LIFESTYLE NEWBORN SESSION | Portland, Oregon

053A3127-21.jpg

I'm not really a classic newborn photographer. I don't love posing tiny babies or putting bows on their head...and even if I did my lack of a beautiful, temperature controlled studio keeps me from doing so. I don't mind though, because I don't think posing newborns is really my strength.

But I do love photographing LOVE. So I really feel honored when I get to capture a simple moment in time - be a fly on the wall so to speak -- capturing it as it happens, with little to no posing. On this special day, I was able to photograph Baby E.

A good friend of mine recently opened her home to a baby girl who needed one. I've been fortunate enough to meet this sweet little girl and spend time with her, she has big sparkling eyes and a quiet easy going demeanor. Because my friend is her Foster Mama, we can't show her face but let me tell you, she's a beauty.

The truth is we never really know what is coming our way, what challenges -- and what surprises. I was reminded of this so intensely while I photographed this little one. What an adventure she is...and will continue to be.
