268: new baby. new mama.
I have always hesitated to agree taking any portraits for people because my favorite part of photography is noticing things. Noticing things in the everyday, things other people might not notice at all or might not realize are worth noticing to begin with. I've always enjoyed pay attention to what's already happening around me rather than trying to set up things or getting people organized and arranged. I don't like telling them where to stand or what to do or seeing them self conscious about how they are going to look.
But, little newborn babies. . . they might win me over. One of our family friends just had a beautiful little baby boy. Newborn pictures seemed like a necessity. Even when he wasn't too happy about the whole being photographed thing, he was still pretty perfect.
