Memories are some of the most valuable things that we can take with us wherever we go. They’re treasures stored up in our minds, that we can revisit and feel some of the same love and joy that we did in that special moment. It’s no wonder then that Ashley and Jacob wanted to capture as many of these special moments in their little one’s life as they could! Their firstborn, Lily May, looked gorgeous in her newborn session, and my studio in Greenwich turned out to be the perfect place to capture so many great forever moments.
Mom and dad wanted a simple, classic look to the session, and chose a lovely palette of pinks and grays. We started off the session by swaddling Lily May up in a soft, pink fabric, with a lacy, pink bonnet covering her head. The backdrop was different shades and different textures of grays, from fur to fabric, acting as the cushiest bed for this precious one to pose on. We got some wonderful close-ups of her cute little button-nose profile, and her tiny fingers and toes.
As the session went on, I noticed Ashley and Jacob lovingly gazing at Lily May, trying their best to imprint every single detail into their memory. These special moments when a child is still small, totally dependent, and overwhelmingly cute go so quickly! Once we finished the first scene, we got mom and dad in front of the camera. Ashley and Jacob met 15 years ago, when they first bumped into each other at their alma mater, Johns Hopkins. They’ve been in wedded bliss for six years, and are so excited to live life as a family of three!
We took some individual shots of both mom and dad with their little one, where both parents were brimming with joy as they held Lily May in their arms. Then we got the whole family in front of the camera for one of our last, and for one of my favorite pictures. Ashley, Jacob, and Lily May together radiate with love and happiness, and I’m certain that Lily May is going to love growing up with such wonderful parents!
Now, Ashley and Jacob have all these forever moments to look back on, with every little detail perfectly preserved. If you want to capture the precious memories in your life, contact me here to book your session today!
