I’ve been shooting this family since December, when they first announced their pregnancy in their Christmas cards! Recently, I also shot Sabrina’s maternity session, which was one of my favorites to date! You can see her maternity session here. Now I have had the honor of capturing their first family portraits. I was told that little Jack usually sleeps pretty well in the morning, so I made sure to be there bright and early. But newborns, although tiny and precious, ALWAYS have a big mind of their own. Jack wanted to stay awake where the action was! I happen to be a “when life gives you lemons” kind of person, so we took the opportunity to shoot some lifestyle portraits while Jack was awake. I actually prefer this to posing newborns. I get so excited to capture the real emotion and love that comes with bringing home a new baby…especially a first baby. Here are some of my favorites from this lifestyle session. Welcome home little Jack! It was so nice to finally meet you!
