Look at this little baby! It’s a baby! Look at those little legs and feet and don’t even get me started on the cheeks! This was such a fun photo shoot to do. Mainly because I love doing food photography and surprisingly enough, newborns are just like photographing food! You just put them where you want and style them with props. The only difference really is that babies cry and food doesn’t.
In all seriousness I could not be more happy for Kristen and Nick. Candidly, they struggled with fertility for about a year or so. It was heart breaking to watch them go through it, knowing just how much they wanted to start a family of their own. Then at long last when almost all hope was lost, along came baby Billie! Kristen and Nick are such amazing people and I know that baby Billie was born into the most wonderful family who already loves her more than they ever thought they could love anything.
I met Kristen through a mutual friend a few years ago and her and I hit it off right away. Hanging out with her is kind of like a mix between watching Judge Judy and a reality show on Bravo. Ha! Okay, let me explain that a little better. Kristen is a real life bonafide lawyer! How rad is that? She does a lot of work for small business owners through contract review, Trademark applications, and intellectual property protection. She is very well spoken, but has like an attitude about it at the same time and I LOVE it! She gets me all fired up! It’s so fun hanging out with smart people. They know everything.
I was over the moon when she reached out to me to photograph Billie’s newborn pictures. I know this was such a huge deal for them because Billie was such a blessing and they really wanted to capture everything about her in this moment. From her little baby toes to her beautifully decorated nursery. It was truly an honor to photograph these pictures of Billie and although I know nothing about motherhood or parenting, I already know Kristen and Nick are the best at it.
