As I expressed in a recent maternity post, Natasha, the beautiful mother of newborn Reagan, is a very important friend in my life. We met like many of my other “babies first year” parents, at a wedding photography consultation. And like with many of my clients, we made an instant connection that has lasted well past the wedding day. Natasha and her husband, Matt, and I have gotten together for wine dates, dinners, parties, and afternoon bbq’s since then. I’m not sure why, but Natasha feels like a friend I’ve had my whole life. Maybe it’s because, like me, she is one of three sisters. Or perhaps it’s because we were raised in a similar fashion or because we have similar personalities. Whatever the combination of reasons, I feel very lucky to have a friend like Natasha, in my inner circle. And Matt too. He is a gem. He and I haven’t had quite the same amount of time together as Natasha and I, but he feels like an old friend too.
And now I have a third Harris to fall in love with-Reagan Elizabeth. Don’t you just love that name?? Reagan was born on April 23rd weighing in at 8 lbs 4 oz. She is healthy and perfect in every way. In addition to the normal “babies first year” sessions, Natasha and Matt added two “grandma sessions” with newborn Reagan as Mother’s Day gifts for each of their mom’s. Lucky me! I get to spend even more time with them!
Stay tuned for lots more photos to come of this darling baby girl that, as far as I can tell, is going to look very much like daddy. These first images are with Matt’s mother, Bev. Bev made all the pillows in the windowsill nook in the nursery so it was special to get photos of her with Reagan there. And, with the assistance of Sally on the hairdryer and Natasha on the styling, we made a great team and kept the sleepy princess comfortable and happy the entire time. Congratulations again Natasha and Matt! She is amazing. I can’t wait for the next session with Grandma Sally, mommy and daddy in a few weeks.
