There is something so sweet and so intimate about watching a family interact in their own home in the few days following the birth of a baby. I love how happy and chaotic everything seems. I love that mamas smile through the sleep depravation, that siblings tiptoe cautiously around this tiny little thing that makes so much noise, that families care so much about capturing this time in their life that they actually add to the every-growing to do list by hiring a photographer. I love being invited into homes all over San Diego. These clients hold such a special place in my heart.
These are some of my absolute favorite sessions. The newborn smell, the tiny toes, the look of enamored love and exhaustion on everyone's face. It is such a perfect and messy time in life, something that can never be recreated.
