Lifestyle newborn sessions are so freakin’ cool. They’re authentic, and a glimpse inside of a few hours of a ‘normal’ day. The hectic moments, the quiet moments. Those little moments you can think about and just smell that sweet newborn head all over again. It also gives parents a bit of flexibility – not needing to fit into that short window of 2 weeks or newer for newborn studio photos, while still giving you those moments that are oh so fleeting.
This family has experienced SO many emotions this month. On New Year’s Day, Daniel’s mother was tragically taken from us, and this sweet little boy was born the day after her funeral. And while there are many sad tears – many hard days of trying to understand – here is this perfect little boy in their arms. A perfect little boy who has an amazing guardian angel watching out for him. A perfect little boy giving reassurance that everything is going to be okay. So in the face of heart ache, he carries part of her name to remind them that she will always be around. It genuinely is a full circle of life – celebrating the new, and celebrating the life they will always remember.
So here’s to life, love and family. To hugs, holidays and hope.
