newborn baby portrait…

I had the pleasure taking newborn baby portraits for a past wedding client. Their newborn daughter is my youngest client to date – 15 days old. Bright-eyed at the beginning of the session. Took a break for some cozy time with Mom and fell asleep. She was absolutely precious too… as most babies are! Here’s a couple pics…

This was actually my first newborn shoot and I look forward to more! They don’t stay this size for very long! Contact me if you or someone you know is expecting or have recently given birth to a beautiful baby. This is a wonderful way to capture them at this beginning stage of life…

PS – these were taken in the studio. If you’ve been following me on Facebook – you may have heard some exciting news. More on that coming soon to the site!
