One thing I didn’t expect when I became a newborn photographer is that I would get to re-live my babies newborn moments when I stepped into my clients homes. Those sweet, first days when your heart expands so much. Every glance at your new baby is like a heart explosion of love, protection, fear and pride. The times when you look at your husband over and over again thinking… ‘we did it’. The kind of love that grows for your hubs as he now looks like the father of your child. It’s a magical time. I don’t know exactly what it was about this new, sweet family but they brought me back to those days. They brought home their newborn son and hired me to capture his homecoming.
When I look back at our first year bringing our fist baby home, I remember it being so challenging. I remember trying to do everything just right. I agonized over the choices I had to make, consulted all the women I trust the most in my life and posted countless pleas for help facebook. That year went so fast, just like everyone said it would and now as I walk back into these homes in the first 2 weeks of a newborns life I am constantly in awe of how life changing those moments are. I love every minute of it. They think I’m doing something for them, but they are doing something for me too.
I think what I liked most about this family is that they were honest, authentic & intimate. I’m humbled to be in their space providing them with photographs that they will look at in years to come and hopefully remember the comfort of sitting on the couch loving on their newborn for hours and hours. Those moment, those are golden and so is this little peanut. Welcome to world baby boy. I hope your days here are many and full of love, health & happiness.
