Oh the endless joy these two will bring each other for years to come! Ann Marie reached out to let me know that she and her husband would be adopting a beautiful little girl and they wanted a newborn session to document this special time. Elsie Iris (Elsie, after Ann Marie’s grandmother and, Iris, as chosen by her birth mother) was the most darling and sweet baby to photograph. We cooed over her rolls and the adorable way she puckered her lips as she slept. Everyone’s journey to starting a family is different and in Ann Marie’s tender embrace you could just feel the joy she felt to finally have her baby girl in her arms.
Photographing a family and newborn session like this melt me every time. Because I know what these images mean to you- because babies don’t keep and these photos are a glimpse into a time that’s gone all too quickly. I’m so glad these photos will always be able to show the love between a mother and her tiny little love.
