Well, it would appear I am not in fact, Ironman. I never get sick. I don’t know how because I am always on the run, am grateful to catch one good solid meal in a day and drinking water is like pulling teeth for me. But, regardless, I’m rarely under the weather. Perhaps it is the immunity that comes with having three kids. Not-so-much the case this morning. I woke up with no voice and pressure behind my eyes that could launch rockets for NASA. I had two options, invest in a hazmat suit for the viewing or post them online. 🙂
So, mom and dad’s preview comes to you via studio blog while I undertake operation quarantine up to my tissue mountain in a Lysol fog.
The session was simple and easy, Haddy is very laid back and calm. A perfect first baby for new parents. We tried a little winter theme in honor of her middle name, we also captured a set I made that proved to me how much of a safety nerd I really am. I couldn’t photograph her with even an inch gap between her swing and the pillow underneath so of course I fiddled with that for ten minutes to ensure there was indeed–no gap. And true to form with an overly-cautious, wash-your-hands-every-five-minutes, look-both-ways-before-crossing and don’t-lean-back-in-your-chair photographer, the backdrop clip proceeded to try and bend behind the set while I’m holding and posing her, baby wasn’t where that action was happening but it definitely threw my overly-cautious side on overdrive. So we tested my Photoshop skills and both stayed in the shot the whole time. Mom definitely wanted the swing shot and I was not going to let my hall monitor safety squad team captain side get the best of me. (But I will most likely have a ridiculous contraption made that makes my inner safety geek happy in the future.) And boy was mama right, that shot was great. Have to have one made for the studio for sure.
This little family was so sweet. You could just see the total awe on their faces anytime they looked at baby Hadley. She had the most perfect little facial features (a perfect blend of mom and dad), it was hard not to just sit and stare at her. 🙂
It was a beautiful family, a beautiful baby and a beautiful day. I look forward to the opportunity to watch miss Hadley grow! Here is what we captured.
