Can I highly suggest that everyone make this happen when they have a baby?
So whenever I get a new client obviously the first thing we discuss is what the event is for. When Leah called me and told me she was having new born pictures made I had several questions. How old was the baby? Where the pictures were going to be? What was the colors? How formal? You get the picture. She answered all my questions and the only thing that shocked me was that her precious baby was only 3 weeks old! I was in a complete fog when my kids were three weeks old so I was wondering honestly how all this was going to work out.
Well, Leah came over and we immediatley hit it off. I was amazed at how calm and collected she was. She had a newborn AND family at her house and was getting ready for a photo shoot. I immediatley felt honored that I got this time with her to let her sit, relax, doll her up and be the one to help her feel like the beauty she is. Now I know a lot of people get their baby's picture made at 3 weeks but rarely is mom part of it and if she is her get ready routine probably did not involve a professional.
My point is that it is the most PERFECT time to hire someone to do your hair and makeup. What a treasure to have these pictures. The bonus though is that mom has a good reason to go let someone do something for her for a minute AND that involves feeling bautiful without trying at all. Here are some pics she sent me...I will let them do the talking.
