Fresh Baby at Legacy Good Sam: Portland OR Newborn Photographer

 Fresh Baby newborn session with a baby girl named Belle at Legacy Good Samaritan located in Portland Oregon.

B E L L E is: Fair. Lovely one. Sometimes used as an independent name associated with the French word belle, meaning beautiful.⁠
On July 23 the world welcomed the newest beautiful Belle, and I visited her family to document their Fresh Baby at Legacy Good Sam in Portland, Oregon.

The birth community here is so tight knit and strong, we all love getting the chance to support each other’s families. Belle’s mom and dad used local #youdoyoudoula, Doula Olivia. I couldn’t help but smile with pride hearing this first time family’s experience with labor support and to hear them speak so highly of a “coworker” of mine.

Gah, this baby has the kindest eyes. I can’t help but think this isn’t her first round, what an old soul.

I could (and will, this whole week) go on and on about this little babe…and her latch. I visited this family a few weeks post-birth and as I walked up the driveway I could see through the window that mom was casually standing, looking out the window, and nursing like a pro. She could do a 🎤 drop with both hands holding up the nursing pillow and the babe 🖤⁠

I tell the #firsttimedad at our prenatal meeting that he is about to be knocked off his feet by the sheer magnitude of love he feels for his baby. It’s one of the sweetest things for me to witness – the goofy smile, how they hover so closely with a protective aura yet are the softest ball of mush.⁠

This is a #csection mom. Birthing plans and the unaffected turns they can take do NOT define who we are a mother. The way we raise our children and love are the very definition of our motherhood.⁠

Do you live in Oregon and would like to explore the opportunity of having your Fresh 48 or Fresh Baby at Legacy Good Sam
documented by Meg Ross Photography, a Portland Birth and Family Photographer?
I am happy to visit all hospitals, birth centers, and family homes immediately and up to 48 hours post-birth.
Reach out today and literally freeze this moment in time before it fades away.
As a fellow parent I understand how fleeting each milestone and memory can be, especially so fresh post-birth.
