Remember these two and their amazing NYC maternity session?! Over the weekend I had the immense joy of documenting their newborn session at our home. I've known Courtney for over 16 years (WHAT?!) and was honored when she asked me to photograph her precious family of three. It's always a joy to photograph dear friends, especially on their journey to parenthood!
Watching Courtney and Dave with their new daughter was a delight. They are such incredible parents : patient, gentle, loving. Dave is such a proud Papa and Courtney is such a nurturing presence around Emmeline. It brought me right back to those first few weeks with our son Jonathan and the joy it was to discover who he was. Being a Mom (or Dad) is all sorts of awesome and I'm so excited our dear friends get to experience that journey too!
This is the second portrait session we've hosted at our house and it was so fun playing with the ample natural light we have. It was brutally cold outside, but warm and toasty inside, the perfect setting for a newborn session. Add in the gorgeous florals from Les Fleurs in Andover and I was in photography heaven. Wait till you see what they created for sweet Emmeline! Courtney loves Rifle Paper Co. and these florals were the perfect nod to all things Rifle, pastel and feminine! (Brides to Be take note, if you're looking for an amazing florist, look no further than Les Fleurs, they are incredible!)
Courtney and Dave, what an exciting year you have in store! I truly hope that these images capture the love and joy you have your baby girl, may they always remind you of the immense love & bond you felt the first time you held her in your arms! Welcome to the world Miss Emmeline!
