Little baby ‘B’ and his parents were such pleasure to work with – such proud, first time parents! My sister (who by the way is just starting up her Doula services- I will share info about her as soon as she’s up and rolling for anyone searching for this) are friends with them and had been helping them get ready for the arrival of this baby ‘B’ as well as helped when he came home. What a beautiful connection for new friends!
I love arriving ready for pictures with the baby and the parents have just rolled out of bed – as I ring the bell – first time parents, 2 hours of sleep under their belt (if that) -the love of it all! The coffee maker is cranked up by dad and baby B is having his breakfast upstairs with mom…..the bliss of a newborns first week of life! The roller coaster sleeping habits of babies and parents are fun to hear from client to client! I’ve been there, trust me! The first couple weeks of a baby’s life are magical from a parents standpoint as well as my own and I love capturing those precious moments – even as mom or dad sneak a few long blinks and/or proud parent tears :).
I have to add, never say ‘my baby is THE BEST BABY and sleeps like an angel, following this schedule or that, nothing to worry about’. That is usually the day everything will change and baby will prove parents so incorrect! Turns out baby ‘B’ is a perfect angel, and his parents are head over heels and magically enthralled with this little wonder. Congratulations guys!! I look forward to seeing baby ‘B’ grow up! Enjoy your beautiful portraits!
