Ooooh babies!

It’s springtime - which seems to mean lots of babies on the way?! Or…is that a thing? I’m not sure, but I’m going to pretend it is ;)

Back to the topic at hand: BABIES. Newborn babies to be more specific. I don’t photograph a lot of babies, because if it’s true that history repeats itself - then I am definitely the opposite of the baby whisperer. Not even joking…do you know how many times I’ve heard a mom tell me “he/she is normally such a good baby!” Soooorry…I didn’t mean to ruin the happy baby streak, but here I am, camera in hand! :D

Here’s something that you may not know, I have never in my life changed a diaper. I am a 33 year old woman …NOT.ONCE. I didn’t have little cousins to look after, or little siblings, and I can count on one hand how many times I actually babysat in my life. WELL, here we are, where all my lifelong friends are making babies and I’m still living the #dogmom life to the fullest. BUT, that doesn’t mean I don’t LOVE babies all the same! I don’t advertise for baby shoots often, because to be honest - they’re outside my niche and in my case, difficult. I often block off up to 4 hours of time to spend with newborns and their families, because that’s just the way life goes when you’re brand new to this world and everyone else is on your agenda ;)

BUT, on special occasions I am up for the challenge! Especially when it’s a great friend of mine who I’ve known since the 3rd grade popping out a beautiful brand new baby boy :) I loved spending the day with Carson, his older sister Klaire, and momma Keri! With some serious teamwork involved, I was able to capture some precious moments for their family to enjoy for years to come!

Welcome to the world, Carson William! You are SOOO loved!
