You may recognize this couple in today’s newborn lifestyle session. I photographed their engagement and their wedding last year and they’ve recently welcomed their sweet baby girl Claire into the world. Being able to photograph such important events gives me the chance to see how people interact with each other and gives me a little glimpse into their lives. I see the love in their eyes when they look at each other, when they are walking towards each other down the aisle to make a vow to spend the rest of their lives together, and as they stand at home, cradling their brand new baby in their arms. And being able to capture and freeze that little moment in time of what that love looks like is truly a humbling experience for me. This kind of experience is exactly why I love my job so much and work hard so hopefully they can always look back on these images and go right back to that moment and experience all those feelings again.
I met up with Madeline and Luke again at their beautiful home in Oakton, VA and got to meet their beautiful baby girl and their golden retriever puppy Molson. Little Claire Bear is already two weeks old and was such a little angel through her session. Molson and I instantly became best friends and I definitely whispered in his ear within the first 15 minutes of meeting him that no matter what, I will forever be his bestie. 😉 I wanted to share sweet Claire’s newborn photos with you guys today and I hope you enjoy!
