Thank you for stumbling across my blog post about the astounding in-home newborn photography in Aldie, Virginia. This little cutie pie is twelve days old Everly Grace. Does the name ring a bell? If you have been following my work you may know that Everly is the one I photographed at the hospital when she was born mid December. Since it was my very first birth photography session you can imagine that Everly holds a special place in my heart. In fact, I was really excited to visit her at her home in Aldie, Virginia and to meet her little brother as well. When I arrived, little Ms. Everly was bright awake. Oh yes, she was? I get nervous when that happens since the type of photography I offer works best with very sleepy babies. I took my time setting up in Everly’s nursery. It was nice and warm in there, the kind of temperature I need when working with newborns that are lightly dressed. While I was setting up my equipment, I also got the chance to chat with her mom. We never got the chance to talk at the hospital since I was basically in and out of the OR the day Everly was born. Eventually, little Ms. Everly fell asleep and I got started taking her photos. Meanwhile, Everly’s dad was entertaining her brother and her mommy was watching patiently over my shoulders. I actually enjoy having a parent with me to lend a helping hand. Dear Maya and Bryan, I truly appreciate you trusting me with taking these images of your beautiful little girl. For the new year I wish you loads of energy for your two little kiddos and hope that you’ll stay in touch?
