Repeat clients are my favorite to work with. And not just because of the obvious. Sure, I love being hired over and over by great clients. But my favorite part is getting the chance to see them move through different life stages… and capture it all on camera. ((Love. My. Job.)) I got to work with this sweet couple last year when I shot their engagement session. The only bummer (for me) was that they had a destination wedding, so I wasn’t able to photograph their wedding. However, all of that was forgotten when I was asked to take these Irvine newborn photos of their new addition, Baby Scotty.
Seeing a couple go from happily engaged to over-the-moon happy new parents is ahhh-mazing. Seriously. Love just seeps out of their pores. That’s totally normal when a new baby is around, right? Maybe it’s the pregnancy hormones, but I know this baby made me want to melt. Totally adorable.

I love newborn sessions because they always take place in the clients home. Home is where people are most comfortable and that translates into beautiful pictures. This family has such a calm, cozy home. I wanted to kick off my shoes, drink a cup of tea and talk all things baby with them! And, who doesn’t love taking a peek at a cutely appointed baby nursery?! Definitely got my wheels spinning in the decorating department.
Besides the general euphoria that I see in the new parents when I photograph newborn sessions, the excitement and energy around the new season in life is contagious. Sure, newborns can be unpredictable, and sometimes difficult to capture a good shot of, but they also signify a newness only fresh life can. I can’t wait to see what the years ahead hold for Baby Scotty and his mom and dad. One thing I’m certain of… it’ll be full of love.
