Jacksonville NC Newborn Photographer | Emma

Little newborn smiles are my FAVORITE!!! I get so giddy inside and they bring such a big smile to my face. I can’t help but imagine that Emma is dreaming of the day she gets to meet her Daddy for the first time!
 
I have such a great respect and awe for the strength of the military wives who have babies while husbands are away! I believe it takes a special kind of strength. I have moms who try to play it off as just doing what they have to, but I don’t know if I would have that kind of strength and outlook. Ladies I look up to you more than you know!
 
I had the pleasure of working with Cameron and Elizabeth before he deployed for an early Maternity session since he would be leaving soon. You can see that session HERE! I’ve expressed before how much I absolutely love seeing families grow. When I am given the opportunity to do maternity sessions followed by the newborn session, I feel complete!! I am so excited when I get to work with pregnant mama’s and I have so much anticipation for their little one to arrive. It is the icing on the cake when I get to meet and photograph their bundle of joy!!
 
Since Emma’s Daddy is away serving our country, Elizabeth told me she wanted to do a newborn session as a surprise and send the images to Cameron for Father’s Day. I had to hold off on sharing this session for a little while so I didn’t ruin the surprise, but I’m so excited to share them with you now! What a lovely gift for a Dad who has been called away during such a special time. I hope these images of his beautiful little girl are as precious to him as I imagine they would be.
