Little baby "S" came into my Holyoke, MA studio and totally rocked his newborn session! I absolutely love meeting families that are 'friends of friends'. Word of mouth means so much to me and I have so many awesome clients who refer their friends when they first hear they are expecting. I got to have the family in and hear all about their birth story (my favorite part of this whole thing!), how the first few weeks of life has been adjusting to a new family member, and just watching as they ohhhh and ahhhhh over their sweet baby in all of the different set ups. I feel so fortunate to work with such loving clients who totally feel like friends after we meet for the first time. Are you expecting or know someone who is? Let's make a consultation! It's honestly never too soon.
Growing up in Holyoke, MA, you make friends that last a lifetime. I have been photographing these clients, but firstly friends, since their first son was born. I can't believe that their third baby is 1 year old! I had such a great time catching up and capturing this sweet little girl as I have done with her two siblings before her! What a treat being able to capture these little ones as they grow. I love that I can give these precious memories to each family I work with.
This adorable family came in and we had such a great session. Big sis wasn't sure she wanted to be in any photos, but just look at the fierce love in her eyes! This boy just slept and slept, he was so good to me. These kiddos are lucky enough that their parents planned a session and now have lasting memories for both children.
As a child my family NEVER had a professional photo session. Not that you have to! But we had not one family photo hanging in our home. When I look back, I think, aha! Maybe this is the whole reason I'm doing what I do! Maybe this is why I feel the need to shower my mama clients with compliments and love so she gets into that portrait! It's so very important, especially years down the road. These images will always bring them back to this very minute, the anticipation and overwhelming love they felt for their expanding family. Ahhhhh, just makes my heart feel all wide open. Loving how this gallery is making me feel today. :)
