Sometimes it is hard to choose my favorite image from each newborn photography session. With Marley’s session that was not the case. I knew the moment that I was done taking her portraits that my favorite would be this image. Nothing is more perfect than a family. Some families are created without many trials along the way. Some family’s are blessed to happen without a wrinkle. Some families have to spend some time as a unit of two before they become three. Those families are always my favorite. There is extra reason for celebration when a baby finally finds it’s way into a childless home. Marley’s parents were beaming ear to ear the whole time I photographed their precious daughter. I am SO excited to share all of her images with them. But this one, is the best. Because it is them, holding in their arms are daughter that is most wanted.
