baby photography session with Lilah

I was an aunt before I was a mother and it made me want to be a mom. Playing with my new niece makes me want to be a new mom all over again (shhh don’t tell Jake!). My baby brother Justin (even though he is a Daddy now I will always call him my baby brother) and his wife Sarah had their first baby in January–the perfect, adorable, and easy-going Lilah . They live several hours from us and I have missed them since they moved, but now that they are parents I wish even more that we lived closer together. I love watching first time parents–it’s like I want to whisper… or yell, “See! See! I told you it was worth it!” The sleepless nights, the loss of freedom, the dirty diapers, the tantrums… everything you think is such a sacrifice. It’s nothing; it’s a spec of sand on your favorite beach. I love watching my brother and his wife dote on Lilah. They are such laid-back parents. Not a nervous nelly at all like I was. It’s like Lilah has always been here. And in a way I guess she has because we always knew she’d be here eventually. She looks just like her parents–blond and blue-eyed. And, you better believe she’ll be tall. I am so excited that I have this beautiful little baby girl to watch grow up and you know I will be there to spoil and photograph her every minute I can.

Jody, these photos are simply wonderful. You’ve captured this little baby’s big personality so well. I found your site through another site and am so glad I did. I also love family and children portraiture and am dipping into those waters myself (slowly, very slowly). It’s always inspirational to find other going after their dreams, so congratulations to you for taking such steps for yours. I’ll definitely be back to see more pics!
