Back in April, Jenna and Jeremy reached out to me to ask if I would photograph their son when he made his appearance. I am always honored when I am asked to create portraits for people, but there's something extra special about photographing newborns. It's such a joy and privilege to create photographs that you know will be cherished for a lifetime - if not longer!
After much anticipation, Aiden made his appearance on September 1st! Last week, I drove to Jenna and Jeremy's home in Maryland to meet baby Aiden and to take his newborn portraits. This was a hybrid lifestyle/posed session - I started off by capturing some photographs with Jenna, Jeremy, and Aiden together in their beautiful home, then finished with a few poses that Jenna had requested.
I met Jenna a few years ago, when my brother-in-law played football in the NFL for the Baltimore Ravens. Jenna babysat my niece and nephew, and was always so patient, kind, positive, and fun! I knew that she would make a wonderful mother one day. As soon as I arrived at their home for this photoshoot, I witnessed her and Jeremy's strong connection with Aiden. Baby Aiden was blessed with an incredible set of parents and role models.
Here are a few sneak previews from our time together.
Congratulations again, Jenna and Jeremy! Welcome to the world, Aiden! Big thanks to my mom for keeping me company on the ride, and for helping out during the photoshoot!
