Happy Friday, dolls! Charlotte is officially 6 weeks old, and I’m looking for the secret to slowing down time. She’s growing so fast, and I can’t believe it’s already been 6 weeks since she was born. She’s already rolling over, and absolutely loves the sound of her own voice.
She’s such a sweetheart, and I don’t know how I’m supposed to go back to work in 6 weeks. I’m going to need some serious tips for coping with separation anxiety.
I haven’t shared my birth story yet, but I wanted to go ahead and share my favorite part of our hospital stay. While we were in the hospital, Bella Baby Photography came to our room for a complimentary newborn photo session. (All in-hospital sessions are complimentary for newborns).
Luckily I had brought some really cute bows and props, as I knew I’d want to have photos taken. Our photographer was a miracle worker… to be honest I had no idea how to pose a newborn, or how to keep the baby comfortable without making her cry. She knew all the tips and tricks to keep Charli perfectly content.
Our entire session took less than 20 minutes. And two hours later, the photographer came back to our room and showed us the slideshow of our retouched, final images.
I’m not sure if it was the hormones or the pictures, but I was bawling my eyes out when I saw the slide show. Our pictures turned out absolutely beautifully, and we ended up purchasing the entire digital package along with printed images and a canvas.
Bella Baby made it so easy to capture our baby’s beauty right after she was born. I couldn’t have imagined trying to take my newborn to a photo studio for a photoshoot in the days following our release from the hospital. For anyone thinking of having newborn pictures taken in the hospital, I highly recommend it. I will absolutely cherish the pictures of Charli forever.
