Oakland Fresh 48 Documentary Lifestyle Photography Session | The Harris Family
I met the Harris Family during their Family Maternity Session in San Francisco. Then a family of 3, just 3 weeks later they welcomed their first son. There’s something unique about second time parents. They are calm, collected, and silly. Unless there is a special circumstance, they have a “been there, done that” mentality and really know how to sit back and enjoy the ride. What amazed me the most about this family was how incredibly connected they all were.We were lucky to have one Grandmother at their Fresh 48 Photography Session in Oakland who was able to love on each little one and make the frames with her in them that much more memorable.
Fresh 48 Sessions are filled to the brim with emotions from everyone involved. It is a tender time of change and walking into a session is always full of awe and authenticity. Connections are not hard to coax in a Fresh 48! We began this session by photographing baby in his bassinet. He was incredibly calm and happy so I took as much advantage of that as I could!
We were then able to get Grandma and sister in the frame. Meeting your sibling for the first time can never be summed up in words but it was easily documented on this little one!
Newborn Photography Sessions are some of my favorites but to be photographed in the space where you were born is unique and never able to be recreated. Special thanks to the Harris Family for inviting me in!
