“Because I could watch you for a single minute and find
a thousand things that I love about you.”
Well there she is folks. Miss Rylynn, the adorable daughter of Heidi & Jordan. Super proud parents & completely smitten with their first daughter. I’ve been able to watch the journey of Heidi & Jordan become boyfriend & girlfriend then husband & wife. And now (& I’m sure they will tell you this themselves), their greatest “titles” of all, mom AND dad. THIS post shares their maternity session & walks you through memory lane, all the way back to when Heidi & I had classes together in college.
And now a daughter fills their arms & love & pride fills their hearts.
These next three pictures…just hold my heart…..too precious for words…
This little beauty kept her eye on me about 98% of the session!
This next one is one of my most favorite pictures I’ve ever taken at a newborn session. Mother & child. Together. Just days old & a whole new world unfolding for both of them each day. I’ll never get used to the fact that I’m asked to capture these sacred moments.
This was a sweet & tender, unplanned moment…LOOK at the love in Heidi & Jordan’s faces!!!
This beautiful quilt was handmade by a family member. TOO special.
SO much love put into her room!
At the beginning of this year, I shared all the changes that I was making in Nomi Photography. You can read more about that HERE, but the gist of that blogpost shares how motherhood has changed me as a photographer. In that post, I wrote this sentence:
I want to help that dad remember what it’s like to hold his little girl’s hand before it can no longer fit into his.
My eyes teared up while editing this photo & realizing that phrase came into fruition through this special newborn session with such special people.
And I might add, this little gal was COMPLETELY content to be held & loved on her daddy!
If you go back & look at Heidi & Jordan’s Maternity Session, you’ll see how we were able to recreate some special photos. LOVE photographing families inside their homes where they do life & love.
So happy for you Doddek Family. Happy beyond words. I ask for peace & health around your little family. The Lord is GOOD & I can’t wait to see your journey continue as a family.
All my love,
