My sweet little boy at 5 days old.
Now, I have to say, being the photographer and the mama makes getting newborn photos somewhat difficult. You'd think it would be the opposite, but being the one that has to do the setting up, the feedings, actually taking the photos, plus taking care of the other 3 kids on top of that...well, you get the picture. It's easier said than done, that's for sure! When I saw this image on Pinterest (I know, I know...Pinterest again!) I was inspired to take some simple, real photos of my gorgeous little babe. And I am so glad I did.
To me, these photos perfectly capture Crew as the tiny, curled up, and perfect little newborn that he is. I'm still going to try to take some more "professional" shots, but I know these will be some of my faves. His cute little faces. His curled up hands and feet. His all-around "new-ness". I just love my little guy so much. I'm so glad I took those 15 minutes to capture these shots.
