Baby Goats in Delightful Photo Session Just Like Newborn Babies
Newborn baby photos are always adorable, newborn puppy photos are heart-melting, and well, folks, apparently newborn goat photos are just on another level, because I’m now making the highest-pitched squeals I’ve ever heard in response to these cuties
Photographer Sherry Pratt of Moments Whispered snapped a series of adorable portraits featuring these beloved baby goats. Pratt styled the shoot like she was photographing newborn human babies and adorned the kids with tiny crocheted blankets and flower crowns.
Sherry Pratt, photographer at Moments Whispered, usually focuses on newborn human photography, but when her son started dating the daughter of those who run the Spenker Family Farm in Lodi, CA, she was introduced to the farm’s growing goat population. “Sarah, from the farm, invited me to come and take a few pics and get some cuddles,” Sherry told POPSUGAR. “In my mind, a newborn is a newborn and a goat is no different! So I went on down, and, well, I was right, they sleep and are shooshed and cuddled just like a newborn baby. So stinking precious!!”
She even placed a couple of sleepy goats in a pair of boots! “This was such a fun day! My BFF and I went down to Lodi to visit the Spenker Family Farm,” – Pratt wrote on her Blog. “Why you may ask? Well. The baby goat season has begun and all the cute little kids are jumping and kicking up their heals. So, we grabbed our cameras and gear and off we went to cuddle a bunch of babies.” Check out our gallery below to see more snuggly baby goats and visit Pratt’s Instagram Page
Not only did Sherry get a full day of snuggling with the newborns, but several more baby goats were born while she was there. “I got to snuggle and cuddle brand new baby goats just hours old! I can’t wait to go back!” she said. “These little new ones are bouncing and jumping within hours of birth! I took a few pics of a survivor of triplets born 13 days early. She was amazing! A bundle of twitches, kicks, jumps, and joy!”
Pratt’s portfolio primarily features human subjects, but when she had the opportunity to visit a farm and snuggle with hours-old baby goats, she leaped at the chance. Her instincts were right; the little kids slept and liked to be cuddled just like a newborn child. But, Pratt still had to be quick while capturing her portraits. “Each image is a quick moment in time,” she wrote on Instagram. “They don’t stay still unless they are asleep.”
