Baby Emma | Charlottesville, VA

I woke up this morning, walked outside to get the paper, and did a little post Saint Patrick’s jig when I felt the enveloping warmth of this March morning. Glorious spring! Even our neighbor, who has been hibernating since November, was out in her front yard trimming her daffodils. I love this time of year.

Thank you for your patience these last few months. I took a little bit of a break from blogging to work on our new website (woot woot – coming soon!) and to step back and think and talk to John about our goals for the year (life goals, photography dreams, relationships, etc). It was really helpful to be able to do this, but now, after shooting our first wedding of 2011 last weekend, we are officially back in the swing of things and the bloggy blog will get some much needed attention.:-)

I have a very special treat for you today. Last week I had the privilege of stepping into the lives of two new parents and photographing them with their first child, Emma. It is seriously amazing what I get to do. I am always so honored to be able to participate in people’s lives in such an intimate way.

Little Emma is a complete bundle of cuddly, gooey baby. At our session she was very alert and wanted to be held most of the time. We started her on the bed in some beautiful light, but after a while she¬†got tired of that and started to roll over on her side! I’m not kidding. At two weeks! She didn’t quite make it, but it looked awful close!

Yay for baby feet!!

What a beautiful family!

JW is such a proud dad. Rightfully so.

Here’s Momma. So precious.

What I love about this next image is that the hands say it all. You don’t even have to see their faces to know how much this little one is loved.

Couldn’t you just stare at this cute little face all day long?

Elizabeth and JW – Congratulations on your newest additon. JW, as you so accurately stated earlier, “she is the awesomest ever”.:-)

Makes me wish I had photos like this of my babies when they were so itty-bitty! Nice work, Natalie!
