This past weekend I had the pleasure of meeting and photographing a new family here in southern Maine. The Merritt family had just welcomed their second daughter a week ago. Big sister was already fitting into her new role and was happy to hold her new little sister by herself for the very first time. She was so gentle; I never would have known she hadn’t done it before. I think that baby Blake lucked out with a great big sister.
I feel so blessed to be able to do newborn sessions like this; coming into people’s homes immediately after such a big life change is a huge honor and I don’t take it lightly. The home is a sacred place which is why I think in home newborn lifestyle sessions are so precious. To capture this fleeting moment in our lives, in our most special and real place, is amazing and priceless.
Thank you, Merritt family, for allowing me to come into your home and your lives and capture this time for you all.
