Georgetown Newborn Photos

A new little fresh baby around the holidays the ultimate Christmas gift. Coming from a religious background, newborn babies around that time of year pull at my heartstrings in a special kind of way. This little one was born a few days ahead of schedule (Christmas Day), and actually interrupted the decorating of their Christmas tree!

Why can't your family photo look like the Kardashians? Why can't you look like that, too? What makes them so special, while you have to be stressed and go to a field outside at sunset in the cold? Did someone tell you that? Did someone say, "Well, you'll never be a model"? Did someone say, "Just go with the so-and-so photographer, they're more your style"? Did someone say, "That doesn't look good on your body type, you should get this instead"? Did someone say, "Don't be extra"? Did someone say, "Stop showing off"?
