Megan and Mike are dear friends of mine, and I first photographed them when I did their engagement photos and shot their wedding back in 2015. Fast-forward a few years later and they asked me to once again capture a special moment in their lives and take newborn photos of their sweet baby girl, Payton. 

It was such an honour to be among the first of Megan and Mike’s friends to meet baby Payton. At just over a week old, Payton was already showing off her personality, looking up at me with her big baby blue eyes and giving me sweet smiles here and there. 

After capturing some casual snuggles with mom and dad, we moved on to setting up a Harry Potter-themed photo! Megan sourced some awesome props for this part, and dad even whittled a little wand that very morning. I’m always up for making photos unique, and I encourage all my couples to let me know if there’s something specific they’re after. I loved collaborating with mom and dad to get this one just perfect!
