“I may be small, but I matter. Teach me. Love me. Believe in me. Because with your guidance, when I’m all grown up, I’m going to be someone amazing.” Sarah Wheeler
Always a favorite session for us is a past bride that has a little baby and entrusts us with their newborn photos. It seems to be a good match, we have spent many hours together on your wedding day – have a bond of sorts – it seems natural for us to photograph the next incredible milestone in a couple’s lives together. Having a baby.
This new mother is so beautiful. I love how organic and natural this baby session was. Baby and mom (and the puppies too!).
I know new mothers are so busy when they have a new baby – whether it is your first time or your 3rd – it is a beautifully hectic time for a mom and her baby. Finding time for a newborn session doesn’t always seem possible. But as a mom of an 8 and 10 year old, these photos are a must. I look back at my fresh little baby photos and I can’t believe that my girls were ever this tiny.
Yes, I love photos at all stages, 3 months, 6 months, sitting and crawling. But there is nothing quite as sweet as those first two weeks when your little baby can barely open their eyes, is still kind of scrunchy and brand new. How can you ever really remember this without looking at photos? And the bond captured between mom and her new baby, priceless.
As I mentioned a few lines ago, this is truly an honor to document this exciting time in a family’s life.
