Allow me to introduce you to the lovely Aria, along with her adoring parents, Angela and Chris. Our journey together began around two months ago during an unforgettable maternity photoshoot, and now I had the privilege of being invited into their stunning home for a heartwarming newborn session.
While I have a deep affection for capturing the charm of nurseries and the coziness of homes, I couldn’t resist the charm of their porch and backyard. Born during the warm days of summer, baby Aria provided the perfect opportunity for an outdoor photoshoot. Surrounded by the lush beauty of blooming hydrangeas and the sight of fuzzy peaches ripening on the trees, the stage was set for a beautiful session.
On the day of the newborn photoshoot, Angela expressed some reservations about stepping in front of the camera. I completely empathized with her. The early days of motherhood can be filled with exhaustion, the demands of establishing a breastfeeding routine, and sleepless nights. We had a heartfelt conversation about how important it is for her baby girl to see her mama in these pictures and how fleeting those precious first days are. To my delight, this radiant mama decided to embrace the moment, and we captured their first family portraits – gentle, magical, and overflowing with love.
Angela’s feedback upon receiving her photo gallery warmed my heart: “Hi Julia – thank you so much! The pictures came out amazing! Thanks again for such amazing work and for capturing Aria and our family so perfectly!! I’m glad that you pushed Chris and me to be in the pictures as well – such a great decision!! We definitely would love to work with you again in the future!”
