"Is it hard to be around the newborns?"

So the 3rd post into this blog is a good time to share with you what I do.  I'm a professional photographer, and one area I specialize in is newborn art photography.  The kind where you prop them up on soft pretty blankets, and snuggle them with lots of layers in fun baskets and buckets...adorning them with cute props to make it "just perfect".  I LOVE newborn art photography... but it's a special kind of photography that requires a lot of passion, dedication and hard work to make these sessions a success.

I'm often asked by friends and clients alike, "is it hard to be around the newborns".  Obviously these people that ask this know that I suffer from IF.  I don't just open with that with my newborn clients, but often they ask during a session if I have children.  I'm not shy... and although I don't share the nitty gritty details, I no longer struggle with telling people, I suffer from IF.

But the question still is there... is it hard?  Sure.  If I focus on it and think about it constantly, yes, it's hard.  But I find a lot of peace and joy in photographing newborns.  So although it's hard... I love what I do, and will continue with it no matter my IF journey.  Not going to lie... I hope one day I'm photographing my own newborn ☺.
