I had the joy of photographing a beautiful spring baby girl the other day. At only 7 days old, she was so happy to snuggle, sleep, and eat. My kind of girl! Thanks B family for inviting me into your home during these special early days. It was an honor to be one of the first meet her and welcome her into this world.

This first image is one of my very favorites. I can’t stop looking at it. She’s so beautiful and peaceful. And, oh how I love that baby skin. Those cute cheeks resting on her tiny hands while all bundled in a soft pink blanket. Swoon.


And I love those tiny fingers and toes. Does it get much sweeter than this?


Some beautiful black and white portraits. I love that she was both awake and asleep — we got some great variety in our shots.


And I love mommy and daddy kissing here with their newest addition in their arms. What a loving family. You’re off to a fantastic start as a unit of three!


Thanks again for a lovely morning. It was a perfect start to the weekend.
