Meet Emerson. This lil beauty with the cutest, chubbiest feet ever, is the third child to one of my college roommates, Janine. I have had the distinct honor of photographing each of her children as newborns! As I began planning for Emerson’s session, I couldn’t help but think back to her oldest sibling, Olivia’s newborn session. Olivia was the third newborn I ever photographed, and the first newborn girl. When I was just starting out, I did newborn sessions in my client’s homes. It really feels like a lifetime ago. When Janine had their second child, Jaxson, I had switched to an in-home studio which was in an upstairs spare bedroom in our new home. It was a tight space, but it got the job done. Fast forward to miss Emerson, and we’re in the newborn studio located in my basement. It’s a great space that we had built specifically for this purpose. The family has been with me through so many changes! I’m now a studio-light only photographer as there is very minimal natural light in the space. And I’ve had a change in branding and styling since their son’s session as well. Janine and Lee- thank you, thank you, thank you! Thank you for entrusting with me not just one, but all three of your newborns! And thank you for choosing me each time regardless of the various changes I’ve made. 🙂 I have loved photographing your children and looking back at each of their sessions for the similarities and the differences between them. Each of them are absolutely adorable. Congratulations again!
This first photo was a special request from Mom and all props were supplied by her. 🙂
