I just love newborns, a lot of time when I say this people look at me like I am crazy, don’t get me wrong, it is tiring, you are just recovering from childbirth, you are exhausted from the lack of sleep and comfort in the third trimester, then the actual birth, not to even mention that hospital stay, where you are supposed to “sleep”, but there is something about it that is also so peaceful. If there was a job of just snuggling newborns all day, sign me up, I am on it!
There’s something about the silence of the night, and holding your brand new baby, breathing in their scent that is just so calming. I wouldn’t trade it for anything! Their little newborn eating sounds is music to my ears. While everyone in the world is asleep, this little baby is yours and only yours, you don’t have to pass her to an excited grandparent, you can just hold her and revel in the new little life. When she opens her eyes and just looks at you with that newborn pure love, there is nothing like it. They don’t care that you probably haven’t showered in days, you’re hair is a mess, you have bags under your eyes from lack of sleep, all they see is their parent, their world.
At newborn photography sessions, I just adore watching how new baby’s look at their mom and dad, you can see the love in their eyes, you are their world. It’s a great feeling. I would have so many more babies, I love them so much! It always makes me happy when doing the parent photos if the baby’s open their eyes and I can capture those looks, those looks of pure love, because that’s what it’s all about 🙂
