From a photographers standpoint you want to take newborn photos sometime in the first 11 days of their life, before they start getting any baby acne, dry skin or become too alert and it gets hard to do those sleepy pictures. Well the first 11 days of Dylan’s life were kind of chaotic and full with us being sick and the whole remodel/move thing. I kept trying to pick a date and something would come up and we would postpone it, again and again and again. Finally, after we actually moved, I was determined to get these pictures done before Dylan was a month old. So on his 3 week birthday our wonderful photographer came over to our house about 10 minutes before the flooring guy arrived to start laying our hardwood floors. They both worked around each other and got the job done, so now we have some beautiful pictures of our newest boy and a few with big brother too!
And since the flooring was not installed and the entire house was concrete we couldn’t move our furniture in, except in two of the bedrooms where we had carpet. So the only place we could all sit together for a picture was on the blow up mattress we were sleeping on until the flooring was finished in the master.
