Baby Photography in Buffalo, NY|Newborn advice for new parents

July 15, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

When my first baby was born I had no clue what to expect.  I didn't know about the fourth trimester, I didn't have a clue why my body wouldn't just snap back, and I freaked every time he would cry.  I cried, a lot.  I suffered from postpartum depression (which no one wanted to talk to me about), and I was so afraid I was doing everything wrong.  The first three months he was alive were the most stressful three months I had ever lived through.  

When I photograph these tiny new lives, it is usually for brand new parents.  I am taken back to the birth of my son every time.  I wish I could hug these new moms and dads without seeming weird and tell them that it will be okay.  I look into their tired eyes and worried faces and I see what I went through all over again.  I want to say "If you're worried you're not doing it right, then you ARE doing it right".  Babies cry for a reason when they're newborns.  They are hungry, they need a change, they are tired, or their little tummies hurt.  Babies are new to this life stuff.  They've only been out of utero for a few days and their digestive track is still getting used to it all.  There are noises and lights and touch that they are just starting to figure out.  It is all scary, some of it hurts, and they are only happy when their parent holds them and walks with them and talks to them.

There is nothing like the bond between a parent and child.  

I am always taken aback by the bond I see in families.  When two become three and four and five, there is always a new bond and new dynamic.  You could have a hundred new babies in your family and each bond will be different and just as strong as the last.  A prime example of two parents doing all they can for their princess are the Cobello's.  I could tell right away that these two would move mountains for their precious new life.  Momma C. had that fierce look behind her eyes when she looked at her angel and daddy C. had such tenderness when he would hold both of his girls.  I absolutely love this sweet family.

Without further ado....  Introducing Miss Gabriella!!
