During the precious few weeks after their daughter’s birth, Maren and Justin welcomed me into their Grass Valley home to photograph the tenderness of their new family. Justin, realizing his dream of becoming a papa, and having two sweet girls to care for. And Maren, with her first daughter, gifted with continuing the motherline of her family. Great grandmother to grandmother, mother to daughter. Maren is aware and honored that she is the mother of a future woman. Their new family radiated warmth & intimacy, and my camera recorded these memories for them to keep. Here is my favorite newborn session.
