Baby R || An In-Home Newborn Session

A few months ago I got THE most exciting phone call – my wonderful friend from college, Mr. M., got in touch to let me know his fabulous wife, Mrs. M., was pregnant with their SECOND baby!! AND he wanted to know if I was available to take Baby #2’s newborn photos! So OF COURSE the answer was ABSOLUTELY!!

Mr. M. and I met our sophomore year of college when we were co-orientation aides (along with the wonderful N.E. Wolfe ;-)) and immediately became friends. He is just one of those awesome guys you meet and just know you’ll always be friends with, even if you lose touch a bit now and then :). Last summer, when I was driving cross country, Mr. M., along with his growing family, and I all happened to be in Maine and I got the opportunity to meet his lovely wife, their beautiful daughter, and Mrs. M’s parents! It was so much fun getting the opportunity to meet the whole clan!

And when I met their little one, all I could think was – I NEED to photograph this girl! Their daughter has the most incredible eyes that just make your heart melt…(don’t worry – many pictures of her gorgeous baby blues heading your way!) So thank you to Mr. and Mrs. M. for allowing me to photograph their munchkin(s)!

How much fun to see the whole family again (grandparents included!) upon the arrival of their gender-surprise baby…a SECOND baby girl!

Upon Miss R.’s arrival, I hopped in my car and drove the roughly 2 hours to their home to take her newborn photos, because that’s what you do when your wonderful friends have a beautiful baby :).

M. family, I am SO happy that I got to spend this time with you all. I loved loved loved seeing you and capturing this incredible time in your lives, and I hope to see you all again very very very soon!
