This gorgeous family came in to see me with their brand new baby girl to show off. She was a little older than most newborns I photograph but she did so well throughout her session. My favorite part of newborn sessions with first time parents is talking about their baby. They are literally coming in to see me one week or maybe two or even three weeks into being parents, and they talk as though they're experts. And they really already are!
Every baby is so very different and I feel like there is no advice I can give to new parents, because each baby is so unique. They are the experts on their child. They know the hungry cry. They know she likes to be swaddled with one arm out. They know she prefers her side to her back, etc.
First time parents are so beautiful. They never take their eyes off their baby. They are so careful and just absolutely head over heals in love with this little tiny human they made so beautifully. Babies are such a miracle and to be blessed with one in any way is such a gift.
My best friend just had a baby about a month ago. That feeling never gets old. Watching someone you love become a mother or a father. <3 You see this new light in their eye as they gaze upon their littlest love.
I get to witness this when I photograph these brand new babes. It's such a phenomenal feeling to witness love at it's finest and most beautiful point in life.
