Sweet Etta Gene. 6 days old. This was actually suppose to be a maternity shoot. Jill went into labor early and the day after Etta was born, Jill texted to say she would still like to keep the photoshoot and just make it a newborn session!  I was blown away! I remember not even wanting to leave my house for weeks, let alone ready for a photo shoot when Jack was born! And they were totally on board for a sunrise session. "We'll probably be up anyways!", Jill said. It is so rare for most of us to be up early enough AND get to the lake to see the sun rise over Lake Michigan. They arrived as the sun broke and as they walked on the beach toward me, holding this little wrapped bundle,this beautiful orange pink glow washed over them. And then I saw Etta's sweet face. I will never forget that moment or this magical morning...

Sweet, right?

If you would like a photo shoot with your loved ones at sunrise, I'm your girl.
