Brady Maverick Kuhn - Newborn Session

There's something magic about watching a husband and wife be transformed into a mom and a dad. Mysteriously, it happens all at once, but gradually, at the same time. When you hear that first cry in the delivery room, you become a mom, instantaneously. Yet it can take years to grow fully into our role. 

Just a few short weeks ago, Karli and Michael welcomed the most handsome little boy into their family, Brady Maverick. And boy are they filling their new roles as mom and dad gracefully. In our time together I learned that some of Baby Brady's favorite things include: being swaddled in his mama's arms, slobbery kisses from his English bulldog big sister (Lucy), time in the man cave with Dad, and lots of white noise. 

 Karli said that one of the things that made her connect with my work is that I included pets in family shots. And yes, I LOVE animals. It's part of the reason I like to photograph newborns in their home - I get to include the whole family!

I was so glad that Karli decided to have her hair and makeup done prior to our session. It's never a necessity, but I think new moms have earned a little pampering and confidence boost after giving birth! Karli confessed that she had been up ALL night - and look how incredibly gorgeous she looks!

Welcome to the world sweet Brady!
