I couldn’t have planned a better re-entrance after maternity leave than this one. Barely out of my own newborn haze, I was admittedly kind of nervous, but excited to get back to shooting and to see this new mama again, since we used to teach at the same school a while back.
Dad greeted me in their gorgeous & eclectic home with a style anyone could be envious of- to which he credited all to his stylish wife. Mom didn’t look anything like how I’d felt in that first week postpartum. She was all glowy and calm and grounded, a far cry from my own hot mess category. Then, there was Little Miss ‘H’, in all of her beautiful newness … Oh! and Bear. We can’t forget Bear, the cutest and most loving family dog.
In the end, my nerves settled, I connected with my camera again after a long hiatus, and I documented this new family in the way I would have wanted (I’m still regretting I didn’t book a newborn session for us!).
I shot from the heart. I’ll let the images tell the rest.
Thank you for your bravery in opening up your home to me at such a vulnerable time and trusting me to document your story. ✨
My first session as a working mom is in the books. Cheers to new beginnings.

Oh my gosh. Find someone that looks at you the way he looks at her. 💗
