I loved entering into the peaceful home of this precious 15-week old baby girl and her mommy and daddy who have just been over the moon since her arrival. Sweet miss o was so enjoyable to photograph. Documenting a baby’s early days in her nursery with those who love her like crazy, well, it was a wonderful way to start the new year.


This new mommy is so calm, loving, and gentle with her new baby girl. Images of a mommy and her baby are so special.


This daddy warmed my heart. His adoring eyes and tender love for his little princess is so amazing.


Love these tiny hot pink socks.


Can you believe this little knit dress and lace tights were the mommy’s when she was a baby? I love family heirlooms and when things have special meaning. This is the dress miss o plans on wearing to her upcoming baptism. How beautiful!


In just the hour and half I was there, I felt the strong bond these new parents share with their baby. They adore her and it’s easy to see why!


Such tiny toes and feet.


One of my favorite moments was at the end of our time together when baby was so worn out and tired. Mommy scooped her up in her arms, wrapped her in a blanket, and rocked her to sleep. I was so happy to stay and photograph this behind-the-scenes event that is now so regular and routine in their home as a new family.
