I’ve had the honor of photographing this family for several years now. Dana connected with me when she was pregnant with her 1st — her baby girl, Quinn. She and TJ invested in The Motherhood Collection which a is a series of sessions including maternity and baby’s 1st year. When I found out that Quinn was going to be a BIG sister I was ecstatic!
I met this sweet family at Tuckahoe Plantation for their maternity portraits. We were then waiting for the sweet arrival of their baby boy, Bauer. I got a text from TJ that they were admitted in the hospital and baby would be here soon! This was technically a Fresh 24 session since I arrived the morning after sweet little was born. The way the beautiful moments unfolded throughout this session was an absolute DREAM!! Dana invested in a Fresh 48 session because she wanted those first moments as a family of 4 documented… especially the look on Miss Quinn’s face when she finally met her little brother.
Baby Bauer was merely 14-hours old when I arrived at Henrico Doctors’ Hospital. So very honored to have been present in the room — capturing all of the sweet unforgettable moments that happened right in front of me. Watching Quinn light up and she walked in the room to meet her baby brother… those first kisses, those first snuggles… The gift of photography is something that I never take for granted. My heart is so full!
