FinleyAdele_001One of my very favorite things about being a wedding photographer is reconnecting with past clients during new and exciting times in their lives. Pregnancy, new homes, new puppies, and new babies! This past June I had the honor of photographing Erica and Jon’s new edition, Finley, on Jon’s very first Father’s Day.  I love getting the opportunity to photograph newborn sessions in the hospital, especially with new parents and their first born.  There’s just something so special about capturing the very first moments when two people transform from a couple into a family. The joy and fear, delight and exhaustion.  Tiny footprints inked on paper, attempting to master the origami skill of swaddling, hearing tests, trying to figure out the car seat for the first time… I just find it so much more meaningful than posing your 5-day-old in a wicker basket in the middle of a wheat field.  Don’t get me wrong, that can be totally cute but really, which are you going to treasure more?  It’s always the moments, rarely the poses.  Congrats once again to Jon and Erica! I can’t wait to watch your little one grow!!  xoxo, Amy
