A Baby Worth Waiting for | In-Home Newborn Session | Jacksonville Birth & Newborn Photographer


Meet Opal! This beautiful, bright-eyed girl is so loved by her mommies, who glowed with love and pride through our whole newborn session together. They were gracious enough to welcome me into their Jacksonville home and to share a few thoughts about new motherhood with me!

“Opal is our little miracle, we were in love with her before we even saw her. We had been trying for a baby for years and now that we have Opal we know she is exactly what we had been waiting for...we joke that we will be in trouble as she grows up and learns how much we wanted her!”

“We were extremely lucky to have an amazing delivery experience, although Kristin was in labor for 38 hours! The moment she came out we were filled with love, she was perfect. Our first thoughts were pure happiness and that she was so small! We had been told she was almost 8lbs, but she came out 5 lbs 12 oz and could not be more perfect. We just wanted to hold her in our arms and make sure she knew how loved she was.”

“From that moment on every little move she made made us smile. Bringing her home was the best day, it felt so good to have her in our own home and meet her furry brothers who also fell in love with her and loved being close to her.”

“We were so relieved to have her home, the tiredness did not even phase us. Opal has been a very good baby, getting up in the middle of the night she eats and goes right back to sleep. We take turns feeding her throughout the night and rocking her to sleep and love every moment.”

“We are so proud of her already! Everyday she does something new, whether it’s a smile, new facial expression or discovering a new toy. It is so amazing to see her grow and discover the world. We take her on outings, read her stories we read her in the womb and are amazed by her recognition of our voices.

We are so incredibly grateful for our little miracle and love her more every day!”


Congratulations, Tina and Kristin! Opal is just perfect and you are the sweetest little family!
