As we all know 2020 has left us in a brave new world. Having a baby in 2020 has flipped the script of what it looks like to have a newborn. When your best friend has a baby in 2020 you try to come up with creative solutions to simple get to see that new precious boy. Anna and I both wanted to find a way to make it work. She wanted me to take his photos just as I did for her other two and I desperately wanted to meet him, and see his family I adore. So we did just that, make it work. We meet half way, I wore a mask, I washed my hands no short of 20 times and refrain from holding him despite all my auntie instincts. It was worth every minute! We captured some precious images of Owen and my heart got a bit of fill from the family I love.
I was so happy when I got the call asking to photograph Maverick. He was the best little newborn model. He was awake just enough and in deep sleep when we needed him to be. He was content and sweet. We even got to move somethings around to document him being a Christmas baby. I love the smell, tininess, and how simply precious newborns are and Maverick was not exception!
Some babies I get really anxious to get my hands on and love on. Caden was one of those babies. I have been excited for his arrival just about from the day I heard he was growing in his mama’s tummy. I was anticipating the chance to see Haley, his big sister interact with him. I was looking forward to seeing his mama hold him in her arms and seeing the peace on her face knowing he truly was here safe and sound. He was worth the anticipation and excitement. He is simply precious and a sweet gift, one that I got the honor of capturing.
