It has been a long while since I had a newborn in the studio!
I have actually turned them down many times the last few years. This beautiful family was given the perfect gift though, a gift card for portraits! They chose newborn portraits! I did have one rule though, the diaper stays on the whole time. haha
Meet little Clarke…he is so sweet! He loves the touch of his mommy and the warmth of his daddy. He loves his hands free and his toes spread wide!
He is such a sweet addition to this family. But as we all learn with newborns, lack of sleep is in the cards. As I was getting the last shot of Clarke with the hat and blue wrap, I looked over and his tired mama was sound asleep in the most uncomfortable looking position on the couch. It was so great to see her get a much needed nap in. As much as we sit and stare at these sweet angels and it’s easily said that all they do is eat, sleep and go potty…it just isn’t true. It’s a BIG job that is so rewarding but so exhausting.
I tell everyone to try and enjoy every minute, even in exhaustion because it goes by so fast. One day they won’t remember that he was this tiny. Suddenly…one day they are a senior in high school and you are asking yourself, where did the time go?
I’m so thankful that the priceless gift of a gift card for family portraits was given to this family. The gift that truly keeps on giving. This new family of three now has professional portraits to look back on and remember these days.
Comment with the age of your “baby” or “babies”…can you believe they were once this tiny??
