Shelby – Roseville newborn photographer

Get some tissues ready.

This is Shelby. Her daddy passed away before she was born. We did our best to honor his memory at her session and I think the images came out beautiful.

A little story. When Shelby and her mama (Jessa) and brothers arrived at my studio, mama was so overwhelmed. I found out later in the day it was because as she walked up to my home and saw a dragonfly stepping stone, and then saw my dragonfly tattoos…

Ever since her husband passed away, she has been seeing dragonflies everywhere. At her kids soccer game, there was a dragonfly pacing the field back and forth, just like her husband would do at the games. Another one appeared when she was stopped in the car. A neighbor came over to meet the baby and was wearing a shirt with dragonflies. A nurse at the hospital for a recent appointment had dragonfly earrings on. This newborn photosession was gifted to Jessa by a good friend and she had not had a chance to check out my website or my work. She had no idea that when she arrived she would see dragonflies, yet again. I think Ryan is looking over his family and sending comfort.

I’m so happy to have met you Jessa. I will continue to keep you and your family in my thoughts. You are an amazing woman, and I admire your strength.
