My daughter and owner of Breckon Couture, Ashlee, recently delivered her second child. I ran over to visit them a couple of days ago and my oldest daughter and owner of The Scissortail Shop, Samantha, was there when I arrived. She was changing baby Ava’s diaper and when she finished she scooped up my two year old grandson and headed off to Target to grab some formula. As she left, Ashlee broke down into tears at the idea of feeding Ava formula as opposed to breastfeeding. Ava wasn’t gaining much weight and Ashlee was in so much pain and struggling with breastfeeding. She felt defeated and selfish and like she was letting her daughter down.

I explained to her that it’s ok. It’s ok if she doesn’t breastfeed. It’s ok if she uses formula as long as Ava is being fed. As much as she wanted to breastfeed, the healthiest thing for Ava, and for Ashlee’s emotional health was to use formula….and it’s ok. It hurt my heart to have to tell my child that it is ok to do what is best for herself too.

I have found myself saying that quite a bit lately actually, to my children, to my friends and family. I even have to remind myself from time to time. So often we make ourselves crazy trying to do what is best for everyone else and we forget that we need to protect our own emotional health as well. The things that are expected of us from society, our families, our friends, our clients or anyone else become things that we expect of ourselves. So, we find ourselves sacrificing the things that we want and need. But we need to remember…it’s ok! It is ok to do what is best for ourselves.

Ava has been on formula for several days now and Ashlee has accepted the fact that it is what was best for both of them. I mean, how can she be her best if she gives more than she has?

A friend sent me a quote that said “stop complaining about the things you said yes to.” That spoke to me in so many ways, and it was exactly what I had been doing. I wrote it on a post it note and stuck it on my computer screen next to a post it note that says “I will not let anyone walk through my mind with dirty shoes.” I look at them daily as a reminder that I need to stay focused on my plan and not let others expectations dictate what is best for me. While I love helping others, I need to remember that it’s ok to put my priorities first.

So, if you struggle with this, take a deep breath and ask yourself if what is asked of you contributes to your emotional health or depletes it. Eventually, the guilt that you feel for saying no turns into peace, especially when it results in a less stressful, more productive day for yourself.

I had a client in the studio yesterday for a newborn session and she mentioned that she was a little nervous about how it would go. This isn’t the first parent with this concern. She said that her daughter had been fussy the night before and slept a lot before they got there. Later when she was feeding her, I could tell that she was concerned about whether we would get she shots she wanted or if we would run out of time. She offered to hand the baby back when she felt that she had just enough to not be upset. I told her to let baby eat until she was done. We were fine.

Mamas…it is fine. Your kids are fine. Your babies aren’t cranky and your toddlers aren’t bad and I am absolutely not judging your parenting when the session doesn’t go like everyone hopes or thinks it will. Newborns are newborns and they run the show. If they don’t want to sleep, well we are trained in ways to help them fall asleep and stay asleep. If they still don’t sleep, we can still get some amazing and sweet shots with their eyes open. Will we get every shot you want? Maybe not, but they can still be beautiful. We anticipate that newborns will need to eat and be soothed and rocked and changed. We are not going to cut your session short or omit any shots. Now, there are times when baby will only do certain poses and doesn’t want to sleep, but as long as they aren’t uncomfortable, we will get the shots based on what they want to do. But, I promise you, I am not mad because your baby won’t sleep.

Toddlers are toddlers and they are not meant to sit still. We can try very hard to get those posed shots you want, but if we can’t, I promise the candid shots are going to melt your heart. They are curious and full of energy and have very little attention span, so the window for getting the still shots is tight. But, if it takes a minute, I promise you, I’m not mad. I am not judging you because your toddler acts like a toddler.

I wanted to write about this topic specifically to remind everyone that capturing these images isn’t just about remembering what they look like at this age. It is about remembering who they were. It’s nice to have the posed portraits, but it is also nice to look at an image where your child is running, or smelling flowers or throwing a stick and remember their sweet personality and free spirit.

This image was from a session where mom was a nervous wreck about how her baby would do in the session.
