Laura and Mike found out about our work after seeing Deesha and Dhaval’s sessions with us! Most recently, we photographed them with their 8 month old, Ahana, who is going to be Aniela’s best friend!
We love newborn sessions so much because, as most parents know, babies don’t keep. Before you know it, those first reflexes and instincts will be gone and it’s so amazing to be able to document that time in your lives.
We visited Laura, Mike, and Aniela in their home in Durham on a chilly Saturday morning. Apparently, they considered canceling their session because Aniela had been fussy all morning long! However, there’s no way we would have guessed! She slept soundly through her entire session in their arms, only mildly protesting when they changed her. Aniela’s baby shower included Laura’s friends and family decorating different bows for her, so we had to incorporate those into the session. Isn’t she just adorable? We cannot get over that bow!
One of our favorite parts of this session was when we photographed Aniela on the same baby blanket that Mike had when he was a baby. His mom saved it for them and we think it adds a special touch to their session. We also got to sneak outside for a few shots, but couldn’t stay out long as it was chilly that morning! But seeing Aniela in her sweet little onesie (with ears!) was totally worth it.
Laura and Mike, thank you so much for inviting us into your home to photograph you with your precious new addition. We hope you love these photos as much as we do and, as you look back on them, remember this special time in your lives. We can’t wait to watch Aniela grow up and know that she’s going to be surrounded by so much love and joy in your home!
