Baby Walter | Fresh 48

Richmond Fresh 48 Photographer

This. This session made my little photographer heart shout with joy. Over the past two years, we’ve watched the sweet Jabs family grow from two to three and most recently, from three to four. After 41 weeks and 12+ hours of labor, this strong mama gave birth to sweet baby Walter. And I was beyond blessed and so honored to have been invited to document the moment this little guy took his first breath.

What an incredible experience it is to hear a baby cry for the first time! There was so much excitement and joy filling the room!

The following day, I headed back to the hospital to take a few fresh 48 photos – and let’s just be real, I needed to cuddle this sweet babe. At this point, big brother Abe still hadn’t met little Walt (Jabs family of four photos to come!), since the hospital had a strict visitor policy to help prevent the spread of the flu. So instead, we opted for a few intimate moments with mom, dad, and new baby. Be prepare to pick your melting heart up off the floor, my friend.
