Southern Maine Newborn Session | Portland Wedding + Family Photographer

Southern Maine Newborn Session

They had that look in their eyes – the one that can only be described as pure love for a little human you created and just met for the first time. It was incredible. I entered Zhivka and Romann’s home and could immediately tell the overwhelming love and adoration they had for their sweet little boy, Rhian. Romann was holding Rhian and combing his hair, getting him all ready for his photos, and they were both so very kind and welcoming.

One of my favorite parts of my time with the three of them was when I learned that Romann plays guitar to Rhian before bed every night. So, of course I had him play guitar a little bit to capture what has become a special daily event in their home. In case you’re wondering, Romann is *really* good at playing the guitar!

Rhian is so sweet, and such a little peanut (maybe I’ll think that forever about all babies because James was huge, haha). He was incredibly alert during our time together and I loved being able to get photographs where you can see his beautiful eyes! And his hair!! I couldn’t get enough.

Zhivka and Romann, thank you so much for allowing me into your home to photograph such a tender and sweet new season with your little babe.

You can usually find me adding books to my never-ending “to read” list; challenging myself to do things like not shop for a year; sneaking crispy m+ms from my secret hiding spot so I don’t have to share them with my daughter; and melting over seeing my children smiling at each other.

Oh and I guess I should mention - I’m a seasoned Portland wedding photographer who provides not only kick-ass wedding photos, but also a meaningful and laid-back experience from the time you book to the delivery of your final images. 

I share all things personal, business, tips, and life as a mom and business owner here on the blog!
