Can we just take a moment to GUSH over the joy, the beauty, the LOVE that you feel from this picture? So much happens when you have a new baby; your entire life changes in an instant. Time and time again I hear from moms, "I wasn't prepared for the amount of love I'd feel."
Some parents come into the studio and just watch us and stare at their baby during the entire session. I love my job as I get to witness so much joy. Mom's smile lit up the room.
...and then, there are the Dads....Babies bring out the best in them! I should write a blog and post photos of the Dads and their babies as Dad's smiles are not just big, but deep if that makes any sense. You can feel the deep sense of love and the pride and joy coming from within them as well. I have to say, Dads sometimes aren't too sold on the idea of newborn portraits, but I'm so grateful that they're open enough to have the experience; they never regret it.
This Dad even mentioned it during the session, how he was like 'really? we need newborn pictures?' We all laughed; He was getting a kick out of watching my assistant and I pose the baby and placing her into certain props. By the end of the session, he 'got it'. Portraits, especially family portraits and especially baby's portraits can bring on so much emotion when you look at them. Mom and Dad will have these moments to share from their session for a lifetime.
Time is fleeting; every day we get older, every day little teeny babies get bigger and stronger and grow more aware of their world. These photos will instantly bring them back to how they felt during these first few weeks of the baby's life, the time in our life, the time in each of their lives, what was going on with themselves, with family members, etc. Seeing a moment in time will not just bring back the memories but the emotions you were feeling during this time in your life, too.
I think the emotional part of photos may be a little more important to Moms than Dads, however, Dads always end up loving the photos, too. Dads may even complain a little about having to hang some frames or a canvas on the walls, (by the way, I can get you a guy to do that for you!) but once they're up on the walls in your house, these special moments that are now on your walls help to make your house a home. A home that you enjoy, a home that is filled with more love, more life and gets more colorful each day.

Where did the name Millie Dee come from? It's my 2 nicknames, my maiden name is Miller, so some friends call me Millie and some call me Dee instead of Denise, so I jammed them together and made Millie Dee...
