This Monday I got to do one of the most special sessions I do, a birth story. Everett Flores is here, he’s healthy, he’s happy, he’s adorable, he’s 8lbs, and his mom and dad are so in love already. His mom is an actual wonder woman! She labored for quite some time at home and was almost half way ready to push by the time she got to Scripps Hospital in Encinitas, CA. When I arrived she was feeling the pain, but after a while things calmed down. His dad was so helpful and encouraging to mom. Not long after I arrived it was time to meet Everett! I got to visit him the next day and get to photograph him before he hit his 24-hour mark. This kid is already so handsome and I’m honored to be his first photographer!
Nothing makes my day like seeing my clients again, especially when they have a new family member to introduce to the world! A few weeks back I got to meet the Tober’s newest family member, Lincoln, for his newborn shoot in San Diego, CA. You probably remember his handsome older brother Theo, both of these boys are going to be serious heart breakers! Lincoln’s newborn photos are not traditional, we did a lifestyle shoot to show how life goes with a newborn, older brother, and preparing for a cross country move! Lifestyle shoots are and excellent option if your looking for something unique to your family (they’re also cheaper than a traditional newborn shoot).
I’m so lucky to have met Clare, Mike, Theo and Lincoln; the navy life brings wonderful people into your world that you would have never met otherwise and I’m honored to capture some of their memories while they were stationed here. <3 Until we meet again!
