Oversharing, as I tend to do. But this in home newborn session is extra special to me.
Allie and Abbey are family, and knowing their story from the very start made Theodore's birth that much more emotional for me.
Yes, I am a Hudson Valley and Catskill newborn photographer, but I love to travel!
I arrived to their home in North New Jersey on a beautiful Friday morning in September when Teddy was just two weeks old, which is the beauty of these sessions. We worked around their schedule, doctors appointments, just general new mom/old mom stuff on our own ends and had a relaxed and fun time. Abbey mentioned needing to give him a bath before my arrival, and I insisted they wait until I got there (and I'm so glad I did).
I often think "Would I want this photograph of my family? Would I want this documented." And in this case, the answer was yes yes yes!
Teddy is a pleasure and Abbey and Allie are amazing moms. They're navigating this new path with such ease and precision, you think they've been doing this for years.
Looking forward to integrating this handsome little guy into our family, spending time at the campsite, singing, dancing and celebrating with this blossoming family.
All my love you guys. I couldn't be happier for you, or more humbled to have been given this task.
