Baby J 4.20.15

The post really begins with mama. She and I have known each other for years but it was when I shot her wedding back in 2012 that we really became friends. She is truly the most positive person I know, just a wonderful human being and it gives me so much joy to see a person like her become a Mom. Last week I stopped over her house and took a few pregnancy shots of her and her fur babies!

Her sister is also a good friend of mine and was kind enough to give me the play by play of her labor and delivery. The baby’s gender was a total surprise to everyone but many of us were convinced it was a girl. Mom already had a fabulous mother’s intuition because she was certain it was a boy, and she was totally right! Baby J made his appearance last night!

First off, he has amazing hair. I am not surprised as Mom has some fabulous hair herself. He has that beautiful newborn glow and is the quietest little man I have encountered in awhile! He barely made a peep the entire shoot.

Taking photos of him, I was once again reminded how lucky I am to have repeat clients, even if they are friends. I shot their wedding and here I am, taking their very first family portraits! I mashed up some wedding images with today’s images and love the way it turned out.
