There are babies galore in my world right now, and I’m loving each and every minute of it. Each new baby offers a chance to try something new, to find a way to truly connect with the family. In a moment of downtime at Patrick’s newborn session I glanced out the window to the horses grazing in their paddock and said “Wouldn’t it be great to a shot of him asleep in the saddle?” not really sure we could do even do it, or if his mom would be interested. Eyes lit up, and we excitedly figured out a way to make it work. It’s exactly as I had hoped.
Oh, and from now on I think it may be a newborn session requirement for new moms to take pictures with their babies. As I said to Patrick’s mom – You may be self critical (aren’t we all?!?) and not love it tomorrow, but I promise you that in twenty years it will be priceless. This day, this time when they’re so small, you can never get it back. PS- in this case, it doesn’t matter because she’s stunning.
