I took a blogging hiatus for many months, so I have a backlog of old sessions that never got posted. I’ve been meaning to wade through them and share with you all, and when a window of time presented itself to me today I decided to get going! So, let’s take a trip back in time, shall we?
Wee Penelope Rose was born in late August, and was one of my favorite sessions ever. She lives in an adorable house filled with family history and memories of travels around the globe, has an incredibly beautiful mama and is utterly and completely surrounded by love. It’s normal, of course, for new families to take a bit of time to adjust. Theres a bit of awkwardness and a learning curve that comes with the territory (goodness knows I had many moments like that with both my girls). But some mothers are just so natural, grounded, and connected that you would swear they’ve been mothering for years already, and not just for a matter of days. That was Monique.
I adore being invited to peek into the lives of new families when they are still in the process of falling head over heels in love with one another. There’s something in the air in a household with a new baby that is so palpable that you can feel the love in the room, see it in their touch, hear it in their voices. After I leave a newborn session I usually ride on a baby-love-high all day long!
I’ve been having fun going back through my photo archives lately (more on that in a later post) and I decided to take a look back at this session, so these are mostly photos that Monique hasn’t even seen yet. Surprise Mama – I hope you like them!
