Sometimes, when I start a blog post, and the blinky cursor is there with the blank page, I feel such anxiety. Because, as a newborn photographer and a parent, I see it. I know how loved this little person is. I know how it feels to finally bring your little person earthside and then you just stare at them in disbelief that they are yours and the people wherever you birthed them are going to just leave this baby with you and trust you with them. And the pure, pure joy – joy over every little thing about them, joy that they are yours. It’s beyond joy to like, a light year beyond elated. And, I want to do that justice.
When I look at these photos of this perfect baby boy, this hoped-for child, I can only think of this song, that always makes a sob catch in my throat, by John Lennon, written for his own son:
Have no fear,
The monsters gone,
He’s on the run and your daddy’s here,Beautiful,
Beautiful Boy,Before you go to sleep,
Say a little prayer,
Every day in every way,
It’s getting better and better,Beautiful,
Out on the ocean sailing away,
I can hardly wait,
To see you to come of age,
But I guess we’ll both,
Just have to be patient,
Yes it’s a long way to go,
But in the meantime,
Before you cross the street,
Take my hand,
Life is just what happens to you,
While your busy making other plans,
I had to add something funny to this sentimental and sweet post. This baby did NOT want to be my spokesmodel.
