A PHOTOGRAPHER has shared a hilarious snap of two new parents who had dozed off while visiting her studio to have their newborn photographed.
Sarah Jankowski, from Georgia, owner of Simply Joyful Moments Photography and a mum-of-four, said she was far from surprised when the mum and dad took the opportunity to nap.
Speaking to Kidspot, she explained: "Mum and Dad were telling me how their baby was keeping them up a lot and how tired they were.
"This was their first child, so it was all new to them."
Sarah told them to just sit back and relax, enjoy watching their baby and that she would take care of the rest… so that's exactly what they did.
One minute they were chillaxing, the next they were out for the count.
Sarah says that the grateful parents woke up about 45 minutes later and had no idea they had fallen asleep but were "so happy" they got to nap.
She added that while it was "definitely not the first time that parents have fallen asleep at my studio, it's usually just the Dad and not both of them curled and snuggled up together. It really was the most adorable thing!"
When Sarah posted the images on her Facebook page, fellow parents were left in hysterics over the “super relatable” snap.
