I mean, had to. As mommy-to-be and I planned this newborn session, she wanted to use an owl hat she'd fallen in love with. We built the nest from scratch and concocted a more-elaborate-than-usual backdrop for new baby boy.
Then I met new baby boy. And he taught me what it meant to love arms.
When I say "love arms," I mean he didn't want to be put down. Like. Ever.
Segway: Yes, that is a wee baby bowtie he's wearing whilst in grandmother's arms. And yes, we did successfully nab pics with him wearing it. Here's one now...
So here's me, and this cute photo setup, and momma clutching a perfect hat, and a vision of what could be. And...the baby who won't let us put him down.
But guess what? Patience pays off. And this is what it looked like that day...
