who were expecting their first child in December.
Immediately I felt so welcomed into their home, and into their lives in
a tiny way. We had never met before then, but I had such a lovely time talking with them during their maternity session, and I looked forward to their child’s birth, anxiously awaiting news to hear if they had a girl or a boy,
and what name they chose!
Yes I love taking newborn photos…
but I think somewhere along the way I started to think of them as friends,
not just clients,
and the pictures I’d get to take were just a bonus.
So it was an honor to be able to meet their little girl Falon,
at their home, at just 1 week old!
Sidenote – Falon Vale – such a lovely, unique name!
It just sounds so pretty, and certainly suits the owner.
Matt and Kim had just settled back in at home,
and were willing to let me visit them so I could capture these images
as soon after her birth as possible.
This crocheted blanket was a gift from Matt’s mother,
made for someone else in the family, who passed it over to Matt & Kim.
Falon’s grandma is watching over her from Heaven now.
What a treasure…
Matt, Kim, & Falon,
I really do appreciate you choosing me to take these photos
during such a special, life-changing time.
Your daughter is going to be so loved, so happy in a peaceful home,
where art and literature (and really cool movies) are celebrated.
I see her growing up to be a pretty awesome kid!
For now, however, enjoy your darling little baby girl, every moment.
Even at 4:00 AM.
