We had the privilege of photographing another gorgeous new baby girl over the weekend. Her ivory skin is so smooth and beautiful, and her eyelashes…..to die for. Not to mention the luscious full head of dark hair. I still have such a passion for photographing newborns, and giving families tangible memories of their babies so new in the first days of their life. It’s just so important to have high quality, detailed portraits of all of those tiny details of your newborn that you want so much to rememeber in full intensity, but know will fade in clarity from your memory as the years go by. This is the one thing you can do to keep the memories sharp. And at the end of our lives, memories are really the only thing we really have. The money, the cars, houses, assets….mean nothing. Photos capturing the memories, mean everything and last forever. Through generations to come, family fireplace sittings and photo album viewings. Maybe one day, her own daughter will look at these newborn photos and compare them to the photos of her newborn child. It’s just irreplacable, and there is nothing of greater value than a captured memory, in my opinion. So, I take this seriously….and deal with every new baby like it is my own. When they are fussy, I stay patient. I use those times as good excuses to get my newborn cuddles in. I do my job and walk away knowing I’ve given the family something they will cherish forever. THAT is why I do this. And why I LOVE it.
Without further ado, here is sweet baby Jocelyn. Her Mom was just as gorgeous in her maternity session, so of course it is of little surprise that J would take after her Momma and shine in front of the camera 🙂 Enjoy your preview guys!
