter. I could tell right away that they would be so fun and easy to work with.

A few weeks later, I received a message that Baby B had arrived! They even sent me a picture (I love that!) and she was absolutely precious! As soon as mom and dad were settled in at home, we scheduled their session. Baby B was about 7 days old for her first portrait session and was a champ!
I arrived at their Jacksonville home that morning and was greeted by dad. He was bursting with pride for his new baby girl, and was so excited to participate! He took me over to get a glimpse of her, and she was peacefully sleeping away. She had gorgeous hair and the cutest baby cheeks!
As I started to unload and set up, mom went ahead and fed Baby B while I got the room set up and warm. (A full tummy and a warm room make for a happy baby!) We started with family images of mom, dad, and baby together. Then each parent had a turn to pose with their daughter. Once we were finished with that part of the session, I told mom and dad they were free to sit and relax! From there, we finished up with the individual newborn portraits, and this sweet baby girl slept thru it all! She was amazing!
After our session, we all had the chance to meet up again so that mom and dad could see their portraits for the first time. They had the luxury of watching their slideshow from the comfort of their living room, and it was so much fun to be able to see their reactions and how much they loved their portraits. (Not to mention the fact that I got to see that sweet baby again too!) I cannot wait to photograph her again for her six month milestone session. Watching my clients grow and documenting these important milestones is such a reward!
