Boston’s in home newborn session – lifestyle

I recently had the opportunity to do an in home newborn session for a dear friend of mine.  Kristine is also a photographer.  You may remember her maternity session I did this past fall.  Photography brought us together and we have been friends for a few years now.  She has three beautiful daughters and for a couple of years now, they have been trying to add another baby to their family.  This hasn’t been an easy task.  There has been much loss, stress and sadness on this road.  Every time she would tell me that she was pregnant, we got excited, but knew there was uncertainty.  With this last pregnancy, something seemed different.  Kristine felt different.  She felt so sick.  We both agreed that was a good sign!

Carrying a baby takes long enough as it is.  You feel like you are pregnant FOREVER.  But when you have been faced with loss, pregnancy takes an eternity.  You just want that final day to arrive and know your baby is okay and safe in your arms.  That day finally came on December 30, 2014.  Boston Michael made his debut into the world!  He was a healthy and handsome baby boy.  He was greeted by his parents with such an incredible love and appreciation.  He was adored instantly by his 3 older sisters.  This is one lucky little boy.

I enjoyed my visit to their home.  Kristine wanted a lifestyle newborn session instead of a posed newborn session.  It was so great hanging out with them all for the day and capturing little clips here and there.  Now let’s be honest here, since we are good friends I spent a lot of that time just snuggling Boston.  Oh boy is he a great snuggler.  He is so handsome and sweet. I had a hard time giving him up so that I could make the 2 1/2 hour trip back home.  I hope I get to snuggle him again before he is too big and on the move!

I send all my love to the Kraft family and wish them well with their newest addition.  It was a journey worth the wait!  To any other families out there struggling to have a child or more children, don’t lose faith.  Support each other and surround yourselves with positive energy, prayer and love.  Hugs to you all!

    This is such a beautiful session! And this style of photography speaks to me – capturing those every day moments in a beautiful way that tells the story. I’m a hobbyist and will be shooting a newborn session for my nephew and his wife very soon. Hoping to get something they will love. Thank you for the inspiration!ReplyCancel
