Anja and Mitch are a favorite past wedding couple.  They got married in a simply gorgeous wedding not too long ago… you can read that post on my wedding blog here.  I was over the moon when Anja messaged me that she and Mitch would be welcoming a little one soon and she hoped I could take their first family photos.  I know I’ve mentioned it before, but when I get the honor of telling a client’s baby story through photos… well, it just does not get better.  I photographed their wedding, which was amazing, of course, but to capture their newborn’s first photos… it’s just such an incredible blessing.  These photos will hang proudly on the walls of their home and as she grows, she will see where she began and the love that surrounded her.  It’s such an honor to do what I do.  Excuse me while I go cry into my coffee.  ;)


They decided to have me travel to their home for the photos, which was so much easier for them.  Many times baby can feel more comfortable in her own environment and I'm super mobile with my session set-up, so it's fine all around.  Nora was such a sweet little one and slept through most of her session, giving me grins along the way.  After some cozy shots of the three of them together, I left Nora to her nap with mom and dad.  Here are some favorite images from her session!  Thank you again, Mitch and Anja, for the honor of photographing your little blessing.  Nora is beautiful!!
