When Hannah contacted me to discuss her upcoming birth and newborn pictures I had already decided I wouldn’t be photographing anymore births; well as you can see by these images I caved. Hannah and I hit it off right away and spent our coffee date discussing photography with a little of everything else. I am always so amazed and blessed by the many people that this business has brought to my life. There was some worry that dad might not be local when it was birth time so how could I not be there to capture this amazing time for this wonderful growing family.
This particular birth story started in an operating room instead of the delivery room but what an awesome opportunity for a photographer to be invited into the OR. I walked in the room as momma was walking away to the OR to meet dad for the first time. We became fast friends as we were about to experience the amazing arrival of their baby girl. In true southern girl fashion Hannah wanted her hair to be perfect for pictures so her anesthesiologist made sure to fix her hair for the camera 🙂
I was able to spend a few minutes after baby S arrived with the family, capturing their first moments as three and what a pleasure to watch two people fall in love with their new baby girl and each other all over again.
On day 4 I got to spend the day with baby S, her momma, and grandma capturing some great images for her newborn session. We used elements of her daddy’s career, family jewelry and other great colors, fabrics and textures to create a series of images that I know they will cherish forever.
Thank you Key family for allowing me to be a part of our family’s story. I’m so excited for October and apparently for Baby S’s prom 😉
