I originally met Ashley and Dustin back in August for their film maternity session, and I was so thankful to be able to see them again and meet their beautiful baby girl, Emma, just a few months later at her newborn session.
It’s always so wonderful to meet a couple before and again after their baby is born. I get to see them right in the middle of the anticipation of a baby, in an outwardly joyful time; and then I get to see them settle into life with baby. Also a joyful time, but it’s a different kind of joy. It’s usually quiet, raw, not super easy (so I’ve heard). I remember months ago at their maternity session realizing pretty quickly that Ashley and Dustin are just the sweetest: kind, personable, really easy going, good hearted people, and I knew their newborn session would be a good one because I knew those traits would carry over. I knew that they would be flexible, I knew that they would be positive and upbeat, and I knew that even if little Emma was a challenge (as babies can sometimes be for newborn sessions), they wouldn’t let that weigh on them or change their spirits on that day. And that’s exactly how it went… I love when that happens.
Ashley and Dustin I’m so happy to have met you guys! I hope you treasure these images for years and years to come.
