I took advantage of this sweet newborn session to traipse around the Windy City on a beautiful early Fall day back in early September. This new mama is such a natural and her sweet boy … a total doll. He was the perfect newborn – just like all the other newborns I shoot. They are all just so perfect. It’s such a privilege to capture these early fleeting days when they are a still a little skinny, wrinkly, peely, and curled up.
I just love this. Newborns take so much more time and require so much more patience, but it is so worth it. New mamas and new babies … these are two very precious things in life. I didn’t feel that way when I was a new mom, but with a little hindsight and time … I can see how precious those early days really were. I sure wish I had pictures like this with my babies! Sheesh, I’m sounding like a little old lady! I’m not even forty and I’m already living with a little hindsight and life experience. How sobering! Oh well, I’m glad to have the perspective. Carolyn … baby Cole is just perfect. I bet he’s changed in the last month!!
