I first met this awesome couple back in the start of the winter season to capture their maternity photos together. Laura was beaming a new motherhood glow, and I could easily sense all of their excitement and anticipation for February when they were expecting a precious baby girl.
I was so pleased to hear everything went as planned, and baby girl made her appearance to the world ON her due date! 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 Charlotte did not want to miss the party.
She’s so gorgeous and 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.
