Baby N - Riverside California Newborn Photographer

One of my favorite parts of the newborn session is getting to hear the family's story. How they decided to have a tiny human, how the pregnancy or adoption process went/is going, what their first few days as new parents have been like. I just love really knowing the story behind my clients. 

This little guy's mom and dad were just the best. They were both so easy to talk to, funny, and they just could not stop loving on their new baby as he had his first photo shoot. 

Every family has a story. Every story is different, unique, important. Parenting is probably the hardest job I've ever had. You have to love them while they keep you up at night, refuse to eat the well rounded and healthy dinner you've made for them, while they scream "NO" when you ask them to stop throwing their toys. I came from a job where, when you did a good job, you received a commendation or when you didn't you received a write up. There are no commendations as a parent, and if we're honest, most of the time we're pretty certain we're messing it all up. It's when they are adults and on their own we finally get the satisfaction of enjoying our hard work, watching them live life as a respectable and kind human. While I wait for adulthood I hold on to the academic awards my oldest is getting, how happy and silly he is all the time, how he calls me his best friend, and how my toddler grabs my face and presses our noses together and yells "mmmmmmy mmmmmmmmommy!" as my commendations as a mother. It's all I need. 

Here are some of my favorites from this cutie's session to enjoy..
