in baby

It was the middle of the pandemic, and my good friends, Sandra and Shane, had just had a beautiful baby boy. I had recently gotten permission from the county health department to once again go back into homes for photography sessions and was…well, I was stoked. I was thrilled to not only be back shooting again, but I couldn’t wait to meet their new little guy. I definitely lingered a little on the long side just to soak in all the goodness.

We planned ahead for pictures that would go well together for the nursery wall display and captured some stunning backlit images in front of their bright dining room curtains.

I’m so happy for this growing family and their little boy. Newborn sessions at home are one of my favorite things to photograph. Let me know if you’d like to book one soon.
