It’s a pretty special thing to walk alongside your clients through so many milestones. You can say that it’s a perk of my profession — and one that I don’t take lightly. This family is so dear to me. I have been privy to so many of their big events – including their engagement, wedding day, the birth of their first baby, and now a new little one’s newborn session.
When you work with a couple and family for so long – things feel pretty easy and comfortable. However, there is a sense of added pressure, too. Maybe it’s just me and the pressure I put on myself to continuing growing and learning – but to be honest – I only put that type of pressure on myself because I want to deliver the best of the best for my people. Besides, all of this pales in comparison to the pressure that comes with our most unpredictable subjects — toddlers!
Culver City In-Home Newborn Session
You guys, big brother wanted absolutely nothing to do with me from the moment I walked into his home! I was met with tears when I even glanced in his general direction. But that’s ok — I get it. Change is hard and adding a little sister to the mix is a huge change! Fortunately, we were able to snap a couple of super cute shots of this new family of four. I’m always up for the challenge of making kids smile and smiles he was after I let him pretend to squirt me with water! Hey, whatever it takes, right? The only one who thought I was completely insane might have been the dog!
The new (again) parents were so patient and baby girl slept the entire time which made for an easy session. Oh, I love (and kind of miss) those sweet sleepy newborn days!
