This post will be short and sweet in terms of text because momma is tired and has lots to do! I will say that doing your own newborn photos is very emotionally and physically challenging, but also super rewarding. I learned to just embrace some imperfection, and as a good friend of mine says, sometimes “good enough and done” is better than “perfect but not done”. So with a few time outs (for mom!), a bit of discomfort, and a really supportive husband, we got ‘er done! We did the shoot of just him alone when he was eight days old. And then we finished with some family photos and lifestyle images a week later for my sanity’s sake.
