Life with Four Littles | Newborn Session | Jacksonville Newborn Photographer

Oh my goodness…this in-home newborn session was SO MUCH FUN! Baby Jack was born at home, peacefully surrounded by his family, and I came to photograph his newborn session a little while later. He was absolutely fawned over by his big brother and two big sisters. They couldn’t keep their sweet little hands off of him! His mama, Ashley, beamed over her children and looked beautiful. She shared her thoughts with me about life as a new mom of four!

I’m excited to announce a new project of mine!

This family. From our first consultation (which ended up with them feeding me dinner and us talking birth and photography into the wee hours of the night), I knew that their birth was going to be special.
