in baby

Things are slowly returning to normal and places are opening up again, but this shoot was taken a year ago and it had been 2 months of zero photo-shoots. It broke my heart when this family booked a newborn session and we weren’t allowed to get together in person. But I had a bright idea! I called them on video chat and made sure they had another phone handy. Dad gave me a tour of their home and we picked the rooms with the best light. Then, I helped direct them on what to do and how to angle their camera phone while they took pictures. Dad would point the video feed at the screen of their other phone so I could see it. Together, we took pictures. Even though these weren’t taken with my professional camera, this family will still have a beautiful reminder of their sweet baby girl at 10 days old.

Just a reminder that we can do incredible things if we have enough hope (and teamwork)!

Let’s make more memories this year.
