Category Archives: Newborn Photography
You forget how tiny they are. Their little bodies melt into you. As I walked in the door, daddy handed baby to me. “Do you want to hold him?” Oh, the luxury of holding a newborn in my arms. I just love how it feels. I told them I can appreciate so much more the sweetness of this stage when it’s not my baby. I was too sleep deprived and anxious the first time around. I think that’s why it’s become easy for me to comfort newborns…. I have the skills left over from having my own, but the ones I’m soothing now I haven’t used all my energy on. I’m not trying to balance equal attention between kids, plus a photography job, and mommy work on top of it all. So, I have so much patience and time to relish in the moment. I love that. It’s amazing. Hats off to this mama who is gracefully learning how to juggle two babes now. She is a light and a love. She truly appreciates the art of photography, and after receiving her images wrote to me saying:
“Cassie, I am speechless over these pictures! I literally have tears in my eyes. You are such a talent and I’m beyond grateful to have found you. I love them, they mean the world to me.”
The peacefulness in the home really shows for me in these photos. I fell in love with the bright light and the character of their home immediately. All the little detail inside reminded me of the home I grew up in in Massachusetts. Mom and Dad were so calm as new parents–I was in awe of them. I love that smile on mama. So in love already. I shot a combination of film and digital images. So glad to meet this super sweet family. I’m excited to share these with them. xo
These two. I just had to say something about this session. I love them. I was there to document when they got married, got a new home, had an anniversary, got pregnant, and had their first baby. Oh my, I feel so much gratitude. They are so in love, and truly bring out the best in each other. Meeting what they created, little Ford, was a blessing. He’s a love. And his mama has some great decorating skills, I must say, but my favorite piece in the nursery was the Wild Things portrait. Drew sketched that as a child on the back of his bedroom door. That’s his bedroom door on the wall. How special and what a talented kid..
Thanks for peeking. xo
