Hazel was such a sweet girl! She was super chubby which is just about the cutest thing you can be when you are only a few days old. Also, I love catching some open eyed images juuuuuust about as much as I love getting big smiles
I love so much when I find dads helping follow the directions I send before a newborn session. I found this dad walking baby up and down the front walk when I pulled up to the house and just knew this would be a great session, and it was! A lot of my clients lately have been taking their babies outside for some fresh air right before I arrive to keep them calm and happy before our session and it really helps. I know my oldest always loved being outside too, I think this is another one of the suggestions that will find a permanent spot in my prep guide!
This guy is 5! I cannot even believe it, these sessions make me realize just how long I have been doing this amazing job. It seems so cliche to say at this point, but I do have one of the most amazing jobs in the world. I get to meet your baby, often before many family members and then I see them usually multiple times in the first year and then every year after that and I get to be the one to freeze those few precious moments each time that moms and dads and then someday grandkids will look back on for the rest of their lives. Seriously, amazing. These are the clients that feel like friends and every time I hear from them I get so excited because it is just like seeing an old friend. I may be crazy, but I miss you guys between sessions!
This guy was the sweetest ever! He peeped at me maybe once our entire time together and gave the cutest smiles. I adore catching smiles and try so hard to get at least one in every session, I am on a roll lately
