At home in Danville
I feel so honored when I meet newborns for portrait sessions. It's such a gloriously short period when they're so tiny, and what fun it is to be a part of it. I had the great pleasure to meet baby Chase last weekend, and his beautiful family at their home in Danville. They have two boys and a gorgeous white couch. I was not only impressed by that (a bold move with boys!) I was also excited because it made a fantastic setting for a "new" family portrait. I just love the look of these photos with the window light pouring in.
This one makes me want to go back in time to when my son was just 4 weeks old - how I wish we had a picture like this of us! What a cooperative baby he was...and so was Daddy (you can guess what happened with a naked baby boy!)
And here's two more I love, in black and white. The sweet, serene face of a new baby...is there anything better? And I love the moment here between father and son - you can almost hear the giggles.
