“What kind of newborn session did you want?”
A question usually met with a long silence.
“Ones of the baby?”  A logical answer.
‘Lifestyle’ or ‘Studio’?  It’s a tough choice.  Or at least I think so.  I truly love them both.
Studio is kind of one of those love it or hate it kind of things. You know, with the buckets and blankets.
Not glass bowls, please don’t let anyone convince you that we do that.  Safety is always a priority.
Honestly I don’t think you can truly love it unless you know exactly how much skill and time goes into getting good at it and can tell the good from the bad.

Lifestyle sessions hold their own beauty.
Stepping into your space I get an immediate impression of who you are and the things you love.
Your cat, the one that hates everyone and always hisses, takes a liking to me.  Guess they get an immediate impression of me too.
It’s about the baby, but it’s just as much about what life looks like right now.
Full of awe and wonder.  This time you’ve been waiting months for is finally here.
It’s going to seem a little fuzzy in hind sight, what with the lack of sleep, hormones and transitions.
In just 4 weeks you’ll be remarking how TINY she was!
A year from now your mind is blown that they’ve become a walking talking personality with opinions.
In 5 years you’ll remark how much you’ve aged   😀
So many things will change, yet remain the same.
Enjoy the journey!
