Meet Baby {Q} | Hampton Roads Newborn Photographer

I'm still busy over here getting caught up on blogging all of these gorgeous sessions I had before the holidays!  This lifestyle newborn session is one of my absolute favorite sessions to date, and it's easy to see why! 

I first met Baby Q's beautiful mother for her maternity portrait session in the fall.  When I met her, I learned that she was a first time mommy and that her husband was deployed and would be gone for the birth.  She knew photographs were especially important because it would be all her husband would have of the pregnancy, birth, and newborn experience.  Any of us who have experienced being a military spouse know how difficult it can be, but having your spouse gone during a life changing time like this makes it even harder.  But this incredible woman was still SO positive.  I was so inspired by her!

Once sweet Baby Q was born, we decided to do his lifestyle newborn session in a new photography studio that had recently opened in Chesapeake!  The Studio at Chelsea Commons was PERFECT for this session.  Everything came together SO beautifully.  Baby {Q} was wide awake during the entire time...although we know he was tired because he kept yawning over and over again. Haha!  It was adorable! Who doesn't love newborn baby yawns?! 

I know his mommy was probably exhausted after caring for him by herself, but you'd never know it from this session.  She was radiant, and glowing with love and pride for her baby boy.  The two of them already had such an incredible bond, but I guess that goes without saying because the second you look at these photos you'll see that for yourself!

Congratulations, Mama! You made it and you did an incredible job.  And welcome home, Daddy!  I know these two were beyond excited for you to finally return.
