I was so excited when Laura’s mother spilled the beans to me at her baby shower that she wanted me to take newborn photos for her. I can’t remember when the last time I took newborn photos was, possibly the time that my high school best friend tried to cram her daughter into a beautiful shabby chic bucket and dear sweet baby was having none of it. Needless to say, I am not the type of newborn photographer who folds your baby up like a frog so I was a tiny bit intimidated going into this shoot, I don’t want to be the person who makes your boobs leak because I made your sweet new baby cry more, I really don’t want to do that to you. Thankfully his newborn photos were short and sweet, VERY sweet! I don't think I ruined his little life at all. I foraged the ivy and daisies (his mama’s favorite flowers and they also make an appearance in the background of some of her maternity photos) from around my house and used them to make a sweet little laurel around him. I also couldn’t resist the urge to bring along some roses and rose petals to drop around him since her maternity session also included a milk bath filled with rose petals. My boyfriend insists that roses are “girl stuff”, but I think baby C still looks dashing and handsome surrounded by them, what do you think?
