once-in-a-lifetime // Fairclough family

October 1, 2017

when Eleanor was born, I was overwhelmed with the feeling that this time in our life with this special, precious newborn is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Not because we were necessarily done having babies forever, but because these sleepless days getting to know this new baby are so special, and so fleeting. And that time really is once-in-a-lifetime.

Photographing the Fairclough family was once-in-a-lifetime โ€” with their new baby, as a brand-new family, just everything. That fresh, sweet little babe was an absolute angel the entire session, and it was so fun to see how everyone doted on their little Corinne Joy.

PS this isย A FAMILY SESSIONย if you wanna see what one looks like!

    These are beautiful! I’d love to see the “rest” of that last photo on the blog; the one with the older daughter jumping…
    Also, where would I be able to buy a few of these in a digital format? (I’m the grandma.) Love them!
