Remember that stretch last month where it seemed like all I had on my blog was maternity session after maternity session? Well now get ready for lots of sweet babies coming to the blog! :0) Ali and Andrew welcomed their sweet girl Leoni last week and you can tell they are head over heels in love with her! Ali must have seen it in my eyes, because one of the first things that she said to me when I walked in was “do you want to hold her??” :0) you don’t have to ask me twice! I usually try to wait until the end of the session to ask to hold the baby, only because once they’re in my arms I have a hard time putting them down and picking up the camera :0) Leoni was a perfect angel and slept well enough that even though we would move her around a lot, she’d just settle back in and close her eyes. Usually babies make me work a bit harder to get the shot, but Leoni was quite accommodating :0) Ali, thanks for sharing her with me for the afternoon, and enjoy every moment with your baby girl! poor puppy was running in circles around the bed, not understand why he was being left out of the picture process.. so when he was finally allowed up on the bed he found a comfy spot and settled down before they could rethink their decision ;0)i’m convinced this shot with the rings tickles their toes, so most babies kick and wiggle until the rings fall off, but miss Leoni humored me and held still for a few seconds for me to grab this shot! this is my signature ‘baby love’ picture, and this is definitely one of my favorite ones I’ve ever gotten! love it! :0)
Ali had found the cutest little props on etsy for the session! I would definitely encourage parents to check it out and order a few things a couple months before your due! i dont know what she was dreaming about, but whatever it was it made her happy! :0)tiniest tutu EVER! i couldn’t believe how much she was grinning in her sleep! too cute! someone had give this to Ali as a headband for the baby, but it was just a liiiiiittle too bit to use as a headband.. so we improvised :0)LOVE these next two :0)Happy Friday!
She is so, so, so cute! Those pictures are great and you are going to cherish those so much as she gets older. I cannot wait to see her in person! xoxo kelk
Beautiful! It reminds me of the Anne Geddes photos. The photos would make a great calendar/Xmas gift. Treasures forever.
Ali – I love these pictures, she is too cute!!! What a happy little family. :)
Love them! Thanks! :)
Can I please tell you how much I love your newborn photography! Honestly, if I’m ever privileged enough to have another baby, I would love for you to come to Charlotte, NC! It’s amazing the sweet little details you capture with each shot…And those little newborn wrinkles on the bottom of her feet…Are you kidding me,they’re sweetest things ever!!!
