Harper's mommy contacted me when she was a few months pregnant, knowing that her husband would be deployed for Harper's birth and wanting to capture every moment for him. We met and instantly felt at ease with each other. Birth photography is a very intimate and personal decision and I love for moms who consider it to meet with me to be sure we will be a good fit. I knew that this was going to be fabulous...and it was. Harper Anne was brought into the world surrounded with love - her mommy was supported by an amazing doula and her husband's mother and sister who made sure to get Daddy on teh phone so he wouldn't miss a moment! At the bottom of the post, you can click to see her entire birth story!
We also captured Harper's adorable cheeks at her newborn session the next week. Enjoy a peek at Harper Anne!
Here is what her mommy said about her experience with Kimberlin Gray Photography: "I'm so glad I invested in a birth photography and newborn photography session with Kimberlin Gray Photography. The biggest motivation to do it was my husband being deployed overseas and missing the birth of our daughter, Harper, and the first 2 months of her life. I knew that time was going to go by really fast and she was going to change so much. It was important to us to capture the sweet newness of her beautifully.
I was nervous about taking Harper out of the house for her newborn photography session within the first week of her life. But once I arrived at the studio with sleeping baby in tow, Amanda gently took charge. She settled me onto her comfy couch and then proceeded to work with Harper. Mom and baby were quite comfortable the whole time! Watching Amanda work was great. She not only was great with Harper but she is a bit of a perfectionist which is something my husband and I can really appreciate."
