Heartstrings

Lately I've wanted to take newborn sessions in a new direction and involve the parents much more than before. And I've LOVED the results! I want parents to have the best of both worlds - lifestyle family photos and individual photos of their newborn. Photos of newborns are so wonderful but there's just something about a lifestyle photo of mom, dad, and baby that just grabs my heartstrings. I know the last thing some mothers want to do is be in front of a camera after giving birth but I really don't think it would be regrettable in the end when you can go back and look at precious photos of you and your fresh baby sharing a moment together. Warning: These photos involve a beautiful mother (with gorgeous hair I might add) who just gave birth but looks like she never did. Try not to hate her too much - she can't help it! ;)

The sweet baby...
