Those last few images with Mum? That's why these sessions are precious. The best thought with regards to newborn photography is that these tiny, fleeting moments have been preserved. Natalia and her Mum will have these for many years to come. I think that today, thanks to advances in technology and this new "digital age," we are forgetting how to properly preserve our memories. And perhaps more importantly, we are in far less of the photographs ourselves. I'm sure most of us can scroll our camera roll and be presented with hundreds of photos of our nearest and dearest but so little of us 'together.'
That's why I always gently encourage new parents to be in the photographs. Sure, most of us don't like being in front of the camera but i promise you, it will be so worth it. Maybe not today, but when your baby is suddenly not a baby you will want these to remember everything by. And I mean seriously, look at those pictures up there. Of all of the many beautiful photographs that came from Natalia's newborn session, the photos with her Mum are the ones that make me want to cry. So much love.
Happy weekend X
PS: These were captured in my brand new studio space! I am so, so excited. While I can still carry out newborn sessions in your home, the studio is decked out with everything I need and I think you will love it too!
