Shep’s newborn photos by Anagram Photo

12 February 2019

The chapter of our family story wherein we introduce a new character would not be complete without photos, and I’m so very grateful to have had our friend Graham on hand to take these ones. His skill, his eye, his sense of light and scale and setting – they’re all exquisite. But what really sets him apart is his kindness and ease, and that goes whether you’re one of his lucky friends or just meeting him for the first time. I am so glad to share his beautiful work with you today! Here, a few of my favorites from Shep’s newborn session.

Once again, my lovely friend Sam was on hand for hair and makeup help. I am almost always FOR hair and makeup help (as I am useless when left to my own devices), but especially a few days after giving birth. Thank you, wonderful Sam!!

We took a few more in Shep’s nursery, and they’re some of my favorites — that post will be up next!

P.S. June’s newborn photos and my baby favorites from the first six weeks

In one of those photos I can already see the hint of the unique smile he has now!

So sweet!! I forget how tiny newborns are, ha! And I couldn’t agree more with what you said about Graham; we did a Spring mini session with him last year and the photos were wonderful! :)
