Some of you know that I photograph weddings in addition to running my newborn studio. You could say that's how my newborn work began so many years ago... it all started with one of my past bride's calling to announce her pregnancy. I knew from the moment I photographed that sweet mama and later, her baby girl that I had found something I truly loved. It has been the greatest blessing of my career to capture photos of my past wedding clients, as they begin their journey as a family.
Yarwijn and Adam are one of those couples. I had the incredible honor of capturing their gorgeous wedding in 2012- it was one of those days you don't forget. You can see their post on my wedding blog here. Yarwijn is the kind of person you feel as though you've known your entire life. She's warm and genuine. Adam is the perfect compliment to her. Seeing their bond makes you wish you had something just like that in your life, if you don't already. And without even trying, they just draw you in and make you feel like you are a part of their family.
Of course, seeing these two wonderful people on the brink of having their own little wonderful blessing together, was as you could expect: simply wonderful. I loved every second of this session.... Yarwijn was both sweet and joyful, strong and fragile simultaneously. One thing about motherhood... there are a great many emotions to feel, sometimes all at once. ;) The weather was a little chilly for April, so we chose to capture some images in-studio and some outdoors. I think it's the perfect mix of Yarwijn and Adam's anticipation of their little one. I can't wait to show off the images from his session very soon!
If you are expecting a baby in Lansing or the surrounding areas, I would absolutely love to connect with you! You can see more of my work here or you can contact me here and we can chat about babies. I can't wait to hear from you!
