Newborn Photography at your NH Home

Everyone is happier, cozier, and more relaxed with Newborn Photography at your NH Home. Everyone, except maybe the cat. 😳 I’m not sure exactly how this cat thought it was going to perch itself in this slanted skylight, but they were not interested in the small tiny human its owners had brought home to get in the way. 😂 This sweet little girl spent half her time cozy and asleep and then woke up for
