At 18 months in the making, this shoot has to be a record for me. Originally scheduled as an engagement shoot, we rescheduled for after the wedding for various reasons. Then I got the fabulous request to postpone it again…for a NEWBORN session! To make things even more special, we held the shoot while two of the grandparents were visiting from Great Britain, and the local grandmother got to be in on the party, too.
Happy BIRTHday, sweet Libby!
A family begins as two…then becomes three…and is now four. With the first baby, it’s not knowing what in the heck you’re doing, worrying over every tremble and regurgitated meal (is it reflux? The flu? There’s just SO. MUCH. SPIT UP!) With the second one, it’s more about “Honey, please don’t step on the baby’s head” as your toddler tears through the room, and you learn to scatter burp cloths around the ENTIRE house from day 1.
I think there’s no greater honor than to be invited back to photograph a family for the second, third or fourth time. This was our third session together and the second newborn shoot, and I can’t wait to continue documenting the growth of these two bundles of sweetness. (Check out the first newborn shoot here.)
Oh, and I have to take a second to brag on this doll’s grandma…she sewed ALL of the linens for the nursery…even the sheets!!! I think I need to hire her for my house!
