The feeding, the burping, the swaddling, the shushing, the sleeping, the tea-drinking, the snuggling, the smiling, the tummy time. And repeat. I was overjoyed when Danielle and Mina decided to document their morning with their new baby, lovely and adorable O. A bit different than a brand new newborn session, we scheduled the shoot for when O was about 11-weeks old: Danielle and Mina knew their routine, O was more interactive than a days-old baby, and the goal was to capture her awake time versus her sleepy time.
My heart was stolen upon first sight of this sweet girl; her eyes were instantly captivating and engaging. I couldn’t help but laugh out loud at her reaction to the little mobile going round and round above her in the swing – she showed genuine surprise and happiness at each little animal that came into her sight, over and over again. Mina and Danielle had their feeding routine down pat like a well-oiled machine. And O seemed so completely content despite a little cough and impending trip to the pediatrician. Danielle and Mina, congratulations again and thanks so much for letting me into your little world for the morning. How far we have come since our days at camp!
