There's NOTHING better than a first time mom and a newborn.  That wonder mixed with a little fear and total exhiliration at this beautiful little thing that belongs to her now.  Fear is the key.   It's just there for that first one. You're much too "smart" after that. :)   I will never forget that feeling.  No mother ever does.  The thought "they just gave it to me and sent me home" is pretty unnerving.   I can spot it right away and am at once empathetic and envious because it is truly a life affirming time and makes you feel so alive and important, doesn't it? It's GREAT! It was this way here in the studio last week.    A tiny girl in a BIG red tutu. That's Cruz. She's the newest addition to this wonderful family. Welcomed by a mom and dad, who are clearly crazy about each other and her, and her double-digit, twin siblings, Gage and Lila, she is the center of their universe.  She's got everyone jumpin' too! She'd kept them up all night before her session and then got here and had a few rocky moments but for the most part, slept like a baby.  Oh, wait, she IS a baby.   I don't really  like it when they sleep the ENTIRE session.  I actually love it when they cry and kick and make everyone jump to attention trying to figure out what's wrong.  Well, you know how I love to watch!  The Mama was exhausted and wanted something for a Christmas card and a nap. I tried to help her with the card. It was fun! Here's tiny Cruz.  (How cute is that name?)
