It was so nice to spend time this past Wednesday with brand new baby Sydney and her moms. She was such a sweetheart, and I especially loved getting to use a blanket made by her great-grandmother, the bassinet one of her moms had slept in as a baby herself, and some very special quilts made just for her. As a formerly cloth-diapering mom myself I also totally loved the super cute diaper cover she had on.
One thing I often get asked about are feeding breaks during a newborn session — like most newborns, Sydney wanted to feed pretty frequently (such small tummies! So much growing to do!) and you know what? Every time she showed any hunger cues we just took a feeding break, no big deal at all — it’s how the rhythm of a newborn session often goes — get a few shots, take a break, get a few more shots, take another break — these tiny humans are just barely starting to get used to “outside” life so that’s just how it goes 🙂
Here are a few of my favorites from her newborn portrait session:
