Rachel shares her view on the importance of getting in more images and just how precious this time is, fleeing, yet beautiful. Thank you Rachel ❤️ How adorable is her sweet Theo?! At almost 4 months old, he had a warm smile that is just brings sunshine to any day!
I think getting these photos done was so important for myself and for my little guy. We’ll be able to look back on this time when he was so tiny and see our relationship. I find as a new mom, things are so busy... you’re constantly wondering if you’re doing the right thing, you’re busy googling things, stressing about their sleeping, eating, etc. There’s not much time to just sit back and enjoy the moments. This was one of those moments. We had the opportunity to do this together and get photos that we will cherish forever.
My best piece of advice for new mothers would be to try and enjoy all these moments. Take pictures, videos, write in a journal... whatever it takes to help you remember these moments later for they will be gone too fast!
