What is it about newborn babies that make just about every woman squeal with delight? Coming from a mother of zero, I can tell you what makes me squeal. This may seem a bit harsh, but I like it when they’re asleep. Now wait! You’re thinking what a horrible monster I am right? Why don’t you let me finish and I can explain myself (how many times have we all said that?). I love it when they are asleep because they are in zen baby mode. I think that they are having these wonderfully beautiful dreams that no adult can experience. I think that they are dreaming of some far-a-way land where they came from and are eager to get back. My theory is that is why they cry when they wake up. Reality sinks in and they’re back to a strange new world with lots of outside noises. I also really love sleeping babies because honestly, that’s the best time to photograph them. When they are quiet and asleep, far away from this world. Just look at Spencer below. He is the sweetest angel which makes this one of my favorite photos I have taken.
In general I just love kids. They are fun, full of life, and never really have to think about the mundane things in life that we adults do. Wouldn’t it be nice to travel back to the day’s of being a kid just for a week to experience the wonderment all over. Maybe we wouldn’t take our lives so seriously then. I digress. Look at Aedan here, only about a week old when he got his first of several glamor shots. Aedan, now seven years old, is one of the sweetest boys that you will ever meet. And brave! He already surfs and skateboards with his grandpa. Children are just beautiful angels, and while I don’t have any of my own, I make a really good aunt and baby sitter.
