You never know how a newborn session is going to go. Sometimes baby is sensitive to touch, or going through a growth spurt and wants to eat the whole time. Sometimes you change the backdrop four times because baby’s digestive system is working on over drive. 😉 And sometimes, you hit newborn baby gold. A rare myth in the newborn photographer world!
Meet little miss Olivia Jean; six pounds four and a half ounces and nineteen inches of pure perfection! She arrived in this world a little early and was 14 days old at her photo debut. I have a special place in my heart for preemies being that I have two of my own! I have never had a newborn session go as quickly as hers did. This tiny little rock star showed up sleeping, snoozed peacefully during parent shots, and kept right on sleeping until we had gotten every shot we were hoping for and then some. Only then did she ask for a bottle. Let me tell you, she was so peaceful while she was sleeping, but when she decides it’s time to eat, you’ll know!
Her parents were gems as well. Amber was calm and collected, which is a big reason why her little lady was as well. Being a nurse, she never even batted an eye at bodily fluids that made their way where they usually shouldn’t. That’s a big deal for first time moms! Usually, it’s a cause for embarrassment, but really, I take their diapers off…I have it coming! Andrew was there to do all the things new dads are supposed to do…dote on Mom and baby! It was such fun to capture the love within this new family of three, and preserve the first memories of their baby girl. Really folks, I’m living the dream!
