Channing’s Lifestyle Newborn Session made me think of my own experience as a mom.

I remember laying eyes on the baby that made me a mama for the first time like it was yesterday.

All your children are loved and a gift from God but there is just something about your first that will always hold a special place in your heart.

From hearing a babies heartbeat that is growing inside YOU and then feeling tiny little flutters turn into full blown karate kicks virtually over night, to watching your belly contort itself in ways you didn’t even know were possible as baby takes up the hobby of gymnastics inside your body… love grows.

Love grows between a husband and a wife as they find out they are expecting, love grows for the tiny human responsible for the mama’s changing body, and then before you know it a love grows inside you that you didn’t even know existed when you hold your baby in your arms for the very first time.

Becoming a mom for the first time is a feeling I never want to forget.

What I cherish most about spending time with families and photographing their newborn (aside from snuggling their baby of course) is getting a front row seat to the bond that is formed between a parent and their baby.

Mikayla and Cody were so smitten with their little girl. Even with only 9 days of parenting experience under their belt, they already operated as a team to make sure Channing had her every need met.

What I learned from our short time together is that when Cody isn’t working as a Garland Firefighter he is a professional dirty diaper changer, spit-up catcher, and Channing gift buyer.

And not only does Mikayla make mommin look easy but stylish too! (Gimme dat diaper bag & car seat!) Mikayla is a professional Channing styler & Elvie wearing super mom.

Oh Channing, how very loved you are. Mikayla and Cody, thank you for the privilege of capturing your love grow by two tiny hands and feet. I sincerely hope you cherish these images for a lifetime, I know Channing will 🙂
