Welcome to the World, Henry Wills
When I reentered the world of freelance photography, I always said I wouldn’t do newborn sessions. Then I had two babies of my own and learned how preciously fast those early weeks go. It’s a blur of heart exploding, sleep deprived, frustrating, blissfully tearful joy - and you forget, so quickly, how hard and wonderful it is to introduce life to the world.
Well, I guess it’s safe to say I’ve changed my stance. Being let into a newborn household to capture the fresh moments is such a privilege. I know too well how hard it is to open your door during those times, especially to a stranger. But it’s also a gift: The hushed set-up, careful cooing and whispered cues bring me back to fleeting moments with my own children.
Thank you to the Loth family for inviting me in to photograph sweet Henry.
