Oh how lovely a new baby is. My son is 3.5 years old now and it’s quite true that you just forget that new-ness; the little fingers, the fuzzy shoulders, that newborn cry (which to anyone else but the parents is just beautiful). Watching Chris and Shelley navigate parenthood reminded me of the times with my son. I loved how his head fit right under my chin, I loved seeing him grow and wondering who he would be, how he would be…. Every parent will (eventually) agree that the newborn stage passes so quickly and I think that’s why I love these newborn lifestyle sessions. It’s a moment in time that will never be again. He’ll never be that small, that cuddly ever again. He won’t fit on your lap, the fuzzy shoulders will be no more. And when the fog lifts and you have a 3.5 year old (whom you still adore! I promise!), these pictures will remind you just how incredible it was. Thanks for letting me into your journey and allowing me the honor of capturing such beautiful moments. Love to you both.
