CHICAGO NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHER: MELISSA MARIE PHOTOGRAPHY: BAKER FAMILY
I always tell my family clients that its not about the props but the people. Could we put your newborn in a fruit basket dressed like an eggplant? Sure. Would it be cute? Of course. Everything a baby does is adorable. But I say focus on people over props. When there’s two little ones in the household your days can blur together. The moments that may seem insignificant now: the feedings, the goofy song on your phone that the whole family chimes in on to soothe the baby, the meals that’s are a box of Mac n’cheese for the third time that week, these are the memories that when the fog fades you’ll want to remember. So busy into the Easter basket early…pause to admire how your little girl tries to put on daddy’s shoes. Embrace the Teddy Graham crumbed face. Time capsuled moments happen when we focus on people over props. Thank you Baker family for allowing me to do that with you guys.
