Newborn photos are giving me ALL the feels at the moment. My little baby Emma is almost 8 month old already and where the hell did that time go?
If I stop and think about it, Emma was only 3 months old when we bought our new house. Queue packing up a house, moving, unpacking and fixing up our old house to get that on the market, while we were already fixing up and selling my old unit turned investment property. Add in a whole host of Christmas activities in between, including hosting two large Christmas family events, and it's no surprise these last 4 months have disappeared.
Now though, I have a baby who loves to eat, says mamma and gets frustrated that she can't quite crawl yet and I'm left asking where my little newborn disappeared to when I wasn't paying attention! Talk about Mummy guilt.
I see newborn photos online and I feel such pangs that I've missed my chance to get a photo of my Emma like that. Looking so wrinkly and scrunched up and new. Of course I have photos of my baby girl - lots of them - but I don't think I will ever feel like I have enough. Hey, everyone is allowed one neurosis right?!
So this is my reminder to you - get photos! Of your baby, of your family, of you. Grab out your phone, pick up a camera, book a photographer - cough, cough, bet you can't guess which one I recommend, cough, cough, link to my contact page - but capture photos of you and your loved ones. As you are right now. Don't wait for the perfect season or time or weigh. Our kids change too darn fast and we can't get this time back.
And speaking of time disappearing, I'm just a touch behind on sharing some of my favourite photo sessions. This adorable newborn, three week old baby Liam who gave the most amazing facial expressions, is over 1 year old now. As I said, just a touch behind.
