I was really looking forward to this newborn session! These are my good friends, some of the first friends I made here in Petaluma, and I was so excited for them as they welcomed a perfect little boy into their lives. The road to Parenthood isn't always easy. Getting and staying pregnant can be hard, and for these two it was a bit of a journey. But after a few years, with a lot of faith and some great doctors, they had a beautiful baby boy, Ewan! He truly is their Rainbow Baby.
With every newborn session, I try to capture the essence of the family. I love love love the image above, where Stephanie is holding sweet Ewan and Kevin is leaning in with his cup of tea. I mean, a newborn baby and donuts, what could be better?! This image to me really captures the real moments in a family.
Ewan was about a week old for our session and you could tell that he is a total cuddle bunny! He definitely knew when his mommy wasn't around, and was a little hard to settle when he was on his own. But that is okay, because we photographed some really sweet moments with Ewan getting cuddles from his mom and dad.
I love photographing families in their home, where the heart of the family is! If you are interested in booking a lifestyle newborn session, send a message to firstname.lastname@example.org. I have a great Welcome packet that I'll send you - it details what to expect, how to prepare, newborn packages, etc. I'm currently booking Fall and Winter babies, but if you have a summer baby, send me a message and hopefully I can get you booked!
