Yall! Could this job get any better? Looking through the newborn images from this past year it feels like “no way!”. I LOVE working with newborns and I especially LOVE the newborn sessions from 2018! I can’t even believe there was a time when I was turning down newborn enquiries. Yeah, I was! I was SO intimidated by these tiny humans! Plus I didn’t think I’d be any good when I couldn’t run around with them, couldn’t make up games and silly phrases to get the smiles and instead had to be careful and quiet. Quiet isn’t normally in my nature…. but once I took on my first newborn session it was love!
The slower pace, the warm and cozy atmosphere, the softness of a newborn session can be such a contrast to my normal family sessions but it adds such a nice balance. I look forward to the tiny fingers and toes, the little eyelashes, the quiet womb sounds from my app in the background and the gentleness of every movement. These sessions are special. Swoon worthy, lovely.
This year I had six newborn sessions, one with family, two with old friends, two with families who I took their first child’s newborn images and one that felt like working with a friend I’ve known forever. Each were beautiful and I cherish these images so much. Take a look at my favorite newborn images from 2018. 🙂
