A lot of parents worry that their baby won’t sleep well during their newborn session – but the truth is that babies work on their own schedules, so we always need breaks for feeding and settling baby! Sweet Miss Emma was no exception, and even though she spent more of her session awake than asleep, we were still able to create so many peaceful, content images of her cuddled up with her adoring parents. She just didn’t want to miss any of her party…it was really cute!
We were lucky enough to catch a few fleeting smiles as well, and I think my favorite shot of the day is this next one on the colorful carpet in her nursery (it’s a family gift, so it has special meaning). I know they say that newborn smiles are purely reflex at first, but this one sure looks like she’s having the time of her life!
J & M, thank you so much for inviting me to document your first memories as a brand new family! It was an honor to photograph these for you! xoxo
