If baby Hadley’s birth story is any indication of her personality, this little lady LOVES to make a grand entrance! Not only did she make her excited parents (and ME! 🙂 ) wait over a week past her due date, but she strategically arrived right between two Nor’Easters. By the time I made my way down to their home for our session, she was almost two weeks old, but oh boy was it worth the wait! I spent so much of our time together marveling at how calm she was…she would fade in and out of sleep between outfit changes and hardly made a peep. One of the great things about doing these sessions in the clients home is that I get to photograph them in their own space; in the very places where they will spend the most time with their new baby. I get to see the nursery that they spent hours planning and putting together, rows of baby clothes hanging in the closet just waiting to be worn. Hadleys nursery was basically what I would like my own room NOW to look like! It was so warm and inviting, with little details that showed me how thought had gone into creating it. And if were being honest, it made me guilty that we still refer to my sons bedroom as ‘the office’. 🙂The new Mom and Dad both seemed like they had been doing this ‘parent thing’ forever. It was clear they both were beyond smitten with their little girl.
What is it about Dads and babies? Is there anything sweeter than seeing the way such a tiny little person can make a grown man melt? OK…maybe baby feet are sweeter than Dads? And while I kinda feel guilty essentially saying feet are better than Dads…I can’t help myself! I mean look at these little baby tootsies! Is there any way to keep baby feet tiny forever? After spending so much time with this family in their home and hearing from Mom the full story of Hadleys birth, I was in awe of her. She worked so hard to bring Hadley into this world, and hearing her say she was just thankful that she was here and healthy, despite things not going perfectly to ‘plan’, was wonderful.Not only did I get to meet the human baby 🙂 but I got to meet the fur babies! These two were so in love with their new sister! 🙂 They followed us everywhere and so of course we needed them in the family photo!Being welcomed into someones home during such a special season in their lives will never get old for me. It means so much that families trust me to document their first days together. Thank you Sbordone family for welcoming me into your home and letting me steal some baby snuggles!
