Fresh 48 Session at Ocean Springs Hospital in Ocean Springs, Mississippi

This Fresh 48 session was so sweet. Little Evelyn’s grandmother had texted me when they were on the way to Ocean Springs Hospital and was so excited about her arrival. Let me tell you, this little girl is so very loved.

I texted with her mom Lia that morning and made sure that a late morning session would work well for them. When I arrived at the hospital, the room was so quiet and peaceful. Evelyn was sleeping peacefully in her bassinet. Her mom had just taken a quick nap.

I opened the windows to allow lots of natural light to enter in, and Lia and I chatted about how the birth had went, how Evelyn was sleeping, and how wonderful it was to be a mom.

I captured little details of Evelyn in her bassinet before she started stirring and was ready to be closer to mom again. I love to capture how sweet these moments are, because babies grow up so quickly. Every moment is precious.

Anna Cirlot is a candid portrait photographer on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. Her favorite place to do portrait sessions is on Redemption Square Farm, her family owned and operated farm in Gautier, Mississippi. She loves capturing the beauty in life and loves to tell stories through her work. When she isn’t taking photos, she can be found crowded around by goats and chickens in the pasture sipping a fresh brewed cup of coffee watching her children play outdoors.

They came through the door with the car seat in tow. They looked at each other smiling holding their dearest treasure between them. Their newborn son was perfect. His tiny pink fingers wrapped around his soft blanket, and he slept peacefully unaware of everything going on around him. Sleeping like a baby. No, sleeping like an angel was more appropriate. We all joked about how well he was sleeping now knowing that the coming night would be a different story.

How is it that newborns are always so peaceful when you can’t sleep but become the opposite when you can? It’s how cute they are that makes you forgive everything. You want to treasure every single moment, even when they are loud, because you know they will grow. You can’t protect them forever, but you can protect them now. You hold them when a thousand others things need to be done, because you know this is the only thing that should be done. It is worth it. Zero regrets.

Babies are funny, precious little beings. They have a timeline that is all their own, and you just let them run the show for a little while. When you are this cute, you can get away with anything. They do. ;)

I laughed with Amber and Zach. We almost didn’t get their maternity photos done in time. Days later and it would have been too late. We did them, and they were the stuff dreams are made of. Love, joy, and expectation. It made this newborn shoot all the more special.

Baby David couldn’t have been a better model. He slept the entire time! I’m in love with him already. I know you will be too. I blame him completely if you get baby fever. When you do, bring them to me, so I can enjoy them too. :)
