newborn pictures.

We are so the typical parents of a first born.

We are documenting every second of this child's life. And why shouldn't we?

So last week we took Baby Girl to a photographer recommended to me by a girl I used to work with. I had seen photos she'd taken of my friend's daughter and they were absolutely precious, so I was pretty excited about getting Baby Girl's pictures done.

I wanted to get them done quickly and was so excited that we got in as soon as we did.

It was definitely an experience. Taking photos of an un-potty trained newborn with no diaper? Not fun. But I think the pictures were so worth it.

After the 45 minute ride out to the lady's studio, Baby Girl was wide awake. And hungry. She needed to be asleep for photos, so we gave her a good 4 ounces of formula and she was out.

Of course all that food had to go somewhere.

She fought sleep for quite a while. Then she ended up peeing all over multiple props and even left another surprise for the lady. On a white blanket. My child...

It took 2 hours and multiple set changes, but we definitely got some good photos. I am ridiculously glad we got these done. They are definitely photos we can cherish for years to come.
