I tell you, there’s nothing better than getting to document such happy milestones in people’s lives. And I’ve been so honored to get to photograph Kelci and Michael’s happiest moments – from their engagement, to their wedding, to their maternity images and now to their adorable daughter Hallie’s Missoula newborn baby photos!
I was so excited to get to meet miss Hallie, and my word is she ever adorable! Hallie was wide awake and bright-eyed for our session, and so eager to look at the world at only 6 days new! She has got the cutest, softest cheeks (that just demand a little gentle squishing), the sweetest little toes and fingers, and she’s got her parents’ calm and happy demeanor, too!
She was such a little superstar for her newborn session and barely fussed at all. And even when she did, Michael just hummed to her in a low tone and she immediately relaxed, settled down, closed her eyes and blissed out. Pretty amazing to watch that!
It goes without saying I suppose, but part of why I love these sessions is getting to see couples in their new roles as parents. And Kelci and Michael are every bit the superstars that their daughter is too. They can’t take their eyes off of her (I couldn’t either and can absolutely see why!), they work so well together as a team, and they are just over the moon in love with little Hallie. Being able to document that pure love just about melts me completely, and is one of my favorite, favorite things.
Kelci and Michael and Hallie! Thank you again for such a sweet, love-filled session! I’ve said this a bazillion times, but I just loved getting to meet Hallie (seriously, I could barely muster myself to pack up and head out!), and even more so, I loved getting to see you three as the beautiful new family that you are. Thank you so much for inviting me into your lives to document these special new stages – being able to do this for you just makes my heart sing! Congrats, congrats, congrats again to the three of you!
