Oh my. Where do I start with Miss Reagan’s blog? The whole photo shoot was crazy, insane, beautiful, perfect, and amazing for me. This little one is the first baby for one of my dearest college girlfriends. Photographing a good friend’s newborn is always an honor…and a treat. You get to meet their little one, you can love on and smooch the baby while you’re photographing them (HUGE bonus), and you get to spend time with your friend and their family. It’s always a win-win.
The “win” this time was much bigger. My friend flew me to Cleveland, OH to photograph Reagan!!It’s the first time I have ever been flown in for a photo session and I don’t know when I would have gotten to meet Reagan otherwise. Moving away is hard at times, especially when a good friend has a new baby. I am blessed to have gotten to meet her while she was so tiny.
She was worth the plane, the trains, and the automobiles to get to her. (The trip there involved a car accident for me and is a long and slightly funny story for another time ;).)
I am very fortunate to have friends in the photography business all over the United States, and even in Canada and other countries. It’s an awesome network of professionals that grows and expands as you attend in person workshops. I happened to meet Sarah Edelman of Thomas & Thomas Photography at a workshop in Ohio about 3 or 4 years ago. She very graciously opened her studio to me while I was in Cleveland! All of the posed shots in this blog were taken in her beautiful studio in Bay Village, Ohio. (I will post a link to her website at the end of this post!!). I am so thankful for her friendship and for her help with this session!
I was very out of my element! Everything was different! I shot in my friend’s beautiful home, which I don’t normally do. And the studio was not mine. The studio lighting and equipment were not mine…but we made it all work!
I am in love with Reagan, sweet baby Rae as we lovingly call her, and her photos!
I can’t thank this family enough for insisting it was me taking Reagan’s photos. Indescribable feeling.
Enjoy a peek at Reagan’s session!!
