In December of 2023, I had the privilege of photographing a beautiful mother-to-be named Sandra. Expecting her second child, she was excited to complete her family with the arrival of their new baby!

Sandra and her adorable family were such a pleasure to work with. They had a lot going on, a new home and soon their second child! Once our session began, we had a really fun time together! Sandra was glowing in all white and I was so honored to capture this memory for them. Big sister was the happiest baby, she was smiling the entire session Considering it was December, mother nature was in a good mood herself, it was a pleasant day and we were able to shoot some images outside at one of my favorite Elmhurst locations!

I was ecstatic to hear from Sandra once baby Edson was born, she wanted me to shoot her newborn pictures! It is always an honor to hear back from my clients, knowing the experience met their expectations and they wanted to repeat it again! And to be invited into a clients’ home, an even bigger honor.

Those first few weeks home with new baby are filled with a thousand different emotions. It can be a blur, we have to think about so many things, how many hours since the last feeding, is big sister getting what she needs, maternity leave. Hard to be in the moment the entire time. I hope when Sandra and her family look back at these images, they can relive the experience, one that seems to fly.

If they look back at the photos and feel the joy all over again, then I did my job. Baby Edson was just adorable, he put up with our outfit changes and basket swaps! Welcome to the world Edson!

Thanks for reading! Until next time,
