I drove to Steveston yesterday morning to meet and photograph two-week-old baby Noah. His parents are Claire and Wes, long-time clients of mine. In fact, Claire and Wes are the first very couple to hire me to photograph not only their engagement, but their wedding, their maternity & now, their newborn photos. At the end of their Steveston maternity session, Claire inquired about newborn photos. As a wedding photographer, she wondered if I was into family photos — or if I knew a photographer who was. I said I would love to.
I’ve been enjoying portraiture a lot lately. I like the challenge of finding non-traditional ways to capture families, babies, maternity. I’m not into black and white backgrounds, studio work, anything super formal, but capturing people as they are, in their home, like this session? I love it. It’s been a joy to capture all four milestones in Claire and Wes’ life over the past two years. Thank you so much, Claire and Wes, for inviting me into your home and trusting me with your memories.
