I Wish You Could See My Smile

So I just did something I have been yearning to do for years now! I got back from a friends house a few minutes ago after delivering my first portraits! One of my new girl friends had a baby this last weekend and on Saturday I went over to do my very first newborn shoot. It was sooooo much harder than I thought it would be. And I learned some tough lessons. But after six hours today (that's crazy I know, but they were my FIRST pictures) I got them all edited just the way I wanted them.

My friend was so gracious. I hope she liked them as much as I liked giving them to her!!! It is funny this feeling. I feel like I just swam in an Olympic event and got a gold medal! It has been so much work. And I have struggled with a ton of self doubt. But now this cheesy grin on my face says it all. I did something I have wanted to do for a long time and I am proud! Hope you enjoy the pictures of Beautiful Baby "B"!
