Jordan Maunder has shot all of the newborn photos for my kids. Before I knew her, I had hired a different photographer to take David’s newborn photos, and this woman took them, edited them, but then never gave them to me. Thankfully she’s out of business and has also been taken to court by clients whose WEDDING she shot and never handed over the photos. So upon realizing I would never receive the newborn photos of my first baby, I became desperate to hire someone else to take them! When I browsed through Jordan’s website and saw how beautiful her work was, I basically asked her, “when is the soonest you can get here?!” She showed up within the next 48 hours and took amazingly perfect photos of David.
We became fast friends and she has been my go-to photographer for anything for the past 4 1/2 years. And more than that, she’s like a sister to me, so other than saving the day when I was upset that I’d never have newborn photos of my firstborn, she’s a dear friend and my kids love her too. The boys were in school the morning we took these but we have family photos planned for this month!
Jordan came over a week after Emily was born to take these photos and, as expected, they are perfect. I thought I’d share just a few of my favorites here!
Can you believe all of Emily’s dark hair? David was bald and Luke had some hair but it wasn’t nearly this dark or thick!
The pink blanket she’s wrapped in below was knit by my dad’s mom. All my of grandparents are deceased but I so wish they could have met my kids!
I will forever be thankful for these photos. This season of newborn life can feel long and hard at times, but it’s truly over so quickly. I know I will look back at these and wish I could return to this stage!
