I am finally finding some time to post this in home newborn session. It has been on my to do list for literally a year! I am not even joking. I sometimes have sessions I can not wait to share but my to do list is just too jam packed to find the time. But finally, I have this one live!
I worked with this family last year in their home about 2 weeks after birth. I love to come at the two week mark simply because I want to capture the babies personalities. To this day, I can’t understand what makes a newborn so amusing. I can just sit and watch them make the funniest faces and be in complete awe. They are just so innocent and pure. As hard as it is to be a parent to a new baby, it is also such a beautiful time in one’s family.
The thing I love the most about newborn photos is that they represent the start of something new. I hear a lot of excuses why many parents chose to skip this session; things like “well the baby will be much cuter in a few months” or “I don’t want photos of myself right after I gave birth”. When I had my newborn photos taken, I was still huge. I actually still looked pregnant. I also look at them and remember how hard that time was in my life. I felt very disconnected, exhausted, and unsure.
It has been 18 months since I had a newborn. When I look at my newborn photos now, I think “wow, I had no idea how much I was going to love this little person”. I didn’t realize this was the beginning of something so incredibly special. Even though I looked fat and I was an emotional wreck, I am so happy I have photos of the beginning of my relationship with my son. And I am so happy my son will have these images as well.
