Alma and Joe are very special to me.  We first got to know them when we photographed their wedding, and they were so fun and easy to work with.  We immediately hit it off, had tons of fun, and made some awesome photos together.  So when they told me they were pregnant, I was thrilled for them!  We had so much fun doing their maternity session!  They’re WONDERFUL people–sweet, caring, loving, patient–and they both work with children in their jobs.  Their baby boy, Joe Vona IV, was only a few days old when we did this newborn session, and these two were already pros at being parents.  Joe is an amazing husband, helping with the baby as much as possible since Alma had a Cesarean section birth and is recovering.  They are completely in love with their baby boy, and I know their lives are going to be full of joy.

Thank you, Alma and Joe, for inviting me into your home and trusting me to capture these precious memories!

Alma and Joe bought their first home, where they brought Joey when they left the hospital. I think it’s important to show where you live with your newborn so no matter where you move, you have memories of where you brought him home.

Joe’s mom wanted photos of Joey wearing the family christening outfit. Joe’s father wore it, Joe wore it, and now Joe IV wears it for his christening!
