Ten little fingers and ten little toes! Baby Bennett’s newborn session was a dream to photograph! The Tait family couldn’t be any sweeter or a more attractive family to photograph (bonus!)! Also, I am obsessed with their cozy home and all its decor. The snow on the ground, which could be seen from their living room window, just made it feel that much more warm and welcoming inside. Their Christmas tree helped to make it the perfect setting for a winter newborn session!
I have to say, Bennett is one lucky baby! He was born into such a loving family with a big sister that already adores him. Palladia loved giving him kisses and reading to her baby brother during our time together that day. It was so sweet to watch her admiringly touch his toes and kiss his head. She’s already prepared to protect him from any obstacles that come his way!
Newborn sessions are one of my favorite sessions to photograph. I love the celebration of new life. As a photographer, I get to witness firsthand, the awe and unconditional love a family has for this little being that suddenly has rocked their world in the best possible way. It’s like being a little fly on the wall, as I observe them while they interact so intimately with this new little being. I always leave feeling so happy and so connected to the families by the end of these sessions. After having photographed them for a few hours in their own homes with their brand new baby, it would be impossible not to feel a little attached!
The Tait family’s hearts collectively grew the day Bennett was born and brought into their lives, and I have no doubt that Bennett will be just as sweet and loving as his big sister, Palladia! I cannot wait to watch him grow up and form his own personality! I’m also excited to watch Palladia’s admiration for her new baby brother grow as we hopefully continue to photograph the Tait family over the years! Taits, thank you for letting us share in your joy with you!
