This session was special to me for many reasons -- the most obvious is that it was my very first newborn session! As you all know, I just opened Red's Photography and while I knew that I wanted to dabble in newborn photography, I hadn't envisioned starting in my first week. But, what a great and rewarding experience it was!
This awesome couple was such a joy to work with. They were calm, laid back, and just nice people to spend time with. You never would have guessed that they were new parents of twins. They handled their babies like they had been doing it for years. And, Jennifer was glowing and simply beautiful the whole time!
Tyler, I learned, tends to be the more laid back baby. At 3 1/2 weeks old, he was still a little man and so sweet to cuddle! I just happened to catch this little expression of his which his mom says is so him!
Keira, on the other hand, was the cheerleader! She might have been less than 7lbs but this little girl already had some pizzazz and personality that definitely stood out :)
I love this next photo. The story behind it is that those big, beautiful, genuine smiles from Paul and Jennifer were happening because one of their good friends was standing behind me acting crazy! In my opinion, there is nothing better than capturing something so real and so true even if it takes the help of a friend!
At the end of the day, I truly enjoyed this session. I got to cuddle with two beautiful babies, meet an awesome set of new parents, and capture some tender first moments for them. I'll leave you with this beautiful image...
