Portland Family Photography: New Baby Lydia

This was such a special family session! Karly and Jeff were having their daughter and wanted to document their son meeting the new baby for the first time, only a few hours after birth. Aren’t brand-new babies just magical and miraculous? I was so excited for them and their new addition. It was truly an honor to witness and photograph them in their first moments as a family of four.

Congratulations to this sweet family! Thank you for allowing me to photograph this special day!

You can see he was nervous at first, but he was quickly smitten! He loved looking at little Lydia, and touching her face or hands. She opened her eyes and looked right at him when he spoke! What a wonderful bond they will have.

She was very upset to be taken away from mama to be given her very first swaddle! However, then she calmed down, and loved being snuggled by her family. And her family loved snuggling her! Can you blame them? Here’s daddy and grandma, looking incredibly thrilled with the precious new baby.
