I had the pleasure of photographing Marjorie last month for her maternity photos and now Baby Jacob is here! Marjorie was due in the middle of June so when she let me know Jacob had arrived early on May 28th, it was a welcomed surprise; I couldn’t wait to capture all of his newness and Jacob obviously couldn’t wait to see the world!
Those first weeks home are so immensely special. All of the love (and exhaustion) that fills the air after a new family member arrives is unlike anything else. I made my way down to Encinitas ten days after Jacob’s birth to document this beautiful moment in time at their home where it was all taking place.
The morning was filled with a lot of memories: Jacob’s daddy loves vintage automobiles so we made sure to get a shot in his classic truck for a Father’s Day surprise, Jacob’s big sister (although still wondering if he was there to stay) loved holding her brother and giving him hugs and Jacob’s mommy was every bit a second-time mom; tired but a pro and so in love.
Thank you, Gustafson Family for the honor of recording your first days as a family with Jacob. I’m so happy for you all and look forward to watching your love grow!
