Do you remember when you first found out you were gonna have a little one? Remember how fun it was to dream about what he or she would look like? I always loved to dream weave about my babies and what their personalities would be and which one of us they would act like. I’m fascinated by all those traits and genetics and personalities and nature vs. nurture–all of that.
We waited to find out the gender of both kids, so we had those conversations about “Do you think the baby will have a cleft? Do you think the baby will have blue eyes or hazel eyes?” lasted the length of my pregnancies. Once we decided we would stop at two kids, (after the feeling of carrying the baby), that whole mystery and surprise was what I would miss most.
What’s cool is that now that they are here, it still never gets old to me. I am constantly surprised how much our son is like me and our daughter is just like my husband. They aren’t mixed. I swear their DNA is not 50/50–it is 99/1.
The point of all this is that once that baby is out and your little one starts to show you his or her personality, make sure you take some pics to mark your new next step in your life: your sweet little family.
Who is this little guy? Is he a perfect mix of both parents? Is he a mini-me? If you’re trying to think of when you should schedule family pics, I suggest waiting until after 4 months. When the little person is younger than 4-ish months, we often don’t get to see as much personality as you’d want to show. That sweet little face often gets lost in mom or dad’s arms. So, if he (or she) is 4 months or older, he is often awake enough and strong enough to hold his head up high and tell us who he is! :)
Are you a new family? Do you have a little one on the way? Call me for your own session. I am mostly taking travel sessions, but I have pockets of availability for The Woodlands/Spring families.
Thank you for a fun and easy session with your sweet man. He is a doll!
