Celebrating Life & Love with Baby Aleya

Here are some photos captured of the little and tiny Baby Aleya just a month of her being born into this world. I used more of a natural lighting technique to get warm and natural skin tones on the photos. These newborn photos were photographed at Shalin & Azidi’s beautiful home in Mutiara Damansara. I guess I have to give google a big hug for channeling them to me as Aleya is such a doll!

A beautiful moment with Daddy

A baby’s one thing, the whole world adores,
And the best part of all, this one is yours! ~ Author unknown ~

Aleya, looking comfortable in mummy’s arms

No earthly joys could bring more pleasure,
Than a little child to love and treasure ~ Author unknown ~

Just the two of us

Aleya looks beautiful even when she is crying

Family portraiture with mum Shalin and Dad Azidi

Here’s a poem all mothers can relate to and I’m sure Shalin would agree with me…

Before I was a Mom…
I made and ate hot meals.
I had unstained clothing.
I had quiet conversations on the phone.

Before I was Mom…
I had never been puked on,
Pooped on,
Spat on,
Chewed on,
Peed on,
Or pinched by tiny fingers.

Before I was a Mom…
I had complete control of my mind,
My thoughts.
My body,
And my time.
I slept all night.

Before I was a Mom…
I never held down a screaming child,
So that doctors could do tests,
Or give shots.
I never looked into teary eyes and cried.

I never got gloriously happy over a simple grin.
I never sat up late hours at night
Watching a baby sleep.

Before I was a Mom…
I never held a sleeping baby just because.
I didn’t want to put it down.
I never felt my heart break into a million pieces.
When I couldn’t stop the hurt.
I never knew that I could love someone so much.
I never knew I would love being a Mom.

Before I was a Mom…
I didn’t know the feeling of having my heart outside my body.
I didn’t know how special it could feel to feed a hungry baby.
I didn’t know that bond between a mother and her child.
I didn’t know that something so small
Could make me feel so important.

Before I was a Mom…
I had never risen in the middle of the night.
Every 10 minutes to make sure all was alright.
I had never known the warmth,
The joy,
The love,
The heartache,
The wonderment,
Or the satisfaction of being a Mom.
