I have been shooting a lot of newborn sessions lately and I am loving the sweetness and the detail that come with these types of portraits. Newborns allow me to take my time and focus on those precious details with my macro lens and really capture the wonderful emotions that come with a new life. However, we always have a few good outtakes between capturing the photos that make your heart swoon, because lets be honest, newborns can definitely be a challenge! But when the mom and I finally get the baby back to sleep and the stars aline, a little piece of heaven is captured and it is so rewarding. It is always such an honor to be the first professional to capture the little one's portraits and my hope is that my photographs will be treasured for years to come. I have loved watching my newborn clients grow up over the years and I look forward to taking this little girl's photos throughout the first year of her life. Below are a few favorites from sweet Tessa's newborn session a couple weeks ago. I just can't get over her lashes in the first shot below. So pretty! Hope you enjoy.
