This blog post is a special one. For the past three years, my wonderful friend Jaime has captured our family before our big move, after our big move and when we welcomed our furry baby Penny. This time, it was my chance to photograph something special for her! Early last year, I got a text from Jaime telling me that she and her husband Ryan were having a baby, almost right after she found out! I was SO excited for her and keeping her secret was the hardest! Time flew by and it was such a joy watching the two of them announce it to the world, reveal baby’s gender and then joyfully welcome their sweet Annabelle into their family. Finally in September, days after Annabelle was born, I traveled to California for her newborn session.
Meeting Annabelle was so sweet for me. For months, I wondered who she would look like and what kind of personality she would have and then there she was- right in front of me! She was more beautiful and sweet than I could have imagined. Annabelle was a chunky newborn and boy do I love myself a chunky baby! She had the softest and sweetest baby smell; I snuggled her for a good part of the day. The best thing about Annabelle is that she was content. While she wasn’t sure about sleeping for me, she was happy to be there, wide-eyed, watching me try to soothe her to sleep, haha!
Thank you so much Jaime and Ryan for having me capture such a special part of your legacy. It is such an honor when another photographer and a friend asks me to take their baby’s first portraits!
