It’s hard to believe that it was almost four years ago that I took the Tenney family’s first newborn portraits with Will. You can see that blog post here! Because of COVID, being pregnant with Finley and living in Baltimore, I wasn’t able to take their second son’s newborn pictures. Now they are welcoming their sweet newest addition – a GIRL and I was thrilled to be asked to take these images for them!Read More »
Baby Girl Coiner
Just a few months ago the Coiner family welcomed this sweet sweet baby girl into their lives. Katie heard of me through a good friend of hers that I happened to work with at school and I was so excited to take on this job for her newborn photos. I love newborn sessions and there is something so magical about photographing first-time parents. I love the sweetness, the way they breathe in that newborn smell and soak up this moment, frozen in time.
Katie and Josh met in college at UVA which gave us something instant in common. Now Sterling and I didn’t go to UVA but Sterling is from Charlottesville and is a big UVA fan. It’s an exciting year to be a UVA fan with the two big National Championships and their football team is actually doing pretty well! Katie and Josh moved up to Baltimore and into this great townhouse in Canton, complete with an exposed brick wall and stacked decks – a classic. Their place is right near a large park and I loved hearing how they go on walks through the park together. The best topic of conversation though was definitely getting to hear all about Katie’s job! She works at the Maryland Zoo!! She works with the animals directly handling care, feedings and more! HOW COOL!? Needless to say I asked a lot of questions – I couldn’t contain my curiosity!
Katie and Josh’s sweet addition is already so much bigger than she was in these pictures. She was a dream to photograph, barely stirring as she slept the entire time with just a small short feeding break. I love the soft pink images that feel so dainty but I especially love the images that include the hand-crocheted blanket her Grandmother made.
