I say this every time, but I’m pretty sure Newborn sessions are my absolute favorite. Especially when those Newborn sessions are for friends of mine!!
I feel like after becoming a Mom and seeing the Newborn stage first hand, I appreciate it so much more! Everyone is completely sleep deprived, but at the same time you’re almost living in a dream world – partly because everything is so hazy from the crazy sleep schedule – but everything is calm and quiet when Baby does sleep and you’re finding yourselves in a new kind of normal, adjusting to this new little person taking up space in your hearts and in your house.
Walking into Creighton and Sammi’s home, I felt that sort of dream-reality shift going on. Creighton has a ton of house projects going on getting ready for their move in a few months, but even with the construction chaos, there was a calm in their quiet house. Instrumental music played softly, Sebastian mostly slept or was cuddled through the session, Creighton and Sammi took turns snacking and just relaxing, and everyone came over to investigate what was going on in the living room.
Creighton and Sammi, thank you both so much for letting me document this time in your lives! I love you guys so much, and I can’t wait to watch Sebastian grow!
