When Jenna first told me about her pregnancy, I may have let out a little squeal! I have had the pleasure of working with Jenna since she was a mom of two and now she has FOUR beautiful blessings! Theodore was so mellow for his session and his older siblings just adored him which made for smooth sailing when it came to pictures! Here’s a little Q&A with Jenna and then some favorites from his 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?
We decided to keep this pregnancy a secret from family and friends. I had a lot of health issues and we thought we were going to loose him that were unrelated to my health issues. We didn’t want to worry anyone. Let’s just say everyone was shocked after he was born! We had a c section scheduled at 36 weeks and he was born at 2:25pm. Since it was a surprise, it was just my husband and I.
What was the first thing you thought when you saw your baby for the first time?
I was really worried if he would have to go to the NICU since his sister was also born at 36 weeks and needed to. He ended up needing to go and I was so emotional since I knew the road we had ahead of us.
What was your favorite part about our session together?
My favorite part was knowing that Angie was capturing these precious moments and of course catching up with her!
Do you have a favorite image from your session? Was there any favorite setups or props used?
There are so many to choose! I love the ones with one of the kids and him. They show there personalities and how in love they are with him.
How did you prepare for our photo shoot? How was your experience? Were you nervous or worried before? How did it turn out?
I was worried about what everyone was going to wear and having the time to actually fix myself up. That comes very rarely now a days! I also was hoping everyone was going to behave since I have four kids. Thank you Angie for the candy! They all did wonderfully!
What would be your advice to someone getting newborn photographs taken?
To try and relax and know you are in good hands. Angie takes so many different photos that there are many to choose from. It’s always so hard to decide!
Do you have other children? How do they react to the new baby? Feel free to share a little about them here.
I have three other children besides him, four total. They all want to help and hold him. The last two are 18 months apart and she is constantly loving up on him, kisses galore! I’m really lucky they have all been so good with him.
Anything else you'd like to add about your session and final images?
They all were so precious! And now I have them to look back on for years to come. Thank you, Angie
Now, enjoy some favorites from Theodore’s session!
