If you’re my friend or a loyal follower of my Insta feed or blog, then you’ll recognize the faces of this Los Angeles at home newborn session. My dear friends, Brandi and Will, started making frequent appearances on my platforms nine years ago with their engagement session and have been consistent subjects of mine ever since.
I’ve been downright honored to not just photograph special life events for this family – but to also walk alongside them through all the ups and downs of life as their friend. Looking back at older photos – it’s obvious that we’ve all grown up a lot. And we’ve done it together.
Los Angeles At Home Newborn Session
Brandi and Will have always been a few life steps ahead of me – getting married before me and having their first child, Ruby before I had the pleasure of becoming a mom. I never felt envious of this. What I felt was inspired.
Their relationship helped to show me that a marriage was something I wanted. Seeing them become parents helped guide me when it was my turn to become a mom. Brandi even helped fill me with the confidence I needed to give birth to Jones at home.
Speaking of home births – this Los Angeles newborn session was originally supposed to be a Los Angeles home birth session, but Will and Brandi’s newest daughter, Remi Rose had different plans. She entered this world faster than anyone could’ve anticipated – the midwife beating her arrival earthside by sheer minutes.
Remi Rose, you are the perfect addition to the Lemon family. Your big sister loves you with a fierceness so sweet and pure, and you certainly picked right when you chose Brandi and Will as your parents. I cannot wait to watch you grow, learn and soon play with Jones. Welcome to the world!
