I’d like you to meet Baby Charlotte. She is the third little nugget to join Estevan and Emily’s precious family! I had the privilege of photographing Charlotte’s older brother and sister when they first entered the world as well. I was so excited to document Charlotte’s first day of life in the hospital. Not even 24 hours old and yet holding this amazing new life is in my arms is always so emotional… such a miracle!
Charlotte’s newborn session was taken in the comfort of their home. When there are young siblings involved, I always prefer photographing in my client’s home as it provides a comfortable space for everyone to relax and just be them. It also allows me to truly create “lifestyle” photographs, which I love!
We found the best light in little Olivia’s adorable bedroom. The kids loved piling on the bed with mom and dad. Lots of giggles, lots of tickles! The dogs even made sure they were included in a few shots!
Emily’s mom, Judy, came to help wrangle the kids for the session so of course, I wanted to include her playing with the kids. I’ve known Judy for over 30 years and have had the privilege of watching her two beautiful daughters grow up. Both Judy and her husband, Paul, have an incredibly deep and connected relationship with all of their children and grandchildren. The final pictures in this post are taken with two special gifts from her grandparents. The dress on the bunny was made by Judy and Wilbur the pig was given to her by her Grandpa! (Get it? Charlotte and Wilbur!!)
I know committing finances to newborn and family photography is a huge investment and one I don’t take lightly. But I know for Estevan and Emily, they knew Baby Charlotte was going to be their last child and they wanted to document and capture all the wonder and joy of this beautiful gift called life. I encourage you to not let time pass you by. Feel free to contact me to help you capture your most treasured moments!
