Oh...newborns.....I just love every single thing about them - their smell, their tiny fingers and toes, their sweet vulnerability and their absolute perfection. I know some moms claim they love newborns, but don't necessarily want to relive those days again. Not me. I would definitely give up some sleep and time to myself to be able to enjoy those newborn moments again.
A few weeks ago a dear neighbor friend had her first child - a darling baby girl! And, of course, if anyone in my vicinity has a baby, they can be sure I will be at their door, with my camera ready for newborn photos.
I photographed J at one week. She was such a good little girl (although what newborn isn't?). She slept most of the time, only cried a tiny bit and was quickly quieted with a feeding. We had one spit up (caught on camera!) and a couple accidents! But nothing one mom, one dad and one photographer can't handle!
And I do have to say it again, I am SO sorry that I never thought to get newborn photos of my own 3 little girls. Our little ones are only this tiny for such a short time! I know how tired and overwhelmed a new mom is, but if you miss those moments, they will be gone before you know it! I do all shoots on location, so I will travel to your home and work around you and your baby's schedule. No rush, no need to go the trouble of traveling to a studio - just stay home, relax and enjoy the experience!!
Onto the photos! Meet beautiful Miss J!
And with her sweet mom:
Thank you all so much!!!!
