I started photographing baby Jonah while he was still snuggled up in his Momma’s tummy! It was below zero the day of our maternity session and Mom and Dad were troopers, hanging out in the arctic while I did my thing. We cut our session a bit short and decided to finish at a later date with an indoor shoot. Baby Jonah had other plans and made his arrival 6 weeks early surprising everyone! Luckily both Momma and baby were happy and healthy, and after a short stay in the NICU, Jonah got to come home.
It is no secret that lifestyle session are my absolute favorite, and this one made me love them even more. I arrived to Eilish and Joshuas home right after what would have been their little guy’s due date. They had the most adorable apartment, with tapestries hung on the walls, and a kitty that greeted me at the door. I got to meet the boy of the hour, and we laughed as we tried to get him dressed and realized that the newborn clothes weren’t going to last much longer!
This little guy may have been small, but he was SO full of personality! He was wide eyed during the session, and we spent time admiring his amazing hair while he snuggled up with his parents. Sometimes you meet a family and you can just see that they work so effortlessly together. Between the two adorable parents, perfect baby, and their feisty older child (the cat), my heart could have exploded with love. Congrats to Eilish and Joshua, and welcome to the world baby Jonah!
