The first child. There is just nothing like it. Everything is a new and exciting experience. Last month I spent my morning with this sweet family as they adjusted to a family of three, and it is always such an honor to be invited in to document these moments. Austin was almost four weeks old at the time of his session, and I secretly love that. There is such pressure in the newborn photography world to get these sessions in while the baby is under two weeks old, and I find myself loving the sessions with older babies. Moms have had more time to heal, everyone (baby included!) has had time to adjust to feeding, sleepless nights, etc. and it feels more relaxed. This session was no exception! Austin was a little fussy when we first started, but we rolled with it and he quickly fell asleep after some sweet snuggles from his Mama and the rest of the session was a breeze! Heather mentioned in her questionnaire she wanted these pictures to be a “happy celebration of Austin being born”. I think we accomplished that! I love all the sweet snuggles in this session.
