Taking pictures of newborns is kind of like having one of your own. You get peed on, you soak in their newborn smell, you wash their poop off your blankets… BUT no one woke me up last night.

Funny thing is, if you really know me.. even when I have a newborn, they don’t wake me up at night. Lee wakes up when our babies cry in the night and then has to WAKE ME UP to get up and take care of them.

I’m kind of a heavy sleeper. I always have the best sleeping babies… but maybe that’s just because I don’t hear them crying :/ hmmmm.

 

Here are two babies that are in my life right now. I don’t schedule newborn shoots. I don’t have the time to commit to them right now, but aren’t they so delightful?!

How come some things are only cute on babies? Rolls upon rolls upon rolls, just don’t look the same on a 35 year old. My husband wouldn’t think a fuzzy back and ears was something to be desired yet when I hold a newborn who is fuzzy I die!

I saw some pictures of my good friend’s baby the other day and could NOT believe how big she had grown in the year since I’d seen her! I took these photos on a sunny October afternoon last year for this chubby one year old’s birthday. She is a miracle baby and as you can see is obviously the cutest obese person you have ever seen. ;)

Oh babies.

I am starting to think little babes are the best to shoot. I have an addiction to their presh little smiles and giggles, oh my! This little cutie pie was NO exception. I could have taken like 400 snaps of her!

I just wanted to share a sneak peek with her mom, so she could crush on her little one! Thanks for letting me hang out with your doll while the light was perfect. It completed my day!

Doesn’t it always seem like babies come in batches?  You know, like everyone I know right now is pregnant with boys.   Seems like if you put in an order to Heaven for a baby, and they are busy making boy babies, then you get hooked up with a boy baby.  When we were having Delia, seriously. everyone. I. knew. was. having. a. girl. baby.

Thank goodness this time when we put our order in they were making boy babies…. or we may have been done with putting in orders.  But we are not.  Yes that is right, we want to have a house full of Porter kids.  Some have even heard Lee and I talk of 7 babies….  But for now, we are completely content with our four.

I just hope next time we get an order in for a baby they are making cute ones.  (But then again with faces like us, of course we’ll get a cutie pie!) I’m kidding, I’m kidding.

Owen and our baby were from the same batch and I could NOT get enough of his sweetness during our shoot.

Totally and completely adorable!
