Brand New Baby Session | Lynchburg Baby Photographer

One day we can address my constant enthusiasm about photography... but for now I need to share this session with you guys. (You like how I reworded my normal way of saying "I am SO EXCITED to share this session with you!!" don't you?! ;))

So I love birth photography. I am often left speechless after a birth experience because there really is no way to describe how sacred I think it is... how honored I am to be able to capture such beautiful moments. It is growing in popularity and of course with that come people who think it is weird... or wouldn't dare let a camera in on such a personal experience.

This was the exact case with Olivia and her husband. Olivia, a photographer herself, wanted her birth experience captured. Her husband was naturally hesitant. So they compromised and invited me to capture their hospital experience about 24 hours after their baby L was born through a Brand New Baby session.

I am excited to have this session to share because I want other moms to know that the Brand New Baby session is an option for them as well. If your can't get your whole family on board for birth experience photography, this is a great compromise to still capture that short time in you and your baby's lives.

Isn't it such a beautiful time?

Equipment used for this session:  canon 5d mark ii // canon 50mm f/1.2 L lens
