When Dayla was born I wasn’t a photographer yet. When we had Sebastian I was so excited to have my very own newborn model. I planned all sorts of poses and props and pictured myself photographing him day after day. The first time I tried to photograph him I learned WHY it is better to go back to work after 3 months, not after one week postpartum. It is very physically demanding to photograph newborns, and a even more of a challenge to a healing body.
All this to say that my expectations with photographing August were much lower. My hope was just to get one good shot. Here is my favorite….
