Can you believe this guy is almost 6 months old already?! I'm a terrible aunt for taking this long to blog his session, but trust me, it's worth the wait! Now, I have a history of tough sessions with nieces and nephews (and my own kids for that matter) so I was prepared to be put to work. Caden surprised me though by being fairly laid back! I asked Bri some of the usual questions about her pregnancy and the session itself. See what she says and check out some favorites from the session.
Please tell me some small details of your birthing process. When did you go into labor? Time of birth? Who all was at the hospital with you?
I went into labor the morning after my due date. It was about 2am Wednesday morning. We went to the hospital around 5am and they admitted me. I was in labor for about 12 hours and toward the end of my labor I got an epidural. The incredible thing about my delivery was that I only had to push for about 15 minutes. After that he was born at 3:28 pm on November 15. He was perfect.
What was the first thing you thought when you saw your baby for the first time?
So many things were happening that I don't really remember the exact thought. They set him down on my chest and I just stared at him. It was amazing.
Do you have a favorite image from your session? Was there any favorite setups or props used?
My favorite image is where my husband is holding our son. Seeing him as a first time father is heartwarming.
How did you prepare for our photo shoot? How was your experience? Were you nervous or worried before? How did it turn out?
I don't think I prepared too much. Other than talking about some colors and outfits we wanted to use we just let it up to Angie.
What would be your advice to someone getting newborn photographs taken?
Make sure you get pictures with you and your child together.
