I absolutely fell in love with this family the moment I met them at their daughter's fresh 48 session (which can be viewed here), and so I was so excited about seeing them again at their newborn session a few weeks later. They were just as sweet and welcoming as the day I met them at the hospital (even making me a to-go plate for lunch - thanks again y'all)! Apparently, precious little Maggie James takes after her gorgeous mama when she was a baby, and loves to stay awake for company. The great thing about lifestyle newborn sessions is that even if baby isn't sleepy, we can keep shooting. Some of my favorite pictures I have ever taken are those in-between moments when mom and dad are soothing their little one. But of course we always end up getting some sleepy shots :)
Thank you, Chancellor family, for being so amazing - opening up both your hospital room and your home to me and giving me the honor of documenting such a memorable time for y'all.
