Journee's newborn session was one of the most special sessions I have photographed. Her mama had decided not to be photographed with Journee, but I happened to notice that I had a swaddle wrap that was made of the exact same fabric as the shirt she was wearing. She said that must be a sign and decided to take a few portraits with her baby. Then when we were finished, I asked her what the meaning of the name Journee is. She told me she lost a son a few year ago, and about her journey back to being able to live after that devastating loss. She started a foundation to honor his memory and his giving spirit. She unexpectedly met someone new and fell in love again. And now she has Journee.
This session was so emotional. We laughed, we cried, and we made some beautiful photos for her to have forever.
