Nicole and I first met last year when she took a chance and emailed me out of the blue. She was looking for a collaborator in the wedding industry and am so thankful she reached out to me! Together, we put together the Blush & Blueberry style shoot last summer and are currently working on a BIG project together. It’s so nice to “do business” with a friend, especially one with whom you have a fair amount in common. We both love weddings, we both enjoy planning, we both have grand ideas and we both NOW have kiddos.
Nicole and Neil welcomed their first child, Hayes Brian, in late May. They then welcomed me into their home for his newborn session. It was easy photographing these three. They were calm, comfortable and cozy together…and I enjoyed capturing Nicole and Neil “in the raw”…in their new simple moments as mom and dad…
Nursery details. Nicole is a wonderful designer/decorator!
Love this moment. Just a family being a family…in the comfort of their own home…with their two fur friends, too!
One of my favorites from the session! Neil’s tattoo sportin’ their family name.
Spit rag and all…I told you they were “in the raw” for this session.
Another favorite for me!
Now for some mommy-son time to calm for some sleepy portraits…
Nicole taking a few minutes to be mommy.
LOVE these daddy-son portraits!!
Nicole and Neil will be building a new house soon, so they requested a few pictures in front of their first home as a family of three…
CONGRATS Nicole and Neil! You celebrated your first year of marriage and welcomed your first son! And now you’re going to be doing even more this next year. What an exciting and fulfilling adventure for you guys! Thanks for inviting me to help capture it all.
