Because I got to document the pregnancy and first moments of Zara's life after her birth, it was especially lovely to be invited back six weeks or so later for newborn portraits. Typically, newborn photos are taken within the first week, but I loved working with this squishy and expressive little girl and her parents. So much love. So much sweetness. So much hair, haha.


Due to a sick older brother and having to reschedule her pregnancy intimates, we ended up having this portrait session when I was already on-call for the birth of the wee one inside Tasha's belly AND she was already past her due date. I just love how calm and at peace she seemed in spite of everything, including Micah and River, her two little boys full of energy bouncing all around. This just goes to show that it is never really too late to book a maternity session and at the very least, you'll get an hour or two of quiet respite from daily life while I take photos of you alone. This family is the definition of adorable. Love them.
