,As I meet and photograph my families I am always trying to come up with ideas to make their sessions fun, easy and relaxed. When my friends Ashley and Brent recently had their sweet baby Mikko I knew that I wanted to go to their home and photograph them just being new parents. This time of their life is so crazy, however, I knew they would want memories of this wonderful, insane time of their life being new parents.
There was no posing, no preparation. I simply spent an hour hanging out with my friends and snapping photos.His room is so adorable with the little foxes and forest animals throughout. I love the result. The photos are intimate and cozy. I like the idea of families having photos of their themselves, in their home, on their walls. I want to capture those moments that moms and dads see everyday but can't quite capture on their phones. And, bonus, they get to be in the photos as well.
I hope to shoot more of these sessions this year. Imagine the possibilities. Baking cookies, playing outside, reading books. I am so excited for what 2019 has to offer.
