In early November of last year, Jessie and Bryan welcomed their first child, Theodor, into their lives. I took Jessie’s maternity photos late last summer and had such a wonderful time doing so. Although I met I met little Theo as a newborn it didn’t quite work out to photograph him then. However we were able to connect in late December close to his two month mark 🙂
For reasons that remain irrelevant here, it took me a few months to get these photos to them. As always I appreciate their grace and understanding – more than they know. I was blessed with the opportunity Bryan and Jessie gave me to to practice my photography. There’s something very special about capturing those intimate moments when it’s just this new little family…mom, dad, and baby still newly bonding through tears and laughter. Little “Thor” was a bit fussy which was a fun challenge, but he often would calm, giving me just enough time to snap a couple of memories.
