At 16 days, sweet baby Tomi was pushing the limits of guaranteed newborn-ness.  He didn’t really settle into a deep sleep as easily as a younger baby might have, and he was touchier than most of my newborns.  But he was still perfect.  I think 4 years ago, a session like this might have stressed me out.  There was a much higher feeding/soothing/snuggling/shushing/settling to shooting ratio during this session.  Four years ago, I would have been sitting there wondering. Wondering if he would ever settle down. Wondering if I would be able to get the poses I wanted.  Wondering if I would be able to capture enough images for his mama.  Four years ago I would have worried and felt impatient and discouraged.  But that was four years ago.

Instead, I drank in his newness.  I stared at his long lashes and full lips and darling curls.  I snuggled him.  I enjoyed every minute with Tomi and his big brother and his beautiful mama.  Because I knew.  I knew he was perfect and the session was going perfectly for him.  We didn’t get to everything his mama and I would have liked to, but it didn’t matter, because what we got was perfect.

I am so grateful for those four years of experience.  And I am so grateful to have been able to shoot this session.
