It’s not often that I get excited to write a blog post, but I am so in love with this session that I decided to post it early! Last Monday I had the incredible privilege of doing a “Fresh 48” session for our friends, the Cali family. It was easily the most extraordinary session I’ve ever done and I just can’t wait to share the images with you!
We have known Jeremy, Tricia, and their kids for three years. When they announced that they were expecting their fourth child, we were, of course, so excited for them! But when Tricia asked me if I would be willing to take photos in the hospital, I was a bit surprised! It is such a privilege to be part of any birth, so I was completely honored that they would ask me to capture a part of theirs!
Baby Gracie’s session was more of a “Fresh 48″ session (where photos are taken in the hospital after the baby has already been born) than a newborn session. Since Tricia was having a c-section, she knew the family wouldn’t be able to see her or baby Gracie until she was out of recovery. They asked if I would capture the family as they met Gracie for the first time.
In addition to the siblings, both sets of grandparents were able to come to the hospital. It was such a joy-filled environment as they waited to meet the baby and as they each got to hold her for the first time. Tricia and Jeremy also decided to keep Gracie’s middle name a secret until she was born. When they announced her full name it was particularly emotional, as she shares the middle names of both grandmothers!
Gracie’s birthday was incredibly special and I can say for sure that she is immeasurably loved!
