Every time I take a family’s portraits, I get so excited to get the family’s reaction to the photos. Newborn portraits are a little different. There are parts of a newborn session where the parents are involved in the taking of the photos, but when those photos are done, the parents can choose sit back and watch, or close their eyes and relax just out of sight. This session was one of those times when Mom and Dad sat on my couch, closed their eyes, and relaxed. I was so excited that I had a little secret surprise for them. There is something very special about capturing such a beautiful moment for a family.
