My friend, Shelley, gave me the most beautiful gift at my baby shower: a newborn photo session! The photos she took of Everett turned out so perfectly, despite his being a very uncooperative model. We had the hardest time getting him to stay asleep, and she was unbelievably patient throughout the entire experience. Seriously, I'm pretty sure she is the baby whisperer!
Chad took newborn photos of Kaden that turned out amazingly well, but our attempt at newborn photos of Everett was disastrous. Chad's exact words were: "And this is why I am not a newborn photographer." I was terrified we were going to have to one day explain to our second child why we had no newborn photos of him, when we had them of his older brother. Thank goodness Shelley saved the day!
