I got to meet this precious baby boy when he was brand spankin' new so you can imagine my excitement to snuggle with him a few days later for his newborn photos. Let me just say, Michael was awesome. No surprise there, given who his mama is. ;)

Remember when I told you about his gorgeous mama? Well she is a big Dr. Seuss fan and Dad's a huge sports fan so we made sure to incorporate those ideas into Baby Michael's session. I just love those personal touches.

Oh and um... I know this doesn't surprise you, but I LOVE BABY FEET.

As the one usually behind the camera, I catch all kinds of great shots of my kids and great shots of my kids with their daddy. But of course, that means I'm usually left out of the picture. I do ask my husband to take a few shots here and there, and I jump into a photo booth every chance I get just so I can be in a few pictures with my boys. Ya know, so it's obvious that MOM was there. So that my boys will have pictures not only of their Mama, but with their Mama (even though I may feel (and look) like a hot mess LOL)

I think that's huge. And so important. And my heart just swells with love and then melts into a huge puddle when I see a picture of me with my boys...and come to think of it, I get the same feeling when I see ANY picture of a mom and her kids because I get it. I get the love, I get the laughter, I get the happiness. I get it. I've been there and it's something I never want to forget. I cherish those pictures just as my own boys will cherish them when they're all grown up and I'm long gone.

So why all the hubbub about getting OUT from behind the camera and IN the picture? 1. Didn't you just read all that ^ up there? IT'S A BIG DEAL, THAT'S WHY! 2. because your big chance is here to do just that: I've decided to offer Mommy & Me sessions and I'm beyond excited. mommy and me sessions - Toni Marie Photography
