I first met this lovely couple for their engagement session Fall of 2012. Their fur baby was their pride and joy at the time, so much so that I knew they would someday make doting parents.
I was blessed to be a part of Katy and Kaleb’s wedding day just one year ago, and beamed in excitement when Katy reached out nearly a year later asking for maternity and newborn photos of their growing family. As per the usual newborn sessions with all hopes of a calm, sleepy baby for photos, I prepped them on some simple tips to prepare for their session. Things like: keep her awake and stimulated an hour to two hours before I am to arrive, have her well fed, the room nice and warm, etc. Well they followed all of those guidelines and more and we had our hopes high that she would sleep well at least a good handful of sleepy newborn photos. Well Grace did not want to miss the party.
She is such a sweet baby, was so alert, and even-tempered – she seemed to thoroughly enjoy my camera and her parents doting on her for an hour anyhow. Being a lover of including a good mix of lifestyle photography with every one of my sessions, I find it even more enjoyable as a newborn photographer in Fort Collins. Here you are, with this precious new life among you, your family is growing, your life has completely changed, and this moment will so quickly slip by. How important it is to capture this chapter in all of its blissful glory, with everyone together – no matter how you feel or feel that you look. I’m so honored to capture lifestyle newborn photography for families to remember this short and sweet stage.
