(Inside: Moms want beautiful photos of their new baby. During the busy, it’s possible to grab some shots you will love.)
It’s so special to have a new baby. You want to photograph every minute, except you are so tired.
But still, it is possible to get your pictures without you being the one who takes them.
Ask for help.
Honestly, I have to remind myself that people are willing to help, they just need to be asked.
Or at least that’s how I feel.
This new momma asked if I’d snap some quick pictures of her new baby and family.
All the kids were wiggly, and schedules were busy, so I just snapped what we could get for a few minutes here and there a couple of times I stopped by to hold that sweet baby.
That was enough.
I think we got beautiful photos of the family’s new baby and the baby’s siblings. Family photography is really about taking lots of pictures here and there when convenient, then running them through the fun filters on your phone and/or computer.
You just do it, and don’t worry about if “it’s all turning out perfect.” Because, no matter what, you’ll end up with some sweet pictures that capture the moments. And years from now, you look back on, and instinctively your hand will go to your heart. Because the memories of what it felt like to be in that moment flood back, and it feels like you skipped back in time.
