Adorable baby Liam was just ten days old when I went to visit him. It’s always a treat when I’m invited to a clients home for a new arrival photo session. From the moment I stepped inside, I could see and feel the love and joy Liam has brought to his family.
A Little Background on the Family.
Our photo shoot consisted of Mommy, Daddy, both sets of grandparents, and their furry child, Hercules. Every member of the family couldn’t get enough of the fresh bundle of joy. Apparently Liam’s grandparents flew hundreds of miles just to snuggle him and love on his sweetness. Based on the pictures from the new arrival photo session, we can all see why.
Managing a New Arival Photo Session.
Over the years, I’ve learned that it’s nearly impossible to estimate the length of a newborn photography session. There are all kinds of variables. As a mother of 6 now, I get it. When babies are hungry, you better feed them. If they don’t want to fall asleep or keep filling their diaper, you’ve got to handle business!
Throw in some siblings and any new arrival photo session can get a little hairy. Luckily for me, Liam was in no hurry! Since multiple people were involved (and very hands on), I didn’t want to rush the process or overstep any boundaries.
In turn, we were able to work at a comfortable pace and capture all of the pictures his parents wanted. Newborn photography has a tendency to be bit boring. But I think everyone enjoyed the time we spent together.
Patience, Understanding Helps With Babies.
The demand of new child can be overwhelming – especially when it’s your first! Liam was no exception. However, I was very impressed with his ability to hold his head up like a champ. He was probably the strongest ten-day-old I’ve ever met! It’s amazing how fast babies grow once they’re discharged from the hospital!
After 30 minutes or so, Liam finally decided to show me his photogenic side. The comfort of the room allowed me to capture some seriously sweet pictures. When it was all said and done, I had such a great time getting to know this bunch! With love and patience, anything is possible. My prayer is that God blesses this new family!
I Love Working as a baby Photographer.
I’m so grateful for every new arrival photo session I get to be a part of. Believe it or not, each family blesses me. Welcoming children into the world is a short-lived season for every parent – but it’s always such a special one. Birth has a unique way of teaching us things about ourselves and each other.
