It was a quiet morning when I knocked on their door softly at 7am. I was trying to be so cautious not to wake anyone up that would have still been asleep. What I found inside was the happiest family I've ever crossed paths with so early in the morning. Pancakes were already cooking, the coffee was freely flowing, and there was plenty of laughter to go around. It was the sort of dream I have for my own family, though I just think we have not reached that level of morning happiness yet.
I love sessions with just baby and Mama (and dad too!). I think all mamas (okay, parents in general) need to have a session with their children. Usually we're all too busy toting the camera around and chasing our kids to snap a picture. It's good to get out from behind the camera and into the frame with them from time to time. They are going to want to see you when they look back on the photos of their childhood. Which is exactly what this mama did with wanting photos of just herself with the newest addition to their family. Don't be hesitant to get in the frame. I promise it is worth it.
