“No matter how long we live, no matter what all we do, the only thing that matters now, is holding little you.”
From the one of a kind stories, to the one of a kind babies, it’s a dream job situation.
A few Sundays ago, here at my Newborn studio work space in Puyallup, WA., the most handsome little guy was placed in my arms.
And from the moment I looked down at him, I could see he had his taken right after his Dad with his looks. But his dimples? Those were definitely his Mama’s. 100%.
After some much needed coffee, these proud Parent’s were gushing all over this little guy as I settled in to start working with him. Just feet from where I was working, Baby was still very aware that his Mama and Daddy were nearby. I love listening to new parent’s talk to their baby. There is something so undeniably sweet about the things they are saying. Things you imagine they’ve probably wanted to say, and dreamed of saying for many long months as they waited for baby’s arrival.
Soon, it was quiet and I looked up to find an even sweeter picture to my right. Mom had curled up on the couch and was lightly napping, her head propped on her husbands shoulder. They really were the perfect little family of three. It’s moments like those, that I feel like I’m looking in the window of life with a brand new baby all over again. The emotions are real, you guys! It truly is such an honor to get to work with such wonderful families over and over again at such a precious and fragile stage in life.
Baby was very patient with me, and I would catch Dad smiling at his new son, as he watched the little fuzzy bear hats being put on him for certain pictures, or a cute little pair of pants here or there. I love when I see parents smile like that. Its the ‘I’m going to be saving these pictures forever, and show the kids one day when they are grown’ kind of smile. These parents truly could not have loved that baby an ounce more. He is one lucky little guy. The love that they had for each other was truly palpable. And I know I was the lucky one that day, to get to record it.
