Bastion Savago - Newborn Session

A few weeks ago, I had the honor of photographing the Savago family and celebrating the birth of their third baby boy, Bastion (affectionately known as "Bash"). This session was special to me because it is the first time that I have photographed THREE newborn sessions for one family.

What a privilege it is to walk beside growing families. Four years ago, Patrick's mom and I bonded at the local library of all places. She was the children's librarian and led the most engaging "story times" for my children. She saw photos that I had taken of my daughter on my mommy blog and was one of the first people to believe in my potential as a photographer. She asked if I would be willing to photograph her first grand baby, Liam. Yes, please!

Four years and three babies later, I'm still showing up and learning from the Savago family. Patrick and Bri's home is a place to lose all pretenses, kick off your shoes, a place to exhale. It's a safe place to sing Moana tunes at the top of your lungs and wrestle on the floor with your brother. A bowl of spilled lucky charms is quickly eradicated by the family's lovable pup, Mika. And laughter runs all the way through it. 

I adore these photos. No "posing" necessary. Just love. 

Liam, Connor, and Bash - you make a terrific trio. The Savago brothers. Has a nice ring to it, huh? I foresee a lifetime of laughter, troublemaking and competitive pranks ahead. 

Bri and Patrick, you are building a family of great significance.
