Doing these in-home newborn sessions are growing on me. At first I was hesitant when I started. Newborns and by default newborn sessions are more unpredictable and fragile than weddings, so photographing them in their freshest moments can be a little intimidating. I’m learning to take each expression, each cry, poopy diaper and unplanned spit up as opportunity to find beauty, because even a baby’s quivering lip and hunger-filled cry is something to remember and revel in. As the small and intricate details of this little person fill up my memory card, I am also looking at these new parents and their love with abandon for this bone of their bone and flesh of their flesh. Their lives have been flipped upside down by this tiny soul. Tim, TiLissa, thank you for letting me spend this lovely Friday evening with your sweet little girl. Lydia, you are loved very much.
