Jasmine was still comfortable in her mom’s tummy, when I did this Maternity Session with Fran and Jeff, just 3 weeks before her arrival into the world. It’s always amazing to be in the presence of a beautiful, perfect little being. You can’t help but say aww, and wonder at the small miracle. But, don’t let this little one fool you. At only 3 weeks, she knows exactly what she wants; to be in mom’s arms. Not in mom’s arms; cry. In mom’s arms; perfect bliss. This was also my 4th official Newborn Portrait. What have I learned this time around? There is no ‘schedule’ or ‘timeline’ when working with small babies. They are all different and unique and you have to be flexible and very patient when photographing them. And, it’s SO worth it in the end!
Fran and Jeff, Jasmine is a doll! Thank you so much for letting me capture a small part of her perfectness :)
