The day that I switched over my social media and parts of my website over to Charleston, I received two inquiries. I was sure that both were intended for Washington but I had literally changed things over just hours before. I even went as far as to respond with referrals. After a little confusion, I realized Michelle was indeed looking for a Charleston Newborn Photographer. WHAT?! It was so exciting and I was thankful they didn’t dismiss me for seeming a little nutty from the start. 😉
Fast forward a couple hurricanes and flight changes later, I was able to meet up with Michelle and Sam in their new home and hear all about the upcoming arrival of little Henry. We knew we were taking a littttle bit of a risk (thanks, guys!) because I was due to move to the East Coast just a week before his due date. And wouldn’t you know it, Henry decided to come a couple of weeks early. But thankfully all of the stars aligned and I did in fact get to do his lifestyle newborn session!
I absolutely love Henry’s nursery. It was so simple and calming, with little pops of greenery to break up the light neutrals. Basically this photographers dream backdrop for a session. Henry slept for the majority of his session and loved to snuggle up with Mom and Dad – always ensuring to cover his face. I’d move his arm and I’d get an eyebrow raise. Barely two weeks old and so much personality already. I did at least get a smile towards the end!
Congratulations Sam and Michelle. Henry is absolutely perfect. Thank you for inviting me into your home to document such a sweet time for your family. It’s been so much fun getting to know you and I hope to see you three again soon.
^ that smile….melt my heart!
We made sure to get a few photos with Grandpa too!
