Let me set the stage for these newborn lifestyle photos… The year was 2014 and two diehard Michigan fans got married. Yours truly was there to capture the magic. We went to the Big House, they snuggled, they said “I do”, Law Quad champagne toasts were had and what started off as clients ended up as friends.
Fast forward to this past winter when Meghann’s name ended up in my inbox telling me that Meg and Justin were going to become parents! I can’t tell you how excited I am for them. They are both very patient, kind and super chill. They are going to make amazing parents to Tillie, I’m sure of it.
A few weeks ago I met at their house to get a few images of Meghann’s bump. They didn’t know what the baby would be, but they were ready to meet their little one. However, I’m not sure their sweet baby angel pitt, Joey knew what she had in store.
On July 14, little Tillie Jane came into the world. Today I was able to spend a little time with her and her parents. Just as predicted they were calm, cool and collected even though Tillie wasn’t in the mood for pictures. Joey was the protective big sister, making sure that Tillie was okay and the stage loud thing I kept putting over my face wasn’t going to hurt her little sister.
It has been an absolute joy being able to capture Meghann + Justin’s big moments. From engagement, wedding, maternity and now newborn, I’m beyond thankful that this is what I get to do – capture the happiest days of people’s lives. It’s one of the best things about being a wedding and Maternity Photographer.
Here are a few of my favorite images from their maternity and newborn sessions.
