So glad to be back in the saddle having a session with a beautiful newborn baby boy. One of my closest friends gifted a friend of hers a session with me at her baby shower. How awesome is that. Wouldn’t you love for someone to do the same for you? I was thinking about it and I thought that it is a sure way to give the most memorable gift! There is no way a cute outfit, a stylish baby bag or even a home sewn quilt can compete with portraits of your precious newborn! I am sure that my friend has earned herself a permanent place of honor in this new mother’s heart for giving such a thoughtful and wonderful gift.
Ty is Barbara’s first child. I love getting to photograph brand new parents whether they just had their 1st or 7th child. But there is definitely something extra special when a couple comes in with their first baby. They have just worked together to create for the very first time a living breathing little person. And it is new to them and you can see that wonder in their eyes! Is there any success greater in life than creating a family? I don’t think so. I love to be part of this experience. It is like a drug that you just can’t get enough of. I love being in the presence of brand new parents, in awe with their new little creation…the room is filled such positive energy.
Being a part of these special moments often makes me considering having another child. My youngest is 3 now. I miss having a baby in my home. There is something extraordinary about the atmosphere a newborn brings to a home. It is like everyone always wanting kittens and puppies. Selfishly I want all the wonderful perks of having a child in their infancy. That sweet skin, watching them learn how to use their fingers and waiting for them to smile for the first time. I would love to have another baby, but I don’t want to have a larger family really. So being a newborn photographer is such a wonderful blessing!!!
Enjoy this little sneak peep of handsome little Ty!
