Janet & JD are a calm, relaxed couple & when you’re getting ready for newborn baby photos, this isn’t always the case. As the door opened & Janet said ‘hello’ I was greeted by…silence, beautiful light & a very cute 2 year old. I truly never know what I am walking into when I shoot at people’s homes – it’s part of the reason I love it. I can embrace the chaos as well as the calm. Elena, being 2, played shy for a few minutes & then was herself – true to most red heads she had spunk, a bit of mischievousness & knew what she wanted & wasn’t afraid to let you know. Having a new little brother was a big adjustment for her (as with any sibling) & her interest in James was sporatic – cheerios & raisins were way more exciting – LOL.
James decided day 13 in this world was the day he wanted to be awake. Getting photos where his eyes were closed took some patience, but he was a super chilled baby. He let us move & swaddle him but really, he just wanted snuggles. Janet & JD like simplicity – their focus is on being in the moment. I love that & I think it translates into the images. Enjoy the photos guys & congrats on the newest member to your beautiful family.
