There are no words for how much I adore this family. From the moment I first met them during a newborn shoot for their first son Quincy, I was instantly smitten. Everything about them rang true to me and we had an instant connection. When Kristen contacted me to book her newborn session just WEEKS after finding out she was pregnant with baby #2, that's when I knew they maybe liked me as much as I liked them! LOL! :)
Kristen and Walter have an amazing birth story for little Wylie. It was an unplanned and unexpected home birth. Technically, an in-the-car parked in front of the house thank goodness the neighbor is a labor and delivery nurse, kinda birth. Walter caught his son. Kristen is a ROCKSTAR. Big brother Quincy was, initially, far more interested in the firefighter's who came to "clean up" than his baby brother! And luckily Grandma was around to help with everything including wrangling Quincy and keeping him entertained during this session. Such a wonderful, amazing, awesome family. I especially loved that Kristen & Walter are not into props or "things", they wanted their newborn session to be as raw and authentic and natural and relaxed as possible. Totally my vibe. We basically hung out for several hours and I took pictures. Directed a few shots here and there but mostly just engaged, observed and captured.
Kristen & Walter, thank you for entrusting me yet again to capture these special memories for you. As always, our time together was absolutely delightful despite the record making that was going on in the pee & poop department! HA! :)
Love you all! (and a huge thank you to grandma for all her help!)
ENJOY your sneak peek!
