Baby Mara is 9 months old. Photographing pandemic babies. What a sentence that is right.
I had a chance to work with baby Mara’s parents as I captured their maternity session together. They choose to push back their newborn session and I completely respect that as this season of life has just been overwhelming for absolutely everyone. I recently had the honor to meet that sweet little baby and she was just as gorgeous as anything. So full of smiles and a huge personality. We got together at the same location in Jefferson Park but unfortunately we didn’t last long. Mosquitos were having their annual block party, it seemed. We quickly realized that a change in location would be necessary.
I didn’t mind though because their house, this beautiful bungalow near by was the perfect back drop to finish of this sweet little session. Capturing babies is so joyous. Their eyes are so full of wonder and amazement, every new experience is welcomed with curiosity. I hope that families remember these times of babyhood fondly. I always go back to that quote, “the days are long but the years are short”. In a blink of an eye, Mara is growing! I loved how many photographs were everywhere. I could see baby Mara’s progression from sweet little baby to this little person I met.
