I would sit for hours and hours with new families if I could. If I didn’t know myself that sometimes visitors are welcome but exhausting in those first few days postpartum, particularly with a firstborn. I tread lightly as their photographer, giving space and capturing them. It is nothing short of an honor to visit a new family, days after the birth. I am falling more and more in love with this special sort of session.
Natalie and Phil were completely relaxed with Henry. Natalie shared stories of nursing that had me entirely impressed. Phil marveled, as any father should. Henry, the strongest newborn I’ve seen to date, wasn’t much for the molding “stick em in a basket” type shoot, which is fine by me. His wonderful personality is very much present in his second official photo shoot (second to his birth!).
