So one of my goals this year has been to really work on blogging and so far I have not been making much progress on that front… but that is about to change! I decided what better place to dive in than with the newborn session of my baby girl, Nora, who was born March 5, 2016.
I can’t tell you how excited I was to try my hand at photographing my own little girl. I bought all the props thinking I’d have time to get all of them photographed (ha!), and wouldn’t you know, she just wasn’t having it. Any time I tried to get her settled by myself, all she wanted to do was eat. And I tried a lot! Luckily one of my best friends, Norma Fayak, is also a newborn photographer and was willing to help me out with some photo playdates a *few* times. She also took our official photos with the hubby and kiddos which are just beautiful. Anyway, here I am a month later, still going through images and editing whatever pulls at my heartstrings.
It’s hard to believe it has already been a month since she was brought into our lives, yet at the same time it’s hard to remember how it was without her here. She makes our family complete and I am so very grateful to have these photos to look back on. It definitely puts into perspective the importance of what I do, and how lucky I am that my clients put their trust in me to document such a fleeting time.
If you are on the fence about getting professional newborn photos taken, DO IT! You will never regret having these memories to look back on, and your kids will be so thankful when they are grown and find a photo of themselves curled up all tiny in your arms.
Here are some of my favorites that I was able to capture of Nora:
