Do you ever have photos taken that you think are absolutely perfect? I still get the chills when I see photos that tell such a great story! My latest perfect (to me!) photos were not of a client, they were of my new niece; I'm so in love! I had the ability to quarantine for the first few weeks of Maisie's life so I could go visit and be an extra pair of hands while they were adjusting to becoming a family of three. During these uncertain Covid times I was so thankful for this opportunity to get to snuggle my new niece.
I live just south of Lansing, and my sister Lila and brother-in-law Ryan live in Holland. It's just far enough to make a full day (or overnight) trip out of, but close enough that it is easily possible. During our second visit we got some newborn photos of Maisie! She had lots of cute little faces for us.
I have been looking forward to these photos for a long time; I photographed their announcement and maternity, but due to Covid was pretty nervous we wouldn't be able to see her. Thankfully I was able to work from home to avoid contact with others, and still got a Covid test and masked up to be sure; worth every second! You can't get those first few weeks back, and I'm so glad I got those noob snuggles in while I could.
