Here are a few snaps of our girl at 5 weeks old. I’ve always wanted to do this kind of newborn photography, but never really had babies to “practice” with. Most moms ask for babies in baskets, “pretty shots,” and everything posed. I really wanted to do something different to share another way! I like to see the real details, to remember. One day these clothes won’t fit, she won’t be this tiny, and I may not still have these blankets. I want to be able to picture each moment as it actually was. I hope this helps some other moms see that documentary photography can be a really special way to photograph babies.
