This newborn session was extra special for me. I have been friends with Riley’s mom for years, so to meet her beautiful little blessing for the first time and then to have the opportunity to photograph her so early in life was an honor.
Riley’s parents’ engagement picture session was one of the very first sessions I did on my own as I was getting into photography several years ago. Up until that point, I had done assistant work only and shooting their engagement session was one of the first times I was truly on my own. I had such a blast doing their pictures and it was one of the first times that I really felt the desire to focus on portraiture work. What an exciting adventure it’s been since that time!
Now, several years later, Rebecca and Jonathan have welcomed their sweet little blessing Riley Alonna into the world! What a special time for them and for their families and what a beautiful baby she is! Riley wasn’t really into sleeping for our session, but she was so laid back and content the entire time and allowed us to get some great shots.
Rebecca and Jonathan, thank you so much for allowing me the opportunity to photograph your baby girl and your new family of three… congratulations!
