Ohhh goodness, if you are reading on this Friday you are in for a treat. Last week, I got to meet sweet, little, perfect, new Sampson. I photographed his parents just a few weeks before (see here!) just a year after photographing them in the bridal party of one of my 2016 brides. There was something that was just so sweet and natural about this session. Not a lot of fuss, just a sweet newborn, his adoring parents, his first BFF (his dog, of course!), and me out in the country of their beautiful log cabin home. It just felt so real and lovely. As an all natural light gal, there are few things I love more than when I get to photograph newborns outside, and all the elements were perfect for it this day. I’d say Sampson is definitely following in his daddy’s steps- he is definitely an outside boy! Meet handsom Sampson!
His hair!! He had so much of it! I just could not love these more…he is SO sweet! Favorite! This family! Favorite. Jake and Cara have melted into their new roles so seamlessly and beautifully. Kara, you are such a beautiful mama! I hope you guys love these favorites. Sweet Sampson, I loved meeting you! You DEFINE #babyfever!! 🙂 🙂 Full gallery coming soon!
