What a blessing to be able to take pictures of this tiny bundle of joy for our first photo session of the year! When Cora and Will told us back in November that they wanted us to photograph their baby once she was born, we were so excited. It was a pleasure to meet little Eleanor, and we tried our best to capture her beauty in these images. I do have to admit that newborn sessions are some of my favorite, especially if the baby is sleeping (which sometimes happens and other times doesn’t). Will & Cora were so accommodating, and it was great getting to know them better during the session too!
P.S. – my favorite part of the entire shoot can be seen in her “portrait” below (the fifth photo down); you can see my reflection and her mother’s reflection in Eleanor’s big round eyes. So awesome!
Last month, I had the awesome opportunity to do my first maternity photo shoot with Heather and Chris Coy. You can see the images from that blog post here. The great thing about maternity sessions is that shortly afterwards, new life is welcomed into the world, and sometimes I have the joy of taking pictures of the baby. That was the case with Joshua Stephen, who was only 12 days old when we took these pictures. What an adorable little guy! Chris and Heather both have plenty of aspirations for their son – one of the most notable is Chris’ desire for another baseball player in the family tree. Heather was happy getting him dressed up in a tie – have to prepare him for the corporate world in case the baseball thing doesn’t work out, right? We enjoyed every moment of both photo sessions with the Coys and can’t wait to get to know Joshua as he grows up!
