Disclaimer: I am NOT a newborn photographer. I suck at taking "newborn" pictures. Sure, I can get a snapshot or two of a baby while he/she is sleeping. But that's about it. I can't for the life of me pose newborns, I don't have the patience to sit there for half an hour while they get comfy and settled, and I sure enough don't have a stash of awesome props to use. I just don't enjoy trying to do a photoshoot with a newborn. I have only attempted it twice, and it was for friends of ours, and each time I felt like I should have insisted they go with a professional newborn photographer. I just can't photograph newborns and it makes me oh-so-admire all of you newborn photographers out there!

All of that being said, I try to take a few snapshots of our babies when they are a week or two old, just to document the newborn phase. And that is what I did here. I wanted to get a certain shot to print for Elijah's nursery, and once I felt I had a few options to choose from I stopped. Because I seriously just can't handle the pressure of feeling like I am doing a photoshoot for a newborn. Ridiculous? Absolutely. But it's how I roll. ;)

Here are some of the snap shots of my sweet baby Elijah! (I saved mine and Daniel's favorite for last.)








Happy Wednesday!
