Being a newborn photographer in the metro Detroit area means that I get to visit all different types of families with many viewpoints and ways of approaching parenthood. One thing that is always common though is the love and pride that parents have for their newborn baby. I love capturing young families having their first baby because the excitement is intoxicating. That newness, that love and pride and fear and admiration is so thick that I can usually feel it the minute I look at them. Like this family, don’t you just want to clap, high five and hug them all at the same time? If this isn’t new baby pride I don’t know what is.
I got to spend a a little time with this crew last week in their home and it filled my heart with all sorts of happy. That kind of excitement sticks to my bones and keeps me happy for days following their photo shoots.
Ladies & gentlemen, this is Liv as in ‘Live and let live’. With a name like that she is surely destined for a a graceful life. Isn’t she cute!
She’s sweet and soft and likes to put her hands straight up, like this:
I know this lovely couple but I swear that it has nothing to do with what I’m about to say…. She won the parent lottery. They are already doing all the right things. Holding her and loving on her like the sweet, innocent force she is. Giving her a life, home and protection that only they could. The way they look at her….. they can’t even pretend to stay cool about it.
New & growing families are the best because it reminds me of what is really important. The world and all it’s problems stop when a newborn is around, like a breath of fresh air. Welcome to the world Liv, it’s a wild one but you have the right people to guide you through. Oh and take your time growing up, it’s actually a trap.
