The couple woke up 45 minutes later feeling refreshed and grateful.
Everyone knows that new parents are sleep deprived. No matter how many baby books tell you to sleep when the baby’s sleeping, the interrupted sleep pattern will do a number on anyone.
These two parents from Columbus, Georgia, are no exception. First-time parents Cindhi and Ross Davis were on two hours of sleep when they arrived at Simply Joyful Moments Photography with their newborn son, Theodore.
“It was the first time I’d been out of the house since the hospital. I was so excited I got to wash my hair and put on normal clothes,” Cindhi told TODAY Parents.
The former teacher, 37, was also looking forward to watching photographer Sarah Jankowski work her magic.
But Cindhi was just so tired. She and her husband also happened to spot a very comfortable and irresistible couch.
First Ross spotted the cozy perch and said he would sit down for a moment to rest. Then Cindhi joined him with the express intention of watching the photo shoot.
“I remember leaning into my husband and thinking, ‘I’m just going to sit here and watch the shoot.’ That was my last thought,” Cindhi told Today Parents.
Within moments, both parents were out like a light.
Jankowski’s assistant, Amanda Walker, captured a picture of the moment the Davises fell asleep, and the image went viral on Facebook with thousands of likes and shares.
“They just looked so adorably snuggled up and completely out,” Jankowski told TODAY Parents. “When they woke up 45 minutes later, they were like, ‘We needed that so much.’”
Jankowski noted that it isn’t uncommon for moms and dads to nod off in her studio.
“When parents come in, it’s usually when the baby is one or two weeks old,” she explained. “I’ve got a white noise (machine) going and I keep the room nice and warm. You put all those factors together and it’s a recipe for a nice comfy nap.”
