Being a mom I have A LOT of pictures of my kids. I’m sure many of you can relate. However, what I do not have is a lot of photos of me with my kids. I hear this common theme with many moms who come to me for family photography sessions. When my oldest was born, I hired a newborn photographer to photograph my newborn and our family and I can’t tell you how often I look back at those pictures. It brings back so many good feelings. I look at those pictures and remember what it was like to hold our baby for the first time and it transports me to a time of those very first moments of parenthood. THIS is why pictures are so important with you in them! It is a way to document and a way preserve so we can look back on and remember. Babies don’t stay little long but pictures help us hold onto those memories.
How gorgeous is this mama? This is her third baby and I am so happy she now has these portraits to forever look back on and remember the time that her baby fit in her arms so snuggly and perfectly. A time we all want to remember and transport back to even if for a second! This part of the newborn session is always one of my favorites for these exact reasons. xo
