I’m so excited to finally be sharing Miss M’s fresh 48 session! Fresh and new. And oh so tiny and perfect. A dark haired beauty — such a precious gift for such a wonderful family.
I’ve spoken before about how babies are only this fresh and new for a short time. I remember staring at my own babies for hours on end during those first few days — watching them sleep, counting their little toes, watching their tiny fingers curl around mine, and simply breathing in their presence. There’s nothing quite like it. Which is why I absolutely love photographing newborns during their first two days. I want to be able to bring parents back to this sense of awe and wonder with my photographs — how it felt to finally meet their little miracle after months of waiting, marveling at this creation of theirs… Pure and fresh. Each photo is like a mini time machine, taking you back to visit these memories.
As I mentioned when sharing M’s birth session, we’ll be seeing more of her and her family soon. I am honored to have captured so many memories for this family of Baby M’s story – starting with her mama’s maternity session and continuing on through to her newborn session which took place a few days after this. I can’t wait to see how she grows over this year.
Here are some highlights from Miss M’s first 48 session. Enjoy!
