Welcome, Isla Girl
It seems fitting that today I would share this session. I am currently on spring break and have been soaking up every second with my sweet girl and spending time with friends. Today, E and I went and walked with this beautiful mommy and sweet little Isla. Mom, Katie, looked amazing for having just had a baby then and today. The second reason that it is perfect I share this today is because Little Miss Isla is one month old today.
I first met these gorgeous parents when I started working with Katie 4 year ago. The next year, she got engaged. I was beyond thrilled and flattered to have her ask me to photograph her engagements and wedding. Then this past year, she shared with me that they were expecting and already knew they wanted me to capture their newborn baby girl.
Isla was 5 days old during our session and couldn't have been more perfect or angelic if she had tried. She only cried once in the several hours I was there. Which I guess was her way of apologizing for putting mom through a long labor. But good things are always worth the wait. She was just a little bundle of snuggles weighing in just a little over 6 lbs. It was so deeply moving, as it is with any newborn session, to see these beautiful people experience this unconditional love for the first time. I really tried to capture this new love that was growing all around this new family: each of them for the baby and also a deeper love for one another.
Congratulations to Katie and Ryan!
