What is it about bringing home that first baby? I remember between the sleep deprivation and diapers, a feeling of togetherness with my husband we had never experienced before. It brought us closer in a way that's hard to express. When I meet couples, no matter how many children they have, I love seeing their connection. It can be easy to let this life adjustment rock your family, but clinging to one another through the chaos - that is an incredible blessing!
It was a rainy and overcast morning in Virginia Beach, but you would never guess from these cozy images! And this sweet baby boy was an absolute joy. He did nothing but smile and coo the ENTIRE time. Literally a dream come true for this photographer. And so alert, he tracked my every move. I know sleeping images are gorgeous as well - but I love awake babies. I mean, just check out this sweetness...
He grinned at his Dad like they were already in on a secret joke together, hahaha!
The nursery was so lovingly styled and decorated. I love when parents are able to 'set the stage' for babies arrival. Looking back at these pictures, he will know how deeply he was loved before he even arrived!
I have a soft spot in my heart for these lifestyle newborn sessions. If you are expecting or know a soon-to-be-Momma - drop me a note! I'd love to capture this time for your growing family.
