My beautiful friend, Jessica, had the most beautiful baby girl! I have known Jess throughout so many seasons of our lives, and it’s been so fun to go from high school to college to young professionals and now married with children together. Her husband, Nate, is from Ireland (yes, he comes with the coolest accent!) and as a nod to their precious daughter’s Gaelic heritage, they chose the name Niamh Vera for her. I was dying to meet this little girl, and of course I was out of town when she was born (one day before mother’s day – and on her due date!), but as soon as I got back into town like TEN DAYS later, I couldn’t get over there to see her fast enough! She was a perfect angel for her entire evening newborn session. I love photographing newborns in the summer, because it stays light so late, and I am usually able to get some beautiful outdoor portraits of the family together in addition to the individual newborn portraits inside. I made sure to squeeze in some outdoor photos of Nate & Jess with Niamh in their new back yard, which is just a few miles from my house! Here are just a few of my favorite images from Niamh’s newborn session. I can’t wait to keep photographing this angel as she grows up!
