Newborn photo sessions.. I’m assuming it’s not just in our case. If you have a boy, SOMEONE will get peed on before it’s all said and done.
Henry was a “dream baby”.. That means he was a sleepy boy. He slept the entire session which lasted about two hours. I was amazed at how the photographer could mold this little limp human into a puddle of cuteness without waking him up. Granted, he was only 9 days old at the time. But how he didn’t wake up during the squeals after she and I both were peed on is beyond me. Yea, he peed on us both but momma wanted “nakey” photos of her 8 pound 10 ounce boy. Luckily, I brought an extra dress to change into for our first family photos just in case this were to happen. Diana, our photographer pulled thru the rest of the session in soaked blue jeans. (You go Diana).
Note: To the ladies who want their first family photo with their naked bundle of joy held between them and their partner, TURN THE BABY TOWARDS YOUR PARTNER! #yourewelcome
Although our photographer offered cute props and outfits, I wanted to go with neutral colors and an all natural route. Hence, naked Henry. I did, however, have one request. This chicken obsessed gal wanted a photo of her baby in a chicken egg. So I found a digital download online of said egg, sent link to Diana for approval and man did she deliver!
