Amelia's Newborn Session

I just love newborn sessions, and even more so now that I have a special space in which to do them. For the past few years I have been driving around with a car full of props and equipment to my clients homes to do the session. I feel so excited to be able to utilize all my props and space and not be limited to just what I bring with me. My space is warm and soothing for little ones and their parents and I am really starting to feel at home when doing sessions in my studio.

Little miss Amelia, what a beautiful little girl! She was much older than my other newborn clients, 8 weeks old as opposed to the 5-10 day old babies, so we were planning on a lot of wrapped poses and awake shots. She looked so beautiful in purple!

She was wide awake and super happy at the beginning of the session which was a nice change and I got some great shots in the basket.

We then moved to the beanbag and after another bottle she was nice and sleepy and let me do a buch of poses I didn't think I could get with a baby her age. She rocked this part of the session and I even got some coos and sweet smiles from her, which of course gave me all the feels :) I just love babies and I am so blessed to have such sweet clients that trust me with their precious little ones.

This image was my favorite shot from the sessions. I just LOVE little details like eyelashes and the little dimples in her hands. Melts my heart.
