There’s nothing quite like photographing a baby in his or her first days of life. In fact, if you are expecting a baby, it’s best to schedule your newborn session while pregnant—like this smart new mommy did. That way, when you’re on the way to the hospital, all arrangements are set and you’ll be sure to have photos of your newborn baby in those early days. I couldn’t wait for this family to deliver because I just knew their little one would be the sweetest bundle. And was I ever right!
I love these early closeup images.
Little m’s room was decorated so nicely. From all the vintage Fisher-Price toys on the shelves to the antique dry sink that mommy and daddy converted, smartly, into a changing table to the quilt made by the proud grandmother, it was all so beautifully thought out and put together with love. What a special place for a special baby.
Look at her all swaddled up — she’s breathtaking.
And of course, we couldn’t let the session end without including the firstborn. While so gentle and kind with the new baby, he was beyond thrilled to steal the limelight for a few seconds. He couldn’t believe his ears when we invited him to jump on the bed!
