Sweet Smell of a Precious Little Newborn | Tampa Newborn Photographer

It was a complete honor when this Mom-to-be/Amazing Wedding Photographer asked me to capture their little bundle of joy! 

The fews day prior to their session, mom was not really sure on doing family portraits, and was just a bit nervous; on what to expect overall. If you are a mom yourself, you can totally relate...morning is night and night is morning...it's a never ending schedule of diapers and feedings...{don't worry future moms} it is so worth it and will change your life forever! Upon arriving at her home, it was a relaxing time setting up the mobile photography studio in little S's room. From the moment we placed him on the "cloud blanket" {as many of you have nicknamed it}, he was so peaceful and sleepy.

He was an absolute dream to photograph, with beautiful little smilies and INCREDIBLY long eyelashes. After maybe a bit of peer pressure I convinced mom to jump for a few photographs. He was pretty much done with us taking portraits of him; but we were able to snag a few! When he walks through the doors of kindergarten, you will be so thankful to have these precious memories. {I might need a tissue just thinking about how fast the time goes by!}

Being a newborn photographer is an indescribable job...getting to share the joy and love of a new baby; with families, every week is an amazing feeling.

To little S's mom and dad: cuddle him, love him, spoil him... As a good friend once told me: "the days are long, but the weeks are short...enjoy the moments"

Thank you again for trusting me to capture this special moment.
