this morning i had some very special visitors in my newborn photography studio. when i asked grandma if she would be willing to hold her brand new baby granddaughter, she quickly replied “are you kidding me? of course!”. she told me she always holds her close to her heart, and you can tell. the second i captured this newborn photo with grandma my heart skipped a beat. this right here, moments like these, are the exact reason why i still do this job after 16 emotion-filled years as a newborn photographer (8 years as a Boulder baby photographer).
