They say a baby changes everything. They are right! Super cute Daphne bounced into this world, and landed smack dab in the middle of the best family ever. Seriously, she hit the grandpa goldmine! But, this little dewdrop is just as sweet and adorable as they come. My own kids are totally smitten with her because, as they put it, “she’s always so happy!”
In-home newbies have become my honest to goodness favorite type of session over the past several years…for a couple of reasons. I love that dazed wonder that happens after a new person comes home. A healthy mix of fear and excitement all rolled into one. It is at turns heartwarming and hilarious. You can’t capture all of that mixed up emotion in a studio. It needs to be at home.
I also really love being able to capture the controlled chaos that inevitably seems to erupt with a new birth. There are diapers and wipes and dishes in the sink and toys on the floor and sometimes older siblings straining for attention too. Life is messy and wonderful. It’s great. It’s family. While those dishes or clutter certainly fade to the background, they are still an element of the story.
I think that’s what appeals to me most. When shooting an in-home newborn session, I get to tell a complete story…one filled with such enormous emotion and hope. It’s the best of beginnings.
So, baby Daphne is a doll. She is the center of her mama and daddy’s world. And, she has two fur sisters who are quietly inquisitive about this new little bundle. On a dark rainy day, I got to spend the morning with this entire crew. Filled with so many quiet loving moments and lots of laughter. And, yes, there were dishes in the sink.
