LOWERY FAMILY NEWBORN
When I met up with Chris and Emily this summer in Baltimore, I knew we’d be a great fit almost immediately! We met up in Canton to grab a coffee and just get to know each other before their big newborn session in the fall. This is something I highly suggest for those looking for newborn photographers because you want the person coming into your home to photograph your newborn baby to not feel like a stranger.
Emily, Chris and I hit it off right away! They brought their adorable Goldendoodle Winston which obviously got me instantly talking about my Goldendoodle – Winnie! Don’t tell Winnie but their dog Winston is definitely way better behaved, which is saying a lot because Winnie is pretty good! The rest of our morning we spent just walking around and chatting as if we were old friends that had known each other for years. We talked about our love for our Virginia universities, they went to Tech but connected with me through a mutual JMU friend!
What is especially neat about these two is their love for adventure and willingness to try anything! They’ve traveled all over the place together and even lived abroad for a while. It seems like they have a full bucket of life experiences and best of all I bet has been becoming parents and they are settling into this role brilliantly.
I got to their Falls Church townhome and immediately felt comfortable. Winston greeted me at the door and little baby Nora was asleep so peacefully, ready for her photoshoot. I knew they’d make me feel so comfortable and I knew they’d be just as sweet and easy-going as they were this summer but best yet, they are naturals as parents. Little baby Nora slept the entire time during her newborn session and only stirred briefly for a diaper change. They both watched in admiration of her and her sweet little expressions. The way she started to stick her tongue out or how she lifted her arms up to sleep with them up by her face. She is strong already and sweet and it was a pleasure to get to spend a brief time with them in this most precious stage of becoming a new family of three.
Emily and Chris – I loved working with you guys and especially loved seeing you both as parents and meeting your sweet Nora. Congratulations! She’s lovely!
