It is funny because there are times in the year when I get to shoot all kinds of sessions. Newborn sessions are always a lot of fun because mom and dad are usually a little nervous about what they are supposed to do and whether or not their baby is going to do the right things as well.
The funny part to me is always watching them. You can always tell whether this is their first baby or not. If it is their first child they have this look as if they are holding a nuclear bomb. Then if it is their second child they have found out that their little one is a lot tougher than you would ever imagine and will not detonate upon the slightest touch.
I also enjoy watching mom and dad “love” on their babies. It is almost as if putting the camera in front of them gives them an awesome excuse to kiss them, hold them, or just to stop for a second and just look at them.
Welcome Riley! Can’t wait to shoot your next session at six months! I am sure I will be blown away with how much you have changed. It is always amazing to see the differences in such a short time. See you soon! *baby high five* 🙂
