I really do get goosebumps when I arrive in Beacon Hill as a newborn photographer. I love walking those streets. Last week it was early morning when I was arriving for our pictures with this new little guy. The sun was warming my back, and I almost skipped as I came up the hill to their house. Nothing like following my GPS, not quite sure where I’ll park, but excited to start a new journey with an entirely new family.
And when I get to be the newborn photographer for an old friend who’s just had his first baby?
Well that’s when it just couldn’t be more perfect.
But wait, there’s more. Because this boy was just too much. Look at that tummy! Those toes! That soft squishy back!
And I didn’t even explain to you about his amazingly creative mama. She takes beautiful photos of her sweet boy all the time. But she’s never IN the photos. You know the problem? Where you’re not sure your child will even remember you were there for those early days? We decided to remedy that, and took special care to really carefully document mama and her boy. (The hair pulling one cracks me up.)
And then it was time to put on some clothes and maybe have a little snack. Because a little nursing break can sometimes fix everything.
And then a little pat on the back… Aaaaand burp!
p.s. I adored getting to meet you, sweet boy. Hope you love love love your photos!
