a sweet in home newborn session
Ya’ll how sweet is River?! I am so glad I was able to photograph this sweet in home newborn session for my friends and past ESP wedding couple, Caitlin + Brennan! This guy was over due. Like by a lot. And if you look at his tiny Mama, I’m not quite sure how he ever fit in there, but here he is! Caitlin and Brennan are friends of mine, so this was an especially special newborn session.
I got to see these two as p a r e n t s!!
And they were so good. Real partners and each so proud of the other. It was such a beautiful thing to witness. I’m so proud of you guys.
I’m in love with River. He’s squishy and looks right into your eyes. He knows what he likes and what he doesn’t. He does NOT like being without his socks or mittens, which I love. He was so chill until Brennan took his socks off.

The story behind River’s name:
We were lucky in that we agreed on a name so easily. We loved the imagery and meaning behind River-this powerful, mighty yet peaceful force of nature that is always evolving and adapting while shaping the world around it. River’s middle name, Adam, is after his great-grandfather, an incredible man we lost this year.
Three words that describe River
Observant, smiles, outgoing
Must have baby item:
Little Unicorn muslin car canopy. It gives the germaphobe in me a greater sense of protection when we go out in public and it’s adorable.
What is the best piece of parenting advice you’ve received?
Be gentle with yourself, you are all your baby needs just as you are.
