How is it August already!? This summer has flown by, and I am in complete denial that Emma starts first grade in just a few weeks. Why can't it be summer all year long waaahhh.
Alright now down to business; I want to share this sweet newborn session with you today. Oh that newborn stage. Such a beautiful, fleeting, exhausting and wonderful season of parenthood. You're sleep deprived, the laundry and dishes pile up, and you spend your days donning a messy bun and milk stained t-shirts.
In the midst of exhaustion there is a deep sense of joy and excitement. This tiny human you've waited for for so long is finally here! You are overwhelmed with love for this little miracle. You stare at their tiny fingers and toes. You study their sweet little face, and hear their heartbreakingly beautiful cries and coos, and it makes your heart so full.
I absolutely love these sessions. As a mama myself I totally get how quickly this season passes, and the importance of documenting it before its gone. It was so nice getting to photograph this sweet family. Welcome to the world baby Ava!
Dad wanted to re-create an old family photo- so fun! (above)
Hope you have a great week!
