Baby Charlotte | Boston Newborn Photography

It was rainy, gray, and cold on the morning of baby Charlotte’s photoshoot.  But all the dreariness disappeared as soon as we stepped through the threshold of her parents’ house.  Once inside, it was warm and calm.  A sweet Charlotte was sleeping blissfully, and her parents were awaiting the return of the extended family, who had come into town to celebrate the baby’s arrival. Although Charlotte is their first child, her parents were interacting with her and each other like they were pros.  It was lovely watching the gentle, quiet confidence they shared as they fed, diapered, rocked, or handed her off to each other.

What I love most about Charlotte’s photoshoot is that we were able capture some of those moments: the delicate way in which her dad held her little feet as he rocked her to sleep, the love with which her mom cradled her as she fed her, the look both parents had for her and each other when they held her in their arms.  I like to think that one day Charlotte will look at these photos and know that from these very first moments, before she was able to talk or sing or dance or even smile, she was already so deeply loved.  And of course she’ll see that even at just over a week old she was already so very beautiful, be it curled up in repose or “wearing” her mother’s wedding jewelry.
