Love Multiplied | Photography by Samantha Kirk

“I really enjoyed shooting this newborn session in the setting of the home. There is so much more meaning to shoots like this because you can incorporate all the important details of your home and its so much more natural. In capturing a newborn session at home, its so true to how a mom and dad are, kissing, cuddling and just staring at your baby all day. I love that.  Nick and Crystal have been together for almost 8 years, and married for almost 3 years. They have always dreamed of having a little one that was a blend of both of them, and are totally in love with their little guy! I am extremely thrilled to share in part of their exciting moment by capturing a moment that will last a lifetime. I love that Crystal incorporated his name in a special swaddle that had his name all over it. She shares why that name means a lot for their family”  Samantha, Photographer

  “We named our son Peter because it is a Greek family tradition to name the first born son after the husband’s father. So, if we ever have a grandson, his name will have to be Nick (after my husband). So our family will always be a pattern of Peter, Nick, Peter, Nick… I had that “Peter” swaddle specially made to commemorate that.  Everyone always says, “they grow so fast!” So, we really wanted to capture our little guy as a newborn. We talked about his arrival so long, planned out his nursery, and wanted to do a shoot in our home because we had prepared for him for what seemed like ages…

“I always knew I wanted to be a mom, but didn’t know when it would happen. When I finally decided I was ready, I had to really think about what it would be like to no longer be a twosome. My husband and I have been together for almost 8 years, and could not wait to have a mini us join our family. Since our little one has arrived, I cannot stop staring at him and am amazed at how much more love I have for my husband. Baby Peter is the perfect addition to our family and we can’t wait for the adventures yet to come!” Crystal, Mother
