Baby Gabriel

Smiles and a happy dance: that was me when I got the message that Rose and Erik were having another little one. They keep the gender of their babies a surprise until delivery. In my opinion, this takes a very patient person(s). That was never my story, but I love when other folks have the will power to do so! Well, this time around it was a boy! Now they have one of each! And big sis Valerie is pretty excited about the whole thing. She has her very own live baby doll.

I went to the van Rooyen home for their lifestyle newborn shoot. I love the natural vibe of these types of sessions. Photographing in one’s home allows the flexibility of ‘going with the flow.’ If an older sibling needs to lay down for a nap, we can do the family portion first. Also, I love the documentary vibe that lifestyle shoots offer. I simply capture what’s happening in the moment. So when Dad read Valerie a book, we stopped to document that sweet little moment. If this is your type of vibe too, let’s chat! I’d love to go over all the fun details with you!
