Capturing the sweetness of my babies in sleepy newborn photos is something I regret, not doing. We had a hospital photographer take an image of my girl on day 2 in her ubiquitous pink and blue flannel swaddle blanket. She had a big bump on her head, from her lengthy back labor entrance into this world. The photographer caught a priceless cranky face… which I treasure! I don’t blame my girl one bit for being unhappy… it wasn’t easy getting here.
Honestly, I don’t remember her newborn face, as vividly as I remember the image.
I wish I did!
But at each passing stage the older version of my kids faces replaced the image of the younger babes. Thats why I’m so thankful for all the pictures I captured as the family photographer.
They remind me….. They bring back moments I want to retain!
That sweet mom, is why I love creating images of your babies!
I hope you will see the womblike chub, or lack of it! That you will remember they peeled… when you see the flaky wrists and ankles in your babies images.
That they had glorious hair or not, lol! How tiny they were, cuddled in your arms.
How overwhelming raw the feeling of love was for your babe, just by the look on your face as you snuggled her.
That is the meaning of priceless….
Welcome with me, another angel who visited my studio for sleepy newborn photos!
Keeping her was a thought! So was smooching her, lol!
Your baby is priceless and thank you for the honor of selecting me to capture her first professional images. She might have a career of posing ahead of her, wink!
If you are expecting, I invite you to schedule a studio visit. I’d love to know the type of art you hope to have after your babies session.
Please leave me your due date and any question you might have about a sleepy newborn photo session with me.
Blessings on the little life you will soon hold.
