“Babies are the berries!” This is something my mother always said. As a child and teen I could never really understand it. I mean, really. They have stinky diapers, they cry and quite honestly they get all the attention, don’t they? Not until I got older could I understand what she meant–when my maternal instincts kicked in and of course as soon as I had my own children. They are just so sweet and happy (for the most part), expressive, curious, loveable, cuddly and how can you help yourself from taking a bite from those chunky thighs! Ahhh, babies 😉 Let’s reminisce shall we? The smell of Dreft…the familiar fragrance of Johnson Baby Shampoo…brings me right back to that baby stage. Better than any high end perfume in my book!
I was scheduled to do this little beauty’s newborn shoot back in November of 2013. However, my body betrayed me and physically I was unable to do the shoot because of my bulged disc issue. I was back in PT and my year ended a bit earlier than expected. I did promise to come back to see her for her 6 month shoot and this is that morning with Ms. Grace. She was just on the verge of sitting sturdily on her own so we wound up doing more lying down shots than sitting. We bobbed around her beautiful nursery and then she was ready for her late morning nap. These sessions are so fun. I love all of the different expressions you can get and in such a short amount of time, too! Enjoy!
