Not a Baby Person
October 21, 2019
I’m not a “baby person.” And I realize that’s probably not the best way to sell myself as a newborn photographer, but stay with me for a moment.
I don’t feel the desire to hold other people’s babies like so many people do. I feel awkward and uncomfortable. I can’t quite figure out how to position their little body in my arms so that the baby will be comfortable, or I’ll be comfortable for that matter. I find myself counting down the minutes I have to hold the baby before I can give them back without being rude.
But when I had my own babies, that awkward feeling was never there. My babies and I fit together like puzzle pieces. We were one and the same. And when I held them I was never counting the minutes. My heart just filled with more love ever moment that we were together.
That is why I love newborn photography. I love watching families become one with their baby. Whether or not you start out a “baby person,” your baby will make you their person. And you will find more love for that tiny being then you ever thought possible. That’s what I want to capture.
Photographing newborns with their families is breathtaking. There is magic in capturing that developing relationship. As I have learned to embrace that I am not a “baby person,” I have found a much more fulfilling role as a newborn photographer. The special memories you make with your newborn are moments to treasure, and I find it so beautiful to play a small part in welcoming your newborn home!
