Baby Amelia {new 72 hospital newborn session}

This was my first New 72 newborn session - in the hospital, taken within the first 72 hours of baby's life. I absolutely loved every second of it!

New 72 sessions are all about documenting baby's first days of life - their little feet, the hospital wristband they wore, their first attempts at eating, snuggles in the hospital bed - all of it. Unlike traditional newborn photo sessions, in a New 72 session there is no posing of baby - it's all about real life and real moments.

Baby Amelia was just so sweet and snuggly, and I loved capturing her first moments in this world. There's just something awe-inspiring and magical about a new baby, and I loved being there to capture that for Amelia and her parents to look back on, many years from now.

Welcome to the world, Amelia.

Morgan + Zach {engaged}

These two are such a laid-back and fun-loving couple. I had a blast working with them during their engagement session, and they were up for anything! :)

We couldn't have asked for better weather for this session in Chattanooga. Clear blue skies with just a few fluffy clouds, and one of the prettiest sunsets I have seen in a while! Thankfully we were able to capture as many beautiful sunset shots as possible, as we walked up to the pedestrian bridge as the sun slowly sank lower, to make the best of the last bit of available light. While I love photos while the sun is still in the sky, my favorite shots are always just right after the sun disappears, and the tones turn cool and moody while the last warmth of the sunset is slowly leaving the sky. That is always my absolutely favorite time for photos. Scroll down and you'll see why!

Thanks for such a fun and wonderful session, Morgan and Zach! I absolutely cannot wait to photograph your upcoming wedding!
