This sweet newborn session was a dream to photograph. I flew from Florida to San Francisco to photograph their precious newborn, Poppy, in their apartment which had the most amazing light. Kristin was a bridesmaid in a wedding I photographed in Hawaii and I’ll never forget her saying to me, “ when I have a baby, I’m flying you out to photograph our newborn session.” That’s obviously the highest compliment any photographer can be given! To think someone loves your work so much they would want to fly you out to photograph one of their most memorable moments in their lives is such an honor. Well, she was one hundred percent serious and I couldn’t have been any more thrilled to receive a message from her.
As new parents, newborn session can be a bit of a fog between the lack of sleep, new emotions and taking care of a new life that belongs to you. Working with this lovely family was like a dream. Kristin and Anthony were the most laid back, sweetest and most photographic couple I could have ever hoped for. I had been looking forward to this session for months, so when Elisabeth “Poppy” made her arrival, I was so excited! She is just as cute and sweet as her name and was the most perfect angel the entire session. They fell effortlessly into gorgeous poses and I love that they even included their adorable fur baby, Linus. There were so many moments during the session of quiet laughing and being in awe at all the newborn cuteness in front of us. As they cuddled into one another, their love for each other and their sweet baby girl was beyond precious. Even Linus wanted in on the baby snuggles which led to the most amazing photos! With every click of my camera and roll of film changed, the pictures continued to get sweeter. It was such an honor to capture Kristen and Anthony with their perfect Poppy and I couldn’t be any more in love with their session.
