I’ve never had an immediate passion for newborn photography. I’ve always thought of it to be posed, pressured, and expensive. Over the last few years, my personal compass has needed an adjustment when it comes to newborn photography. First, many of my closest friends have had children recently and second, there is a need to capture the sweet first few days as they pass so quickly with the rush of visitors, appointments, feedings, and (maybe) sleeping.
With one of my close friends having a happy and healthy baby boy a few weeks back, I couldn’t help but offer to take a few photos of his sweet little self for their memory books.
We approached the photos as an afternoon in his nursery and 100% up to his sleep & feeding schedule. Using simple blankets and using natural light, we managed to capture some very sweet faces. He is bright, beaming, and such a sweet little guy. I can’t wait to capture more as he grows.
I’ve been in a rainy rut the last few days- our house got “the bug” that has plagued so many people this winter. It was strong enough to knock this normally energetic spark plug right out. I have had many afternoons of cozy clothes and tea to try to kick it back into gear. Now that I’m on the up (I think), I’m taking the time to slow down a little in the mornings on the weekend. Today was french press coffee at the table and browsing cook books from my Grandma. I’ve decided on a bean soup of some sort. Time for some good, warm food, and the mellow show with dogs at my feet. The world will be out there for me to take on next week- I am calling it a home bound weekend this weekend.
J & M have been high school sweethearts turned long lasting love. I had the privilege to have taken their Senior Portraits in the past few years, and was thrilled to hear of their engagement.
We went to Tumwater Falls Park to take in the massive water show going on with several days of heavy rain. They were such good sports to play after the rain and amidst the loud waterfall below. Only the best to them for their wedding day and years together ahead.
