I’ve known Ethan’s mom since 3rd grade! I sound like a broken record, I know, but seriously, the best part about my job is getting to reconnect with old friends and capturing how their families have evolved and grown.
When my father had to undergo open heart surgery 4 weeks ago, I started to research a ton of info. I wanted to make sure he had the best team at hand. Well what would you know that my friend from elementary school would be the ICU nurse he would get right after surgery. She was seriously the nicest and had my mom, who was a nervous wreck, at ease. I am forever grateful to her and the entire team at the hospital for taking care of my father.
Ok, ok, let’s get back to Ethan. Just a few weeks after my dad had surgery, Ethan was born and isn’t he the CUTEST!?! This year I’ve made it a goal to really personalize all my sessions. I want to make sure that each and every session is a reflection of whomever I am photographing. With that in mind, I ask the parents for photos of the baby’s nursery, their living room or anything else they really like. When mommy sent me a photo of his nursery it was an adorable forest/adventure/explorer theme so I wanted to incorporate that into his session.
I had this little set up ready to go when he arrived and added some key pieces from his nursery such as his quilt and stuffed animals.
I had been dying to photograph a baby in this adorable hat from Nikki’s Crafts and when mommy said all of these were their favorite colors, I knew it was a match made in heaven!
This little Lion is also part of his room!
