Oh my goodness! This sweet girl was such a dream! She came into this world a little early but couldn't be healthier! I can only hope that when my baby comes (I'm due October!) that she is as good of a sleeper as this little nugget. Usually, my sessions are super quiet and I use a shusher as one of my tools to keep baby asleep. This session was the total opposite and I completely went with it because noise didn't seem to bother her AT ALL. I'm talking dog barking, baby brother yelling, doorbell ringing, people chatting, leaf blowing-you name it.
For this session, mom wanted neutrals and pinks and to include a tutu and crown. Being the nature lover that I am I, of course, had to incorporate something earthy. I picked up some baby's breath, ferns and little pink roses from a local flower shop on my way to the session. Silly me, for some reason, I left the flowers in my van-not a good idea. Note to self, Florida is super HOT right now. Too hot to leave flowers inside of vehicles anymore. My poor pink flowers looked so sad when it was time for me to use them. I was going to just use the ferns and baby's breath but mom said I could help myself to any of the floral arrangements people had sent her. I gladly accepted and I'm glad I did because it added such a wonderful little pop of color.
And those pearls? Those are the mom's. I LOVE it when clients want to incorporate beautiful keepsakes such as meaningful jewelry. Those pearls added such a gorgeous, classy vibe to the images. Side note-it's not easy getting babies to grip things when you want them to!
Newborn sessions are such a beautiful time to capture. Our little ones change ridiculously fast and within a matter of days. They lose their flaky skin and even their faces start to change. You don't want to miss out on capturing such a precious time in your little one's life. I always recommend reserving a date for when the baby is due if you are able to.
