Newborn home sessions are one of my favorite things to photograph. The transition of having a new baby in the house isn't easy- parents are often sleep deprived, covered in spit up, and anxious about getting everything "right." But despite all of this, capturing a new baby in his home is so beautiful. Everything is new. The dog is still getting used to his scent. The parents are learning what keeps him calm and how to swaddle. The baby is learning what this crazy thing called life is. And I love that I get to stand back and capture it.
When Jane and Phoebe contacted me about photographing their wedding at our alma mater, I was ecstatic. The little town of Walla Walla is a magical place, and photographing these two beautiful ladies here was a dream come true. I don't believe in soulmates, or there being that "one right person", but YOU GUYS- Jane and Phoebe are literally perfect for each other. They have a type of love is so honest, strong, and all encompassing. It was such a treat to be spend the weekend witnessing and I'm SO excited for their future together.
It started pouring about 5 minutes before this session started. And do you want to know the coolest part? These two didn't even notice. Two-year-old Rhys put on his rain boots and every rain puddle he walked past was better than the last. We had the park to ourselves and spent most of the photoshoot chasing geese, throwing leaves, jumping in puddles, and soaking up the incredibly beautiful bond that this Mother and son have for one another. Rain or shine, I'm so thankful for sessions like this one.
This little man LOVED being in front of the camera. It was so much fun watching how easy his mom and dad could make him laugh and golden hour at the arboretum made for a beautiful evening.
This session was so perfect. Mom had just gotten home from the hospital and big brother was so enamored with "his" new baby. I loved getting to captured Momma's love (and grandmas!) for these sweet kiddos.
