McKenzie's Here! ~ Announcement and my attempt at being a Newborn Photographer

Now that these have all been delivered I can share! 


I ordered mine from Snapfish. I LOVE Snapfish. I've been using them for years! I store all my pics there (if something ever happens to their site I will be heartbroken!) I used them for all our Wedding pics, books, calendars and now for babygirl!

At 12 days old I attempted to take my own pictures of my babygirl. I thought I could save money and do them myself.. Well after a few days passed I knew I had missed the window (ideally newborn photoshoots are best taken from 10-12 days old..That way you can get the cute sleepy baby poses..) but was really regretting not hiring someone. 
Here's some I took myself (not retouched or anything.. I was going to but never did). This day was fun.. pee, poop.. it was interesting! It also took forever! I remember saying to myself, how the hell do actual photographers do this?! It took all day! I had to keep taking breaks to feed her to get her to go back to sleep.. then she'd poop everywhere.. and those naked shots.. we didn't have such goodluck!






 It's a little blurry because she immediately started peeing! But I had to get a naked baby 
shot!

In the end I think they turned out pretty good! Of course I would do some retouching in Photoshop but I also ended up finding a really good photographer whose packages were really afforable!

I found her on a Tuesday and she came over on Wednesday! She was awesome too, since I only wanted to pay for 1 hour she stayed over and didn't charge me because we had quite the time with Kenz. She would cry every time I tried to lay her down. In the end though we got a few good shots. Also Bob came home on his lunch break right when the photographer got there and (not expecting him- my hair was up in a clip and i had yesterday's makeup on) we quickly threw on black shirts and got a couple shots.

Love her birth announcement. Don't beat yourself up, taking newborn pics is hard! When I tried to do Kendall's anytime I put her down she would cry. The photographer got some cute pics
