It has been WAY too long since I have photographed a lifestyle newborn session and my goodness, have I missed it! I always feel so honored being able to capture a family’s first portraits with their baby. It’s so heartwarming knowing that I am essentially freezing time for these families, allowing them to go back and relive the memories of their newborn! We all know those bambinos grow up in just the blink of an eye!
As a gift for their baby shower, a couple of Elizabeth’s friend asked if they could purchase a gift certificate for a newborn session. I thought it was such a great idea, I of course agreed! I met Elizabeth, Ware, and their new daughter shortly after she was welcomed into the world! They named her Frances Grace, with Frances being a family name. She is so precious and was very insistent that she be awake, just so she did not miss a single thing! 🙂
These two should receive an award for Super Mom and Super Dad! In less than a month, Ware graduated from UVA, Frances Grace was born, they had a major plumbing problem, and moved! Despite a super crazy month and their home packed away in boxes for their anticipated move, they were so relaxed!
When I saw Frances’ adorable UVA bloomers, I could not help but be super impressed! They had not found out whether they were having a boy or girl, but as soon as a friend heard the news, she had ordered it. How perfect for a daughter of two Wahoos! 🙂
