I recently posted sweet Anne's maternity session, and I mentioned what a good thing it was that we took her bump photos when we did because baby Chance arrived much earlier than expected. Fortunately, Anne had a smooth delivery and everyone is healthy and happy! We held off on Chance's newborn photos for a while because they were living in the premie-baby-bubble for a while to keep out all the germs. I was chomping at the bit to get over there and capture all those sweet cuddles that were happening, and it was so worth the wait!
Baby Chance was quite the snuggle bug and wouldn't let his momma and daddy put him down for even just a second. That's 100% okay with me, because one of my favorite aspects of lifestyle newborn photography is capturing all those natural moments that happen in the first few weeks of life. Anne and Zack's beautiful historic home in the Crown Heights neighborhood was the best backdrop for photos, and I just love how their sun room reflects their personality so perfectly.
One of my favorite things about Chance's newborn session is how many sweet smiles he flashed at his momma and daddy. While those sleepy, closed-eye photos are wonderful, there is nothing more precious than a new baby gazing so adoringly at his parents. I.melt.every.time.
