This newborn session was more poignant than most.  Baby Asher was welcomed into a loving, amazing family last week with a mom and dad, grandparents, and two doting big sisters.  His older brother, though, was not there to welcome him.  His older brother passed away at the age of 5 weeks.  Drew may be gone, but he is far from forgotten — we incorporated several elements in Asher’s session that were a nod to Drew, knowing that Drew will always be an important part of this family even as they move forward without him.  Blue for Drew’s hearts — a symbol the family has adopted as a way to remember and include Drew as they go about their daily life, and a rainbow wrap because Asher is this family’s rainbow baby — the hope that comes after a storm.

With older sisters in elementary school, I also had a lot of fun incorporating their ideas into the session — they were so excited about getting to take pictures with their baby brother and were just a joy to work with.

One of the things about newborn sessions I love is that they are flexible — the day of Asher’s session, it was beautiful and quite warm (ok, full-on August heat!) so when mom asked if we could go outside to their backyard, it was perfect!  We got to use the garden, as well as some of the woods behind the house!

Here are a few of my favorites — I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed working with this amazing family!
