Missing the Photograph or Missing Motherhood?

Meandering down the road, the baby quietly content in the stroller and her big brother pushing his stuffed bunny in my old doll stroller.  Everything about this moment is marvelous.  All I can think is, “I wish I had my phone.”  Why?  Because grandma’s would die to see this moment.  Instagram clearly needs to display this adorableness for the entire world to see. My disappointment that I could not share this picture via technology rocked me.

Newborn Photographer [Buffalo, Minnesota]- Maisen

Seniors pose when directed.  Adults smile when asked to.  Children [occasionally] follow direction.  Newborns do not.  But I love me some newborns.  Being a newborn photographer is blissful.  This teeny tiny babies squirm, cry, fill diapers, and need to be fed.  All of this in a one hour span.  But, they are oh-so-worth it.

When You Just. Can't. Pinterest. {Buffalo, Minnesota Professional Photography}

If you don’t like it, forget the subject.  My mantra for crafting.  Photography is the very same way.  If you love it, do it.  Learn, practice, and mess with your camera. In every photo you will find new challenge and those fabulous images will mean so much to you. If you are freaking out, give it up.

My Dear Daughter {19/52 Buffalo, Minnesota Photography}

Baby girl, there just isn’t enough of this “time” thing.

Dedicating you this week, I paused.  You are EIGHT MONTHS OLD.  Daily (hourly, really) you assure me you of your infancy.  You cry for a bottle, to be rolled over, for faster spooning of baby-food from bowl to mouth. I spend so much time helping you through babyhood, I forget to appreciate it.

Professional lifestyle photography based out of Buffalo, Minnesota.

So many “firsts.”  So many “lasts.”
