Baby Samuel's arrival was highly anticipated - especially since I had first met these two lovebirds about two years before, photographed their wedding and an extended family session! I just KNEW Holly and Brian would be the very best parents to their little guy and was so grateful when they asked me to photograph the three of them together in their home a few weeks after Sam had arrived.
I love meeting the babies of my favorite couples and seeing their personalities come out, even in those first few weeks. Baby Sam has Holly's "don't want to miss a thing" attitude and Brian's kind eyes - and even though Sam was awake most of the night before his session, he never quite fell asleep! He didn't want to miss anything and even muscled his way out of the wraps and blankets we tried to put him in. His coos and smiles were breath-taking and I loved spending time in the morning light with these three :)
Newborn sessions are so fabulous at home - new parents are the most comfortable here, they have all the things they might need to soothe and feed and change baby within arm's reach. Plus, it's so great to have these images to look back on as baby grows. Your family may not live in this first home forever and these memories are ones you'll cherish forever!
Hugs and cuddles to baby Sam and his family - I can't wait to see him for his 6 month photos, right around Mother's Day :) *hint hint, Dad!* XOXO!
