Squishy little newborn, tiny toes, and snuggles. It’s no wonder I look forward to newborn sessions. It’s always so fun for me to see parents in that love-drunk phase, and even better if I can sneak in some newborn snuggles 😉

One of the things I love about working with families throughout their pregnancy (maternity, birth, newborn), is the friendships I am able to build. When I showed up to this newborn session, I couldn’t wait to see their newest addition and give them a congratulatory hug.

Grace quickly warmed up to me, remembering our last session together, and was the best helper throughout the process. I gave her little tasks as I shot, unloaded and reloaded film. It got to the point where she would hear my film wind back up and she would go to grab another roll for me or a label. I think I need to hire her for all of my shoots! 😉

I’m sad that this amazing family has since moved out of state (I’ll miss them), but I’m happy that they are close to family as they raise their darling girls!

Here are a few of my favorites from our day spent together…

These images immediately draw me back to that crisp, sunny morning spent adventuring through the Arroyo Seco Trail (I can practically hear Grace’s little giggles). Such an exciting moment in time for this family as they were preparing to welcome baby girl #2. Who, is just as darling as her big sister…I’ll be sure to share her newborn session soon 🙂

Here are a handful of images from their maternity session…

“The whole point of woman-centered birth is the knowledge that a woman is the birth power source. She may need, and deserve, help, but in essence, she always had, currently has, and will have the power.”

– Heather McCue

This sweet little girl is going to be one next month, and I can hardly believe it. I was so happy to be there for this mama as her doula and birth photographer. And can we take a moment to appreciate how supportive and encouraging her husband was??

Here’s a look back to Frankie’s birth story…
