This little one was so beautiful and alert, and she was only 6 days old for her portraits. For me, about a week old seems to be the perfect age for newborn session. They have had time to settle in (parents and baby), and the baby still has those fresh newborn details that disappear all too quickly. Miss S is the first child for this family, other than their beloved labrador who was very curious about what I was doing with her baby! She didn’t want to sleep for her newborn pictures at first but she was so wide-eyed and content to be awake. I just love her cute faces! This was an in-home session and her parents followed my tips I send out to help the session go smoothly, so she eventually drifted off to sleep. I send out these tips before a session and they include suggestions such as having the room really warm, keeping the baby awake beforehand, and feeding on demand. These steps can make all the difference in the world in having a happy, cooperative baby. As we know, newborns make the rules! I am glad we were able to get a variety of awake and sleepy shots. How gorgeous is her hair? Her nursery is porcelain blue, cream and tan so we used a lot of those colors for her session. Most people don’t think of putting a baby girl in blue, but it is so soft and I love how feminine and delicate she looks. She is just perfect and I hope mom and dad love the images!
I posted another favorite HERE on my Google page. She is wearing a headband from one of my favorite new vendors!
