“Getting to capture new life is such a precious gift… And while Motherhood doesn’t always feel glamorous, there is something so beautiful about capturing the in between moments of feedings, diaper changes, and the pure exhaustion that comes from delivering and now taking care of this new little life outside the womb. So naturally, I was thrilled to get to capture first time parents, John and Adrianne with their one week old baby boy, Reid. Capturing babies within the first few days of life is such a special time. There’s a flood of emotions happening, and so I really love to hone in on that emotion and the intricate moments between the parents and baby, so the images feel lighthearted.
Adrianne and John were so welcoming and patient throughout our time together and there was such a warm and calming sense within their home. I feel that there is a lot of meaning to in home sessions, because I not only get to incorporate special details of the nursery and home, but it makes the the session feel really natural. There’s also something really special about capturing first time parents, because everything feels so new. I loved documenting all the little moments between John and Adrianne and the way they gazed at each other throughout the session…their connection with their sweet baby boy and the admiration they had for their new lives as parents I felt really shined through each image.” Erin, Photographer
