Newborn Portraits in Midlothian VA by Sarah Kane Photography

Meet baby Lucy who arrived on November 16, 2014 at 11:26 pm! Weighing in at a whopping 10lbs 2oz!! If you think that is big for a newborn would you believe that I weighed 11 lbs 1 oz when I was born? My poor mother will confirm this fact! I was very concerned when I was pregnant with my first child and repeatedly harassed the doctor if she could tell how big the baby was getting. I thought for your I was going to deliver a 12 lb turkey. Thankfully Brennan, at 2 weeks early, was only 7lbs 5.3oz. My sister was the one with the big babies. Big babies are great because they don't seem as fragile! Oh and of course there is nothing cuter than all of those baby rolls!! Just look at how adorable Lucy is! I just want to snuggle her up like a wrinkly teddy bear! All those extra rolls came in handy during posing too. Especially the cheeks in hand pose! Lucy arrived at the studio for her newborn portraits and was a perfect angle from start to finish!! She slept most of the time just waking up when she needed a snack and then right back to bed!

Time goes by so fast and newborns change from day to day. You have a very short window to absorb as much of them as you can. I am so thankful that I am able to capture for parents those fleeting moments before they are gone forever as I know all too well from experience. Welcome baby Lucy! I wish you all the love and happiness in the world!!

Too Little Feet Too Little Time

Too little feet, ten little toes, leave their impression today.

Soon they will wear two little shoes and be running and jumping at play.

Two little feet, too little time, before they are walking to school,

kicking a rock, or skipping a rope, wading a puddle or jumping in pools.

Two little feet, one little child, will soon go their own way,

but footprints in my mind recall

they stood here yesterday.
