It’s always such an honor when people I know approach me to photograph them and their little ones. This session was no exception. I met Kayla on the first day of kindergarten, and we were quickly best friends. This lasted through elementary school. We saw each other through dance recitals, cheerleading, and summers spent exploring the outdoors from sunrise to sundown. Our different interests and new friends in high school drew us slowly away from each other, but we shared the same first job as teenagers, and to this day we’ve always kept in touch. When she reached out to me over Facebook about capturing her little guy’s newborn photos, I couldn’t have been more excited to see her and play a small part in this new stage of her life.
When I say this baby was peaceful, I mean this baby was PEACEFUL. It’s extremely rare for a newborn baby to not cry once during a newborn session. In the two hours I spent with Grayson, he cried ONCE - and he only cried then because he was having his diaper changed. This boy is zen.
This nursery though! Just wow.
Those sweet little baby details get me EVERY. TIME. And newborns change SO fast. I’m so glad I was able to photograph this little one just a few days after he was born.
We ended the session with one of the most meaningful photos I’ve ever taken. I’m so happy for this little family for the birth of their sweet rainbow baby, Grayson.
