Newborns are so interesting to work with. Thinking that ten day old Harlow would be asleep for most of her photo shoot, I was planning on being able to mold and shape her pliable new body into soft curves and circular shapes. But Harlow had other ideas and by gosh, she was going to stay awake for her photo debut!
She’s such a good baby. Little Harlow only cried once (hunger pains set in) and only wet the backdrop once. Not bad for a newborn. Holding her brought back memories of holding my own girls at that age and how time truly does fly by. I’m betting Harlow has already changed quite a bit in the last two weeks since these were taken.
Detail shots are some of my favorite. Little toes, wrinkles only acceptable to newborns, the curve of an ear, a perfect little mouth and toes…amazing details that only nature could create.
Okay, I lied…I think these images, of mother and child, are my favorite. Someday Harlow will look back and be amazed at not only her small self but also her mom. And she may be cradling her own newborn against her chest, feeling all kinds of love coming out of her for this baby, and realize that her mom must have felt the same way about her.
