M’s first few weeks of life were so busy (and overwhelming) that I managed only a few true newborn photos (which I shared here, she was about 3 weeks old). I’m an okay photographer but I rely on photoshop and photoshop actions to give my images that extra boost. They are often not as crisp or bright as I like (there’s an art that takes so much practice!). It works out well enough for this blog and for capturing family moments, but my handful of photos for Marley didn’t feel special enough for remembering her beautiful welcome into the world.
I kept debating on whether I should invest in an actual photographer, and finally around 6 weeks I pulled the trigger. Since Marley was no longer a teeny tiny newborn (no sleeping or basket photos), our photographer Katie shot a few lifestyle photos instead and I decided to include the whole family (btw, if you plan on teeny tiny newborn photos, Katie suggests to plan on doing those within the first 5-6 days of birth).
Although Marlowe is still teeny tiny, her wide awake 6-week-old eyes and alert little body reveal something special and unique, too.
I have about 20 favorites :), so I would bog down the load time on the front page of this site to share them all right here, but I do invite you to click through for the whole shebang!
