There's just nothing sweeter than a newborn baby... all that squishy-ness, the newness and hope you see in their faces. I absolutely love getting the opportunity to do a newborn session and see the excitement (although often quite a bit of tiredness as well) in the new mommies.
Here's a peek at Baby T. He was such a little sleepy guy - and I could have taken pictures of him all day long! His Mom was kind enough to bring him to a newborn workshop I was doing with Laura Brett Photography (look her up if you don't know who she is - she's awesome at what she does, but also a wonderful mentor and a super sweet lady) so I didn't get to scoop him up and keep him to myself that day. BUT I can share this picture with YOU!
Wednesday was one of those days that I had my time all planned out. I had a list of all that I needed to accomplish, and was working my way down that list... and then the phone rang. It was a call to do a session for Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep... and it was not close by. It would be a good hour and a half drive to get there. I have noticed a trend that these calls seem to happen on the days when my equipment is not neatly packed in my bags - ready to head out the door; when I have been a bit lazier about getting dressed up (you know, even drying my hair rather than letting it air dry and pulling it into a ponytail!)... and this day was no different. My hair was a bit crazy and no makeup had touched my face. Fortunately, it wasn't one of those days where I waited until the end of the afternoon to hit the shower. For that I was thankful! Funny thing is that when these calls some in, somehow what my hair or makeup look like just doesn't seem too important anymore - and this time was no different. I quickly gathered all the equipment, hats, blankies, release forms, etc., that I would need to take with me... threw on some blue jeans and a shirt, slipped on a pair of boots and headed out the door. Oh... I did grab a Nutri-grain bar and a Diet Dr. Pepper, since I hadn't had anything to eat yet for the day! A friend was planning on coming over for a few hours in the afternoon, so I had to call her when I was in my car and on my way. As usual, my drive there consisted of many thoughts and prayers, going over my mental lists to make sure I had everything in order... and I was blessed to have a friend to talk with on the phone for much of the drive. ......to finish this blog, please click to go to the NEW blogpage on my website!
