Almost 2 years ago, I second shot a wedding at Silverbrook Farm. The lead photographer was friends with the couple but lived out of state. A few months ago, the bride Emily reached out to let me know she and Eric were expecting!! Now little William Claiborne is here and he is the sweetest little peanut.

Seeing Emily and Eric again was like seeing old friends. Even though I had only met them once, it’s like we picked up right were we left off. Photographing their wedding, maternity, and newborn was such a fun experience. One of my favorite things about being a wedding photographer is the journey doesn’t end. I get to be a small part of their lives by documenting such important milestone moments like growing their family.

This little peanut was such a champ during his newborn session. He barely made a peep the whole session and let me pose him just the way I wanted. See a few of my favorites images of 9 day old William Claiborne below.
