Where do I start… Sweet baby Memphis. I photographed him once before when he was in him mommy’s (Ericka’s) tummy and that was one of my favorite maternity sessions and here we are, blogging about Memphis, who goes down as one of my favorite of all time newborn sessions. He is just so precious, his skin was perfect, his hair so dark and thick, and he was soooo sleepy and perfect.
In the simple package, I focus on baby only and parents sit back and watch (for the most part) But, I love being able to incorporate parents hands into the poses to show how small their baby really is. It also shares a sense of protection and love by holding their babies. This particular session went so smoothly, I had time to play with some different ways to incorporate parents. I love the photo of Adrian (Dad) kissing and interacting with Memphis. Memphis is so wide awake looking right as his daddy! I love that moment that was captured. Memphis was so alert and aware of his surroundings and loved his dad. Their bond was so strong. Memphis would cry and Adrian would sing to him and dance him around and he would calm down. When they first came in, Adrian had Memphis’s favorite song playing on his phone, so precious. I loved being able to capture their sweet bond. As we were talking about how their birthing experience was Adrian said “when he came out, I felt like my whole life was meant for that moment.” (YOU GUYS!!!! I got choked up and nearly cried.) The sweetest thing ever and he was so passionate about how proud he was to be a dad. This is why I do what I do. THANK YOU Adrian and Ericka for trusting me to capture this irreplaceable time. They grow so fast.
