I had the privilege of photographing Toni and Colby's maternity session a couple of months ago, and then got to help them document their tiny baby only a few days old. I was so excited to meet Jackson Bennett, and he was the perfect little sleepy model the entire session. Not good for the baby fever! ;)
Toni and Colby are so in love with their sweet baby boy. It's such a joy to get to see couples become parents for the first time. I didn't now Toni and Colby before I photographed their maternity session, but I have loved getting to know them. They're such a sweet couple, so fun to work with, and are amazing parents to baby Bennett!
I always try to capture the details of tiny newborns. It's those little features that change so very quickly, and they're so important to remember and cherish. I love the quote, "In photographs, babies stay babies forever", because they certainly do grow up much too quickly!
One of the reasons I love lifestyle photography, is because I love to capture the real. I don't feel like a newborn session is complete without a crying photo!! I mean, let's be real, having a newborn is a huge blessing... it's amazing, wonderful, and one of the most rewarding experiences a parent will ever have. But, it's also HARD. It's demanding and tiring, and it challenges us to our very core! Otherwise, it wouldn't be so rewarding!
I love the photos above of what a mama's comforting love can do! :)
Toni and Colby,
You guys are doing an AMAZING job! Thank you so much for trusting me to document these precious moments in your lives. I am honored to have gotten to know you all!
