Aspyn’s mom first contacted me when she was pregnant with her. She was initially looking for a maternity session and after a detailed phone consultation, I knew she was going to be a perfect fit for what I offer. Kasi brought her beautiful family to her maternity session, it was such a joy meeting everyone and fitting in some family photos before focusing on photos of just Kasi and her perfect belly.
We got those maternity photos done in the nick of time because Aspyn was born only a few days later! I couldn’t wait to meet her and create art for her walls. She came into my studio as a sweet little scrunchy bundle. Kasi and I took time admiring Aspyn’s little features and giggling over her teeny feet and smiles.
Newborn sessions are long, but so worth the time. Capturing every detail and the unbreakable bond between mother and child are some of my most rewarding experiences as a photographer. Aspyn will never be this little again, and now Kasi will forever have these moments frozen in time. When Apsyn is 10, Kasi will be able to show her how she fit so perfectly between her shoulder and her neck. Aspyn will see these photos and understand how tenderly her mother loved her from the very beginning. She’ll learn about the meaning of “rainbow baby.” She was so desperately wanted, so anxiously awaited, she’ll see all of this in this priceless memories. When Aspyn becomes a mother herself, she’ll experience the joy that shines through her mother’s eyes, she’ll know then just how much her mother loves her.
Aspyn slept through most of her session. She snuggled so perfectly into every set, she slept deeply and soundly. Her nursery is decorated in a woodland theme, so we made sure to include a set with her dressed as a baby deer. Kasi wanted as much pink as she could get – this was her first girl after having three boys. The session was full of lace, flowers, girly outfits and a colorful butterfly. There are no words to express just how much I enjoyed this session. I really enjoy photographing newborns – it was my own newborn that got me interested in photography almost 7 years ago. Since I’m done having babies, newborn sessions are extra special to me because I get my fill of newborn snuggles that I no longer have in my every day life.
Aspyn’s mom bought a gorgeous custom designed heirloom album from her session. With a rose gold leather cover, and a photo of Aspyn on front, I know that album will be enjoyed for all of Aspyn’s life. Those pages will be flipped through a thousand times, the photos will be adored by her, her kids, her grandkids… Aspyn, may you grow up strong and gentle. May your tiny heart one day hold all of the love in the world for all of those around you. May your eyes always appreciate the beauty all around and may your feet experience beaches, mountains and rivers.
