Jared and Courtney welcomed me into their home just days after their son Lawson was born so that I could document their little dude within the first week of his life. I had a great time getting to know them as they were getting to know their sweet baby boy!
Sometimes, if I’m really lucky, I get to be present for a really great “first” at a newborn session. Examples… the first smile, the first sneeze, the first hiccups. Those are always really fun, cute little moments. I’ll never forget the “first” that I got to experience at the Fletcher’s home.
I was upstairs photographing the nursery, and Jared and Courtney had Lawson downstairs and were trying to feed him. All of the sudden, I hear something I don’t usually hear at newborn sessions: extremely loud, uncontrollable laughter. Come to find out, Lawson had his very first, um, bathroom incident while they were getting his diaper changed. And not the kind that’s pretty easy to dry or clean up. A wardrobe change for all involved quickly followed. It really was pretty hysterical to hear the laughter, and then the story, and just to witness first hand the thrill of having a brand new baby! Courtney and Jared have already figured out that in times like that… when things don’t exactly go as planned, when there’s a change of clothes needed, laughing is just your best bet.
Thank you for letting me capture this sweet time for your family, Courtney and Jared!
