“Seeing your child for the first time is rarest of occasions. You see glimpses of yourself from the past. The potential of a brand new life happening right before your eyes. And most importantly, that life begins again.”
― J.R. Rim
I've known Rachael for just over two years. We met at work, and around the time we met, she had gotten engaged. Somehow (not because we have the same name), things clicked between us. She had a wedding photographer already picked out, but since they lived in a different state, she chose me to do her engagement photos, then recommended me to her cousin for their wedding photographer, and when she announced that she was pregnant (right before I left that job to pursue something more along my career path), she said that she wanted me to do her newborn photos, I, of course, was already excited about that.
Bailey Rae was born on July 21st 2017. At 7 pounds exactly, and 20 inches long, she's the perfect little bundle of joy. I went over to photograph her about a month after she was born, and after fussing for a little, she quieted down and fell asleep, but not before I got a few shots with her beautiful blue eyes wide open.
I am in love with these images, and even more in love with this beautiful family. Congratulations, and enjoy the years ahead, Rachael and Sean!
