My good friend, Shelley had her baby and we did his newborn session this past week! Collin was such a good baby… he hardly fussed at all. Babies grow so fast, he will already be changing and older when they get their final prints from this session! That is why I love to do the newborn session when they are so little!
Shelley has already seen her slide show from the session, and she loved it! She said it made her and her husband cry! That is why I love this job… I love to give people a cherished gift, a memory of this time in their life. Images are so powerful! Here are a couple of my favorite…
Congratulations Shelley! Thanks for trusting this special time to me!
Lauren is a very special little girl! She is one month old, but she only weighs a little over three and a half pounds. You see, Lauren was born at 29 weeks. So, Her mom and Dad asked if I could come to the hospital to do newborn pictures of her. She is such a beautiful little baby! We were a little crowded in the corner of the neonatal room, with one chair and a black backdrop. We couldn’t take her blanket off too long, because her body temperature would drop. So, we kept her bundled most of the time, and got some beautiful images of this little bundle of joy. I think good things come in small packages! She didn’t fuss at all!
Lauren and her parents came in for a children’s and family session. Lauren doesn’t really like to get her picture taken… she didn’t like it with Santa or the Easter Bunny. So, it was my mission to see if she would like me enough to get her picture take with me! We started out with some family pictures, and that seemed to go well. She even gave me a high five! (After a lot of coaxing, and quite a few tries!) Then we did her individual portraits… well after a short time Lauren decided that she really didn’t want to do this any more… and who can argue with a one and a half year old? Luckily, we did get a few before she decided to quit!
