This spoke to me when I saw it on pinterest! How often we forget what matters to our children…It’s not the way we look. It’s not how clean our house is. It’s not how many times we made it to the gym this week.
Children think their moms are amazing! So who cares if your hair isn’t done and you have no makeup on? So you haven’t lost those last 10 lbs of baby weight….your child loves you for you. Never forget that.
Have I told you lately how much I love newborns? I think so in my last post. Thankfully, I had a wonderful family call me up and ask me to do their newborn photos. Even better-they were referred to me from a previous client! Score! This family was so awesome! They were perfect clients-laid back, go with the flow-my type of people! And these two make the cutest babies! Don’t you think?
Big sis could not smell his feet enough! She thought it was so funny!
When I get phone calls or emails from moms-to-be about newborn sessions, the birds are chirping, the sun is shining and my heart is singing! There is something so very special about newborns. Of course, they are sweet, cute, cuddly, tiny. But something inside me just melts each time I get to hold a newborn baby. When the W family first inquired with me about their newborn shoot, my heart was singing! Then she told me that she also wanted homecoming photos and I was over the moon!!! Though it doesn’t work out with every client who inquires with me, I can not tell you how thrilled I was when Mrs. W booked her sessions! Not only did I get to capture these moments, but I got to spend the afternoon with this bundle of awesomeness.
These brothers are proud (even if little sis was over the photos by this point!)
Then there are these quiet moments, when we take a break……
Thank you, W family, for letting me share in two of your family’s most special times.
Remember my friend Stefanie? She finally welcomed baby E to the world. I was so excited to not only hold this little bundle of cuteness but get my camera pointed her way also. She was pretty much awake for most of the time we spent together, but I did capture a few of those sweet sleeping moments.
Remember this from Stefanie’s maternity shoot?
