I first met this couple at their maternity session last month. In addition to being absolutely gorgeous, both mom and dad are so down to Earth and were just such a pleasure to work with. They were one of those clients who I met for the first time and by the end of the session felt like I'd been photographing them for years. And when their precious baby girl arrived I was so excited to meet her and take their first portraits as a family.
Little miss "S" was just stunning. She arrived sound asleep and loved being snuggled in a swaddle wrap. But as soon as we got her naked, she wasn't happy. She was 5 days new and was also cluster feeding a bit. I actually think she just wanted mommy to snuggle her. So after snapping a few shots of her, we got her a quick snack and put her in mommy's arms and out she went. We got some of the most stunning shots of the three of them. You can just feel their connection. It was truly beautiful and they are my favorite shots of the session.
Following we got a few more with some Dallas Cowboys props mom and dad brought from home. What a blessing it was to capture these moments for this amazing new family. And for real... who looks this amazing 5 days after having a baby!
Here are a few of my favorites!
