When I first started my photography journey I took every session possible, including newborns. I remember going into my first newborn session and walking out exhausted and thinking “thank God I didn’t break it.” Newborns terrified me! Fast forward five years and having my own little one, I walked into a newborn session for a past bride in August and FELL IN LOVE. I fell in love with every part of the experience of photographing someone else’s sweet little love. Was it a fluke? Maybe… So when my friend Allison of Allison Maxwell Photography asked me photograph her little girl and their family I jumped with joy. It is a HUGE honor when anyone asks you to document such special moments in their lives, but when another photographer asks you to document their own lives it is extra special. It’s that moment when you go “omg they like, they really really like!!” It’s the best feeling.
Eva is a special little girl. She’s loved beyond words by mom and dad. She’s the first. No one can replace your first. No one can steal away that moment where you hold your first child for the very first time, it’s a moment that cannot ever be put into words. Well you could, but words will never justify that moment. Eva, you’re so special, so loved, and are beautiful all the way down to your wrinkle toes. Congratulations again Allison and Jake!!
