Editing these images from this sweet session of one year photographs has really made me think about the babies that have been born during the pandemic. They have been born into a world that has irrevocably changed. These are the babies that never knew “before”.
Regardless of what happens on the other side of this, everything is shifting. The world these babies will inhabit is a brand new one.
These babies born over the past year have also missed out on SO much. A lot of them have never been held by anyone except their parents. Most of them haven’t met their grandparents, aunts, uncles or cousins except through a computer screen. Many of them didn’t have newborn portrait sessions.
If your pandemic baby missed out on newborn portraits, I want to tell you that it’s not too late. Have photographs made NOW at whatever age they’re at. Whether they’re a few months or even a year old, every stage during their first year is an adorable one.
