I always love doing newborn sessions, and capturing a new family discovering each other for the first time. This session was a very very special one to me, because this family is so dear to me. Tony has been one of my husband’s best friends since college, and Kristen has been one of my best friends for nearly ten years now. I was so thrilled when they welcomed their beautiful baby boy, Will, in August.
I have never seen them so happy. Both of them, tired as they were with a newborn at home, were just glowing with love for their son and for each other. I just love the way they look at Will and at the way they were looking at each other, so joyful, so peaceful, so content. And Will is just a super chill little dude, loving being cuddled by his mama and papa, and making all sorts of wide-eyed funny faces for me :)
The day Will was born, my husband and I were telling our daughter that she had a new friend in the world that night, that our friends Kristen and Tony (who she knows well and loves) had a baby boy named Will. She said, “He will be my family?” We both got choked up and said, yes, baby, he will be your family.
Congratulations, friends, we love you to the moon and back and are so happy for you. We are so thrilled to have Will in our family :)
