There are so many important little moments and details that go unnoticed in the first few days after a baby is born. It is filled with a ton of firsts... first feeding, snuggle, visitor... on and on and on. I may be a little biased, but I feel like it is all so important, that it should be documented ;).
I love when my families opt for birth photography, or a Fresh 48 session, because it gives that family to document some of those firsts. I especially love documenting "the calm AFTER the storm". Everyone is really tired, but even more in love with their newest family member. There is a flurry of visitors, and everyone is so blissful. Who wouldn't want to be around that?!
I arrived to Essentia Health | St. Mary's Hospital to meet little Henrik for the first time... and can I just say that the little cheeks on this handsome fella were out of this world! I was having a hard time resisting the urge to just grab him and cuddle him! I powered through though, as I knew he was going to be back at our Duluth studio in a couple days for his newborn photo session! I love this little family!
