The great thing about my job is that I get to meet all sorts of wonderful people on a regular basis. I participate in snippets of their life, but they’re the most amazing snippets, and it’s truly a remarkable feeling to be involved. How lucky, to have been a part of so many wonderful moments in people’s lives.
So, I truly do consider it a true blessing to be able to be involved in more than just a snippet sometimes…and sometimes, to be able to then count them as friends. And for these guys, that’s how it is. I photographed their wedding in 2011 when I was pregnant with Grace. In the wee hours of the morning that I had my daughter, I remember emailing Danielle – and it’s a fond memory that I have as part of Grace’s birth story. I remember Danielle telling me on the phone that she was pregnant, and I just about cried when I received the pictures of their new baby via text message, when he was born.
I’ve got an absolutely gorgeous photograph of Danielle when just about ready to have her baby, which I’ll share next week along with his newborn photographs (there’s method in my madness!), but for now I wanted to share these beautiful photographs from in the hospital at their Fresh48 session, when James – was less than 48 hours old. He was the most beautiful, chubby-cheeked little cherub.
I can’t wait to share his newborn photography session, but for now, a little bit of sweetness from this gorgeous new family x
