I had the most delightful time taking newborn photos for this sweet family! Baby Hudson made his entrance to the world early June, and was seriously the most RELAXED baby I’ve ever photographed! :)
When I arrived, Kirah was finishing up feeding Hudson, and it was a moment that I just had to capture. Seeing how lovingly and gently she was holding him, feeding him, and wiping his mouth (and seeing Mitch help) was SO precious! It’s the little gestures and expressions that make ordinary moments like this so beautiful. We then continued our session and took a lot of gorgeous photos in their bedroom. The light coming through the windows was simply spectacular! The solo portraits of Hudson were also amazing. The simplicity of the white bedsheets made the perfect backdrop to highlight his newborn freshness and newness! Not only that, he was so happy and content, which made it easy for me to photograph him :)
I also had so much fun getting shots of them as a family together, as well as photos of Mitch swaddling Hudson! When we took portraits in the nursery, I felt like it added so much character to their story. From the cute Calvin and Hobbs stuffed animal, to the Virginia Tech blanket, to their cats making an appearance to the shoot—it’s these types of details that brings out the uniqueness of each family! By the end of the session, I honestly felt like every shot was AWESOME and below are some highlights!
Big congrats again to Mitch and Kirah, and welcome to the world, baby Hudson! You are so loved!
