Throughout the year, I've had the opportunity to take pictures of a few newborns allowing me to learn how to position them and how to get the flow of the shoot down. I think it's becoming my favorite type of session. Being able to hold a newborn is just amazing. Also, witnessing the excitement of bringing a new life into this world just tops it for me. But this is the first time I found myself in tears while editing. I am usually so caught up in making sure the pictures are perfectly in focus and sharp and exposed properly and blah...blah...blah... I have forgotten to truly look at the baby in the photo which is pure perfection. God's perfect blessing and creation. When I would zoom in, my eyes would just well up with tears. Lucy is just perfect. It didn't matter what settings I used on my camera, this baby girl is Natalie and Christian's flawless baby girl. From her sweet pouty lips to her gorgeous big eyes and sweet baby nose, I can't think of any other word to describe her. Perfect.
Congratulations, Natalie, Christian, Evan and Ainsley. I am so incredibly thankful to know you and to be a part of this special time in your lives. Oh, and I can't leave this post without giving a huge shout out and thank you to MJ, Natalie's little brother, who let us take over his room with its awesome light for three hours.
Welcome to the world, Lucy Austin Lindberg!
