The first few weeks with a new baby are amazing and exhausting all at once. Everything is a “first” for baby…and often for you, too! You’re just getting acquainted with this brand-new person. I love newborn sessions because they are a little snapshot of this once-in-a-lifetime moment. Before you know it, that newborn is looking less “new” and growing into a bigger baby…toddler…preschooler…and it’s easy to forget those early, busy days.
I recently photographed a precious little girl–Mary Helen–and her beautiful parents in their Capitol Hill home together as a new family. I must say, I’m a bit partial to the name Mary Helen since it’s a combination of my name and my mom’s name. A good choice if I must say so myself!
Here are a few of my favorites from this sweet newborn session.
