In my humble opinion, newborn sessions don’t have to be complicated to be swoon worthy. As seen through the lens of Eroula Dimitriou photography, this couple opted for an intimate day filled with natural lighting of their home. The love is palpable, the style impeccable and this newborn session epitomizes everything a session should.
From the Mommy:
That Thursday night at 3am my water broke and we were off to the hospital. I was only 34 weeks but the doctors felt confident Sam was ready and they were not going to stop my labor. 10 hours later, I had a dream delivery, pushing for only 20 minutes and out came my beautiful, healthy boy. Unfortunately I had a difficult after birth that resulted in a return trip back to the hospital and an extended hospital stay. 7 days later, I was able to go home as a family with my husband, David and our son. Thankfully Sam only did a short stint in the NICU. despite being 6 weeks premature. Upon arriving home, my husband and I wanted to schedule a photo shoot of our new family home together. We had gone through so much, we wanted someone special who could capture the happiness and love we felt. Upon the recommendation of a friend, we hired Eroula as our photographer. Not only is she incredibly talented but she was so patient and gentle with Sam. She not only captured the great posed shots we were hoping for but some of the sweet un-expectant moments that happened throughout the day – a laugh between my husband and I, my Mom and I undressing Sam for a shot and even some really tasteful photos of me nursing.
Everyone says to enjoy every minute because it goes so fast. This photo shoot was a great way to capture our then 14 day old.
From newborns and maternity to celebrations and everyday moments, I capture and tell your story through my lens. Taking pictures was never an option for me. It was an essential part of documenting life. Since I was a kid I was always enraptured each time I had the opportunity to go through my moms old photos. I looked at them with the same fascination each and every time as if it were the first. I got my first camera when I was very little–a polaroid. It was so much fun snapping away and creating images. Growing up I would take photos all the time of myself and my friends–we would walk around NYC and take pictures all day for fun. My passion for photography always lingered but once I had children my insatiable need to document everything turned my passion into a hunger to document more beautifully and artfully. When I started shooting professionally I became so fulfilled each time I captured special moments for families–whether it be a time in their lives, the joy at their events, the expressions on their children’s faces, or the beauty of their everyday. While their memories aren’t mine, I can look at the photos I take of them and feel really happy they have a beautiful image to always look at and hold on to those feelings.
