Two (and a half) years ago, when I was in the midst of shooting weddings every weekend and working full time, Tara and Spencer asked me to take photos of their first born, Luke. It was truly my first home newborn session and I didn’t expect it to ignite such a passion for me and my photography trajectory. Fast forward to last week, they are now a family of four, in a new home with completely different jobs, living close to family and friends.
When I arrived last week it was a rainy and very dark, gloomy day which makes a home newborn session challenging. Tara was nervous days before the session about the rain, to which I assured her that it was one of the benefits of doing a home session. We settled in the nursery and Luke read books to his little brother and then played with his dad while I started snapping photos of their new chapter in life as a family of four. Ian was awake and taking it all in until the very end when he dozed off in big brother’s R2D2 beanbag.
The dark and stormy day couldn’t hide these bright smiles and sweet moments. I’ve loved watching Luke grow up, and now become a big brother, and I can’t thank Tara and Spencer enough for letting me capture these sweet moments for them, and igniting a new passion two years ago. Congratulations to your beautiful family!
