Baby Nell {Columbia newborn photographer}

There's something so magical about newborn sessions that have always made them a favorite of mine.  Spending time with a family that has just brought home it's newest member, when everyone is getting to know each other, figuring out the new normal, where most days are only spent sleeping and eating and establishing a routine... this is such a special time and I love having the opportunity to document it.  Thank you sweet Hoey family for having me, y'all are the best, and I hope to see you again soon! columbia_sc_wed_photographer50columbia_sc_wed_photographer51columbia_sc_wed_photographer52columbia_sc_wed_photographer53columbia_sc_wed_photographer54columbia_sc_wed_photographer55columbia_sc_wed_photographer56columbia_sc_wed_photographer57columbia_sc_wed_photographer58columbia_sc_wed_photographer59columbia_sc_wed_photographer60columbia_sc_wed_photographer61columbia_sc_wed_photographer62columbia_sc_wed_photographer63columbia_sc_wed_photographer64columbia_sc_wed_photographer65columbia_sc_wed_photographer66columbia_sc_wed_photographer67columbia_sc_wed_photographer68columbia_sc_wed_photographer69columbia_sc_wed_photographer70

Canaan :: Newborn {Columbia SC baby photographer}

Last week I had the pleasure and honor of photographing my dear friends and their sweet baby boy.  It has been such a joy to watch them grow into a family of three and enter this incredible world of parenthood.  They are some of the sweetest souls you will ever come across and I am so grateful for their enduring friendship over the last few years. I'm still trying to pretend it's not real that they're preparing to move to Europe.  Even after just visiting them and seeing their house full of boxes… it can't be happening that some of my most cherished friends (in photography and life) won't be meeting me for coffee or pizza or conversation that fills my soul.  That day is coming sooner than I hope and I will miss them dearly.  Oh, so dearly.

Sweet Canaan, you are so loved, little man.  And about to embark on your greatest adventure with the greatest parents God could have given you.
