Welcome Baby Powell | An In-Home Newborn Session | Virginia

I believe this was the hardest blog post to-date for narrowing down images...and I'm so excited to share them! My aim during sessions is always to capture the the significance of the season in a timeless and artistic way and these film images did just that. What an honor to spend time in southwest Virginia with Ashley and Robert when baby Jack was only a few days old! Ashley is an extraordinary family and milestone photographer and seeing her and Robert thrive in parenthood was so special. And Elle Mae, their gorgeous Golden Retriever was SUCH a sweet girl with all the chaos of a new baby. You can tell they are going to be very good friends as Jack grows up. :)

Welcome Baby Schmidt!

The way Michelle looked on with such love when she held Caroline took me back to the first days with my own baby girl. A parent's love is something marvelous to behold and I was captivated through this whole session. The nursery was beautifully decorated with such tender care and love. Isn't it beautiful?! I'm not sure how she pulled it off but Michelle surprised Chris with the gender at birth all while secretly collecting and getting girl clothes and decorations ready. Clearly Chris and Michelle make an incredible parenting team and I know the days ahead with this family will be nothing short of wonderful!
