The sweetness of a new baby will never grow old on my heart. Never ever. The sounds, smells and tininess of a brand new baby brings back so many feels for me, especially as we inch closer to the one year mark of our son being born. This San Juan Capistrano newborn session with Baby Hannah about opened the floodgates for this tender-hearted mama!
Those first few weeks with a newborn are tough – like, really tough. You are flooded with emotions (and hormones) and would go to great lengths to do anything that your tiny babe needs. But, MAN, sleep deprivation is no joke! Looking back, I wish I would have savored more of the first days with our little man. Because I didn’t, I can’t proceed with gushing about Baby Hannah until all you new or soon-to-be new parents hear my advice:
- Turn off your phone.
- Leave every last dirty dish in the sink.
- Hop in bed and nap with your baby. As much as possible.
You’ll thank me later, I promise.
Now…let’s get to talking more about this new little miss on the block – Baby Hannah.
San Juan Capistrano Newborn Session
When new parents invite me into their home to photograph their baby – I am beyond honored. When these parents happen to be a couple I photographed on their wedding day last year (while I was pregnant with Jones) – I’m downright THRILLED!
It was such a privilege to capture Baby Hannah’s first professional photographs. She was sweet as pie during our session and I am still swooning over that floral print swaddle. I just adore this family so much and I cannot wait to see them grow and thrive together!
