Baby Annemarie | Charlottesville Newborn Photographer

Being a newborn photographer in Virginia is truly one of the most wonderful blessings. I love getting to snuggle sweet babies and create beautiful images for their parents, and I also love getting to meet new families that I might not have the opportunity to meet otherwise. Though newborn sessions can be physically demanding for a photographer, I always walk away feeling refreshed, energized, and extra thankful for my job. This was especially true after precious Annemarie's newborn session this past fall.

Annemarie is desperately loved by two big brothers, her beautiful mommy, and her incredible daddy. What made her newborn session different from many that I have done is that although Annemarie's daddy would have loved with all his heart to be there, he couldn't because he is serving our country through his military deployment on the other side of the world. I do not take it lightly that Annemarie's parents trusted me with these images - which would be some of the first images that Annemarie's daddy would see of his sweet daughter that he had not yet gotten to meet. And I can't even begin to describe the strength of Annemarie's mom, who works and takes care of her three amazing children with no family nearby.

It was also so sweet to see how much Annemarie's big brothers absolutely adore her! They were the most wonderful big brothers, so full of love for the beautiful mom and sister.

Annemarie's session was just wonderful. I am so grateful for this amazing family and all the sacrifices that each one of them makes to serve our country. I am so thrilled to be photographing each of Annemarie's three, six, nine, and twelve month milestones, as well! The first birth session will be especially exciting, as Annemarie's daddy with be home from deployment, so I will get to photograph their entire family together!
