Oh, another newborn session? Just twist my arm.
Seriously, it's been so amazing working with so many new additions to families this year, and this little lady was highly anticipated! Ashley had gotten in touch what seems like a lifetime ago about documenting the pregnancy + their little one's first year, and we had a fabulous maternity session on one of the last fall days of 2016. And! AND! She's here, sweet little Samantha Jolene and her tiny, cuddly self is finally here!
One of the reasons I love working with these guys is because they are constantly cracking each other (and me) up. They're so real with their relationship, and true to themselves, and it not only makes the sessions a beautiful breeze, but also a blast!
This little lady is such a cuddle bug, she just nestles right in and gets all sorts of cozy...
...but she's also inquisitive and curious. Indeed, she found her fingers and started chomping on those during our session while I was documenting all her adorable little details (like that fabulous mane that refuses to stand down).
We decided to take our session outside on the unseasonably sunny day we had, and were rewarded with a warm breeze and some blazing blue skies to shoot under.
(The commentary and reaction "Oh, I totally just take my baby out to a field on the reg. No, this is totally normal." - told you they're not afraid to keep it real.)
Congratulations on this beautiful little lady, Chris and Ashley, and for making parenting at least look breezy and easy! I'm so excited to be working with y'all to photograph Sammie Jo. -MEJ
