teeny tiny newborn photoshoot

Looking back at these photos of our ten-days-new baby girl had me in tears. I can't believe how much Harper has grown and I just want to go back and relive those newborn days again so I can truly appreciate how tiny she was!

We had only been out of hospital a few days when Jem came over to our house to take these photos and I remember waking up and being so annoyed with myself for not booking in to get my hair and makeup done. I was exhausted after being up in the middle of the night to feed Harper (although I really can not complain, she was only ten days old and was already sleeping in 4 hour blocks) and could not think of anything worse than having photos of me taken in the tired state I was in. Lucky I pulled myself together and managed to pop on a bit of makeup as I'm so happy we have these beautiful memories to look back on.

I don't even notice the bags under my eyes or my puffy post-birth face anymore - all I can see is a blissed out mama who loves her family more than anything in this world.
