Babies come in all sizes but I must admit, the teeny tiny ones make my job a little easier on my old joints and limbs, haha! So yes, I loved that Sweet Baby Chloe was just a tiny 5.5 pounder because it made holding her and carrying her around that much easier on my arms and back.
But in all seriousness, Chloe made my job fairly easy. She was still so tiny and new that she was still naturally pulling her limbs in towards herself so I didn’t have to fight against her wanting to stick her arms in the air or not want her legs tucked up under her. I will say though that the tininess worked against me when it came to her outfits as I was constantly tucking the extra bits of fabric behind and/or under her because everything was just so big on her (although that in itself was super cute!).
All that said though, she hated the bucket, like she really, really hated that thing! She would sit in it long enough for me to get her back covered (which only takes a short amount of time), and then she would use those little lungs to let us know how unhappy she was. It made me a little sad because I had really wanted to create a matching photo for Emma + Scott from their son’s newborn session, but it just wasn’t meant to be.
And you know what, that’s an important thing to keep in mind, sometimes babies are gonna do what babies want to do. And although we can sometimes find ways to make them comfy or happy with a setup, a lot of the time, they just won’t do it and you have to be okay with that. It really is a good lesson for the studio and for life I suppose.
Anyway, I had just the best time every with this precious little one and I truly loved getting to see this wonderful family again. It was such a great morning catching up with them and cuddling their brand new tiny human.
