Don't you just love that name... Daphne.
I met the Morales family in their Chapel Hill home just days after they brought their little girl Daphne home. It was such a wonderful time getting to know Sarah and Jason as they were just in the first days of getting to know their sweet Daphne. You know what's one of the coolest things about newborn sessions to me? It's getting to watch new moms and dads absolutely fall in love with their little ones. It's like I get a cool little glimpse into some pretty intimate moments that will really bring tears to your eyes. For example, there was one time in Daphne's session where we laid her down on the ottoman in front of the window, and Jason and Sarah just stepped back and stared at her. Completely in awe. I can't remember exactly what she said, but Sarah got really excited and mentioned that she was seeing something on Daphne for the first time. Ever! How cool is that? Newborn sessions are full of those breathtaking moments and this one in particular seemed to have many of them.
One of my favorite parts of this session was when they asked if they could include their sweet pup Abbey in some shots. "ABSOLUTELY" is always my answer to that question! We joined in the family room, and Jason invited Abbey up on the sofa with them. Abbey jumped up, cuddled right up to Jason, and immediately stretched out and fell asleep in his lap! Serious dog heaven and so hilarious!
