Baby M's Newborn Session
"Mothers hold their children's hands for a short while, but their hearts forever." - unknown
My second newborn session with this little cutie. I had the privilege to do her mother's maternity session just a few short weeks before Baby M made her grand entrance into the world. I was so honored that the family wanted me to do her newborn photos.
For this session, we just did Baby M. She was very happy sleeping and relaxing in her little box. Mommy and Daddy had fun with changing her outfits and using my props. I love when the parent's are just as excited as I am. This gave me an extra opportunity to try my props and practice.
My style for newborn is simple and elegant. The subject is the baby and I do not want to take away from that. My props are simple, but show style and are fun.
Baby M also didn't want to be swaddled, she managed to get her little arms out of each wrap. But she was happy and relaxed once she was able to get those little hands near her face. She was a very photogenic baby. She smiled each time she heard my lens shutter.
I cannot wait to photograph this family again!
