Lehigh Valley Lifestyle Newborn Photographer: Welcome, Baby Athena!

The Goug's. Oh, how I love them. I've been so fortunate to document much of Varvara's first year milestones and now capturing her little sister Athena. How lucky I am! What I adore about this family is their love. I adore it about every family, don't get me wrong. But I think because I've had Megan and John in front of my lens so many times, they have no nerves and are 100% themselves. They share sweet kisses and "I love you"s throughout the entire session. Everything you see between this family is totally unprompted and unposed. They're amazing. Sweet baby Athena missed my birthday by 2 days, but I won't hold it against her. She was super alert in the beginning, but with mama's touch, she fell into lala land and we got those precious sleepy baby pictures mama wanted so badly! We then moved into some fun lifestyle pictures which are, by far, my absolute favorite. Capturing those genuine, fleeting moments literally make my heart melt. There are times I'm behind the lens trying to hold back some tears.

Having the opportunity to be the one to be in front of the intimate, once in a life time moments is beyond anything I can articulate. It's so incredibly fulfilling and special. I'm so happy for this sweet family and their beautiful new addition. Their transition into this family of four appears seamless and their love is so unconditional. It's truly beautiful to watch and I can only hope that I captured at least some of it.

Congratulations, Megan, John and big sis Vari! Athena is truly beautiful. Thank you for having me document such a wonderful time in your lives!
