I was so excited to go hang out with this sweet family today. Baby “L” was born the day before my own birthday so I was thrilled that his parents were quick to have me over for his newborn session. I loved seeing baby L’s daddy just completely smitten with him. I would have to say that Shane loves babies just as much as I do. We have fought over holding babies at church and we were fighting to hold baby L today! Proud father. Loving mom. Doting sisters. I think little L will grow up filled with all the love he will need from his family and from above!
Newborn sessions are generally best when taken during the first 7 days of life. Why, you may ask? Well, typically, newborns are sleeping all the time, their skin is beautiful and not flaky until about 2 weeks after birth, and they’re just so preciously small! Well, I say typically because it never fails that when I think a baby is going to be zonked out, they end up being wide awake! “L” was not wide awake…but we couldn’t get him to really get to that deep sleep stage where I could maneuver him like I’d like. Oh well. It was still fabulous to hold him and love on him. Yes, I got my baby fix again. 🙂 And, for a bonus, I got to photograph his two adorable sisters. Aren’t they yummy? Just a precious family. Thank you for allowing me into your home for the day! Love you guys!
