I have seen a lot of extremely proud and happy parents in the Red Bridge Raleigh Newborn Studio. Over the 3 years that it has been open so far I have seen A LOT of proud parents, exhausted parents, happy and elated parents – heck, I have even had a few parents fall a sleep on the couch IN the studio during the session. Hey, I get it! It is warm. There are womb sounds and for the first time in a week or two you have a bit of a break and someone not on you and another adult is responsible for your baby even for a brief period of time.
But when Jerry and Jessica arrived in the newborn studio for Silas’ newborn session these were some mighty PROUD parents. I mean, you can see it written all over their faces in the parent and baby pictures. I have known Jerry for a few years in a few different scenarios and this guy was PROUD of his new little man in his life.
AND Jerry and Jessica weren’t the only ones smiling – Silas was super uuber smily for his newborn session and it was funny too because I noticed about halfway through that Silas smiling was coupled with mom Jessica talking. So – I did what any other newborn photographer would do – I said “Jessica, I don’t care what you talk about. But I just want you to talk.” So Jessica repeated the last many sentences that she had said to Jerry over and over again and Silas just smiled. It was insane to see! AND we got so many good smiles too as a result!
GAH! Silas, I loved everything about your session. I loved that your parents let me do what I do and that they were up for anything and I love how you guys love each other. Keep up the growing little one and I hope to see you again real soon!
