Today we had Charlotte’s newborn photos. As I had mentioned in a previous post, we hired Pics by Nic and Nicole, the photographer, was great. Totally patient despite the fact that we were at least 10 minutes late and showed up with a cranky baby who needed to be nursed immediately. So, we spent the first two to three hours nursing on and off. In the meantime, Charlotte managed to poop through a towel onto my lap, pee all over at least three props, and – the kicker – pee MY pants. Yes, I was holding her naked to get a cute naked baby pic, and she unloaded all over my lap. I’ve never had someone else wet my underwear, but let me tell you, not that awesome.
Once she was done defecating everywhere, I gave her one more boob and she finally fell asleep. Then, we moved quickly and took as many pics as possible. And oh was she cute.
Here are some “behind the scenes” photos I took while the photographer was hard at work. Note that the adorable hats were made by Lisa of Kiki & Bee… So cute, right?!
