Little Miss Abigail was 7 days old when she came into the studio for her newborn session.
I loved everything about this session…
One thing I love the most about newborn sessions is the peacefulness from the start. While very warm for the parents, she slept in such a sweet slumber I felt guilty moving her. I found myself keeping her in position longer than usual because she was so content through each pose, I got smile after smile. That day ended up being my birthday, but happened to be the only day I would be able to schedule them until an entire week later. I had such a good feeling going into the day (birthday excitement maybe?), I knew it would be amazing. Abigail slept wonderfully, posed wonderfully, and just looked like a pure angel, especially with those smiles. It just warmed my heart through each one. As with every session, I pose babies with the families last. I love this part of the session. A lot of times parents feel awkward posing, but through that awkwardness I promise beautiful, timeless portraits. I get smiles, laughs and jokes. I MAY have joked about getting a baby poo viral shot for dad…because how awesome are those?? 😉
But more importantly I get to see them as a family, and for this particular session, a family for the first time. It’s why I love this job. I remember what it was like, how it felt to be a family for the first time. This was definitely a great way to start the new year, and the first newborn of the year. She’s set the bar high, but if it’s any indication of how this year will be, I can’t wait for the rest. Here are just a few images from their day.
If this session warms your heart, and you love it as much as I do, please share with your friends, feel free to comment, and pin!
