Newborn photography is not my forte because I typically just do a lot of outdoors natural light pictures. However, I constantly preach to my high school English and Creative Writing students to go out of their comfort zones, so figured I should practice what I preach… or, well, teach. When my good friend Ashley texted me about newborn photos on the day she went into labor, I told her I would do it even though it was a little bit out of my good ol’ trusty comfort zone. Plus, sister was about to be out of her comfort zone with pushing something out of a not so fun area; and the good Lord knows you really shouldn’t say no to a woman in labor. Thank you, Ashley and Lucas, for allowing Baby Morgan to be my muse for newborn photos. I am thankful for sweet friends and their support and love of allowing me to do what I love- to capture real life glimpses of time standing still, moments we can hold onto for the rest of our lives.
Oh, and Ashley is a graphic designer and Lucas can build basically anything. He built the bed you’ll see in the photos, and Ashley’s house is filled with photographs that she paired with custom frames Lucas built. There’s too much creativity in that house. Cough, cough… I wish they would open a store. I would buy everything in it. Just saying.
