I feel that the families I work with time and time again, each session becomes even more magical than the last somehow.. or so was the thought I kept reflecting on as I edited this session. I’ve been working with this family now since baby William was but a dream in all of our minds at his mom’s pregnancy session and have visited him once again every 3 months since (birth, newborn & 3 months). This time I returned to see them and capture Will now that it’s Spring and he’s 6 months old and can practically sit up all on his own (I’m happy to report that not one hair has grown on his head since then – seriously what is sweeter than an adorable, big blue-eyed bald baby?). We went outside the city a little to enjoy some fresh air and glades of daffodils… we read books together and played peek-a-boo.. we laughed, we cried .. we had a really great time
And when the sun set and our play date was over, I returned a few days later to hang out at home and capture all those tiny baby bits of his that are growing so fast.
Thanks so much again Will and your family for letting me in to capture your most special moments, and I can’t wait to see you again for summer at 9 months! XO
PS William’s grandma made the adooorable green sweater he’s seen wearing in this session and the beautiful blue quilt (actually she makes all of my quilts!). She is soo so talented and I highly recommend having her make either a keepsake quilt for your little one (she also makes smaller ones that hang up in nurseries as a piece of artwork) or even she makes fabulous knitted custom outfits for babies that photograph really beautifully. And with that, I’m thinking I may have to do a little blog on her and her work soon.. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you want me to send you some of her cards!
