baby esme & her mama

1 week old Esme was a little love with that dark hair - my favorite! - but it was her mama that amazed me.  No mother - before or since - has walked herself downtown to get some lunch and then catch a bus home after her newborn session!  And that is just one week post par-tum.
Mama arrived with her partner and toddler son for family portraits.  Then, when big brother was ready to nap, dad took him home to leave us some girl-time.  It was a great session, with Esme falling asleep towards the end, giving mama and I time to get to know one another and collectively ohhh and ahhh over a sleeping Esme.

And then I gawked some more as mama packed her sleepy baby in her kangaroo shirt and took off trekking up our Rossland hills.  This girl is going to learn great things from her fierce mama!

Speaking of Rossland, a select few Spring Mini photo sessions are still available for next week. While not applicable to newborns, they are great for older babies, kids, mama & me, maternity, engagement and small product.  Contact FRESH for details.
