Anyone that knows me, knows how much I LOVE babies. Ever since I was a little girl, I was always drawn to them. If we were at a social gathering, you’d find me right next to the mom with the new baby.
For Pete’s sake, I had FOUR of my own babies! I was so excited to have them for myself and cuddle them whenever I felt. No one was going to take them from my arms, telling me it was time for them to go home. They emit pure joy and I was smitten.
There is just something about their innocence and promise of new beginnings. I could cuddle a newborn all day. I love their tiny fingers, lips, and their perfectly pink skin. They fit perfectly into your arms.
I have flirted with the idea of photographing newborns for quite some time. One thing holding me back is the investment in trying something, and then later finding it really wasn’t for me.
Last week, I attended The Blink Conference in Scottsdale, AZ. I had the pleasure of working side-by-side with Michelle Newell, one of the leaders in the industry. She allowed me to “test the waters” so to speak, without investing a large amount of money.
I think I have fallen in love…….
