Little Thomas David made his debut and I was able to capture all of his fresh goodness in an in-home newborn photography session in Lafayette! Margo (Thomas’ mom) and I went to high school together and she’s been this gorgeous her entire life. She’s one of those moms that always has the good hair!
Benjamin (big brother) and I bonded while mom fed Thomas. I swear three-year-olds get me better than adults sometimes. We played spiderman, Toy Story and swords. He loves his new brother and was so excited to tell me all about it. You can tell by some of these pictures that having a new brother in the house is an adjustment, though. Benjamin wasn’t quite yet used to the noise a baby makes! I love capturing life with a new baby because of this. Babies sometimes aren’t soothed easily. Sometimes they get hungry. Sometimes they just want to cry. I love that photos help you remember all of it, because let’s be very real – that newborn life is a whirlwind!
This session I was able to capture some of their photos on medium format film with a Mamiya 645 (thanks, Sarah Beth Photography!) and I’m very pleased with the outcome! Shooting film indoors is a new step for me, but you all know I’m always game for a good lesson!
