Augustine’s Newborn Shoot

October 17, 2016

The first few weeks of Augustine’s life were such a blur but full of so many wonderful emotions. We were beyond tired but just filled with a tremendous amount of love for our little guy. Matthew and I had gone back and forth about doing a newborn shoot and finally decided that it would be such a special way to mark this time. Oh my gosh I am soo glad we did! We decided to go with Photos by Monika because she’s kind of an expert when it comes to newborn photography. It’s incredible looking back on these photos now and remembering how tiny he was in those early days. If we feel that way now, when it hasn’t even been 2 months, I know we’re going to really cherish these photos as he gets bigger!

I was really nervous going out to take these photos {first car ride, longest time away from home, new mommy emotions, etc. etc}, but Monika made the whole experience so enjoyable and easy. We got to sit back while she worked her magic. She’s a mom of 3 boys so she also had some great advice for us.

Augustine was such a sleepy prince during the shoot. That was after he peed on me with that first photo, though! I was holding him and all of a sudden felt a little trickle down my arm. I guess he was a little too comfortable! I think I’m going to have to tease him for this one day down the road!
