During my newborn sessions it’s not uncommon for my clients to make some remark as to not realizing how much work newborn sessions are. My sessions are typically 2-3 hours depending on the baby, and by the end I’m definitely exhausted. But the best thing ever is the pay off!!
The session often seems like one big blur for me and sometimes in my head I’m thinking, “I hope I got some good shots.” When I load and start editing them is when I realize I LOVE newborn sessions more than anything!! All that hard work paid off to get these beautiful images, and I get so giddy to share them with my clients!!
I know I probably sound crazy for saying this but it is a rush for me. A rush of pure joy and happiness for what I do. A rush of love for these little people who I JUST met as I admire their perfect newness and how remarkable life is. Not having kids yet of my own I can’t even imagine how these families feel. As a newborn photographer though, I can tell you that I am very passionate about what I do. I love so dearly every opportunity I have to hold your precious treasures for a couple of hours. Thank you so much to every single one of my newborn clients who have given me the blessing of having a small slice of this joy!
Oh sweet Marilyn. She made me work hard for these images, but it was so worth it. She is perfection!!
