One of my favorite things about my job is watching my client’s family’s grow! I have been photographing this family for three years now and they just keep getting cuter!
When I first started photographing newborns there was something I felt that was missing, I realized that in order to photograph newborns the way I wanted I had to get rid of all the fluff, focus on the baby and family. That is what I focused on and now I love photographing newborns. I love doing a mix of a simple posed newborn session with a lifestyle session.
You know when you meet someone and instantly click, that is exactly what happened with this family. It was as if we had been friends for years, when literally we had only just met. It shouldn't have been surprise that I would like Sylvia's mommy since we have a very good mutual friend, but you never know when you meet your client for the first time in person. I was happy to hear that this family likes to take in strays, so I am hoping that means they may take me in too because I had the best time chatting and connecting with them.
I loved documenting this family for their little guy's first birthday. Lifestyle sessions are my favorite way to document a first birthday. Seeing them taking a bath in the sink, reaching out for you in their crib, crawling away, these are all such fleeting moments. Everyone says how time goes so fast and while you are in the thick of it, you don't get to cherish these moments and realize how much you will miss them. Soon they will no longer fit in the sink, they will climb out of their cribs, and they will be running.
