This last month, leading up to the last days of my own pregnancy, I was blessed with the opportunity to photograph a few more gorgeous newborns. And my heart melted with each and every one - as I imagined them as my own little newborn. It really is a blessing to be able to photograph these incredible moments, the overwhelming love of the parents, and the perfect features that only newborns can have - like teeny finger nails, long eye lashes, and plump lips. The things that you never, ever want to forget because they will grow up so fast.
That may be what amazes me most about newborns - how short of time they actually are newborn. What would you say it is? One month? Two weeks? And then BAM - they aren't newborn anymore!
During the session with Zoey and her awesome parents, we were able to experiment with her dad's collection of guitars and the cutest accessories in the world. Once asleep, I was able to pose her in baskets, blankets, and gently on the guitar. Which turned out to be an awesome shot!
Now she will be able to see that guitar and how small she was compared to it. That will be something special to her and her parents always :)
Let me know what shot is your favorite! I am dying to hear.
