Every baby is so special but there is something unique about having your first one. Becoming a parent changes you in so many ways but it's not something you can understand ahead of time by reading a book or blog post. You just have to experience it. You learn to make do with less. Less sleep, less time for yourself, less quiet, but you're give back so much. You grow alongside your baby into a new, stronger version of yourself. And that's what makes newborn photography so special, I not only get to take pictures of sweet, new babies, but of parents becoming their new selves too.
I always love seeing the combination of nerves and excitement when a couple has their first baby. The new parents love their little one so much that their hearts could burst and at the same time are terrified of breaking such a tiny little person. (I never got over my fear of carrying a baby on the stairs. I used the carrier a lot. lol)
If an at home or studio location isn't a good fit, choosing a meaningful location for your family is another great option. This session was photographed at the University where the husband works and, though not something you'd typically associate with a newborn, the ivy league vibes really fit this family perfectly.
Let the baby-gramming begin! (We all know and love that new baby instagram spam.)
