Meeting a family in their home just days after they’ve brought home their new baby is always such a privilege. Any parent knows what those first few days and weeks are like, especially with a first baby. For each family it’s different, but it’s often a mix of some of the following: scary, exhausting, euphoric, chaos, joy, love (like you’ve never felt before!), triumph, failure, happiness, tears, frustration, confusion, pride…did I say chaos?
Meeting sweet baby Liv and her adoring parents for their in-home lifestyle newborn session, brought me back four years when I took home my first baby. Though Liv’s mom and dad did not look nearly as exhausted as they should have, and the house wasn’t the mess I remember mine being, there were all the signs of joy, happiness, teamwork, and love. It was so fulfilling to be with such a wonderful family at such an incredible time in their lives. And Liv’s fur sister….so in love.
