A Session from Before | Fort Worth Lifestyle Newborn Photographer

This session was from earlier in the year before the world shut down with a pandemic.

During this session, things were “normal”. I remember we talked about regular session things like, how they were adjusting to a 3rd child, newborn sleeping and eating habits, past sessions together and our plans for the rest of the year. We also spent a LOT of time talking about this precious girls INSANE birth story.

All you need to know is that she is a miracle and her arrival story is bonkers. Just bonkers.

But we didn’t discuss coronavirus.

We didn’t discuss masks.

I got to hug the big kids and hold the baby.

I stayed and talked longer than I should have.

Looking back on it now after so much has changed, it almost feels like it was a dream to have that much freedom. I miss those freedoms. I desperately miss hugging people outside of my household. I am such a hugger.

And I definitely miss holding newborns. I miss it so much. I honestly think that whenever I am able to hold a newborn again, I might cry.

Anyways, all this to say, things might not be normal but I am super grateful to be shooting at all. I am thankful for masks and hand sanitizer because they allow me to safely come into your home to capture the life that is still happening despite a pandemic.

If you are interested in what precautions I am taking and what to chat more about a session at home, feel free to shoot me an email to begin the conversation.
