Introducing, baby Amaya. 2 weeks old. Little sister to proud big brother, Nicholas. Totally adored by mom & dad.
I spent a late Saturday afternoon hanging out in the comfort of this family’s home… and a little earlier in the month than expected. While Amaya was 2 weeks old when I first met her, her due date was just 2 days prior, so we definitely had some last-minute change of plans for this session. I could not have asked for a more perfect session though… The afternoon started with getting the house tour from her big brother & taking a bunch of silly-face photos while we waited for the baby to eat. Once it was baby Amaya’s turn to be in front of the camera, she was so perfectly content with whatever we did. As a lifestyle newborn photographer, I prefer babies to get comfortable themselves over forcing them into unnatural poses… and this beautiful little girl had no problem getting comfortable. She slept through almost our entire session, but just as I was getting ready to wrap up, she woke up stretching & smiling, giving me even more poses for the camera. I love shooting at people’s homes, because it not only allows me to capture the nursery & get everyone involved including the family dog… it also allows me to incorporate important items such as family heirlooms into the photos, which makes the final photos that much more special. I think my heart may have exploded multiple times throughout our afternoon, especially watching the way big brother was in such awe of his new sister… staring at her tiny little fingers & toes, so amazed & in love. Welcome to the world Amaya… so loved already & a beautiful addition to this beautiful family.
