Everyone help me welcome little Julius into the world. He was just nine short days old when he came to visit me in my studio. Mom is an avid animal lover, so we were sure to capture plenty of images of Julius dressed up as all sorts of sleepy animal babies. I truly love how this session turned out. What an adorable little man this is. My favorite image has to be of him with his eyes wide open, arm extended in the air as if saying, “hello!”. Newborn photography really is my absolute favorite to capture.
Moments Captured To Remember Forever
Take consideration for a moment, time’s relentless march. Today, your little one is a tiny, teetering, toddler- dependent on you for entirely everything (all you parents out there know I mean EVERYTHING when I say everything!). Tomorrow, they will be sending off their applications to various universities. And you know, however painful it is, they will soon ship off to their new homes, following the path of those application letters. You stop for a moment, with an almost whiplash force, and wonder to yourself, “where in the world has the time gone?” At one point in your life, time almost stood still. But the older, wiser you now knows the truth. Time truly does stop for no one.
You walk to your hallway, where those old baby photos are still proudly on display and just stand still for a moment. You can still feel the warmth of their little bodies, cuddled up close to yours. You can still smell that all-too-familiar “new-baby” smell. Most of all, you remember the overflowing love and adoration you were filled with the moment you laid eyes on your little miracle for the first time. And for a moment once again, time stands still.
It is for this reason that I love capturing newborns. Providing these time-machine-images for moms and dads to look back on and remember is nothing short of an incredible honor. Above all else, please remember, family is truly at the center of our heart and society. No matter how your family is comprised, celebrate it, treasure it and respect it. Hold on to that love.
