10 Week Old Photo Shoot

Being a new mom has been the most difficult, yet most rewarding thing I’ve ever endured. For the first two months after my son was born, I struggled with severe sleep deprivation, a healing body, newborn jaundice, breastfeeding, a family emergency, homesickness, and feeling like I was doing everything utterly wrong. I underestimated just how hard being a new parent was, and I don’t think anything could have prepared me — I just had to experience it to understand it. There were days I broke down and cried because I was so overwhelmed and felt I would never be myself again.

After two months, I started to notice a shift. I was still exhausted, but I had adapted to the sleep schedule. Everything regarding the baby began to feel like second nature…

…and I finally had the mental energy to do a photo shoot with my son! I really wish I had thought of it when he was a newborn, but my brain had been barely functioning. The only thing I could focus on for a while was taking care of the baby.

Better late than never!

The advantage to a 10 week old over a newborn?
He’s so alert and expressive now, it is so much fun!
