Pamela, Cole & Logan
There were several wonderful things about this session and I wish they could all be this soulful and honest.
It was an early smoky morning in Golden B.C. when I showed up to photograph Pamela, Cole, and their six-week old baby, Logan. They are originally from Golden and came home to visit their parents and escape the city for a few days. Pamela and I are old friends since elementary school and it was special to reconnect over a photography session.
Pamela and Cole didn’t say if they felt like natural parents, but the way they moved and watched their baby it would seem so. The two of them worked together as a team in a constant sway of snuggling, changing, and feeding little Logan. There were a few moments where the new parents snuck in a quick kiss or hand-hold in between tending to their little one. Everything about Pamela, Cole, and Logan was very real.
There were no apologies for his tears or fussy moments, there didn’t need to be. These are moments that come and go and you never know when the last time you soothe your little baby will be. My heart swells knowing that Logan is going to grow every day and that Pamela and Cole now have their beautiful memories documented forever and ever.
For part of their newborn family photography session, Pamela and Cole held their baby in the same spot that they exchanged vows last Summer. I told them to take a moment to really sink into this moment of holding Logan where, only a short time ago, they were committing to becoming a family. The three of them seemed to melt together and hold each other as they thought of where they were at this point in their lives. It might be a year before they come back to this place and Logan will be running around the yard exploring instead of sleeping squished between his parents.
As I said, it was a session full of honest love. Thank you, Pamela and Cole, for being so open and genuine throughout your newborn family photography session.
