What a sleepy bundle of joy! Stella Marie was born on May 26 to one of my coworkers (at my real job), and we had the awesome opportunity to hang out with their family and take pictures of their newest little girl. She fell asleep right near the beginning of the session and thankfully stayed asleep throughout a few different poses. Good lighting and a sleepy baby always makes for a good newborn session! Just add a few pink accessories, and there you have it! Stella is a beautiful little girl – the previews of these pictures on my camera during the photo shoot brought her grandmother to tears. Hopefully you enjoy them too!
What a blessing to be able to take pictures of this tiny bundle of joy for our first photo session of the year! When Cora and Will told us back in November that they wanted us to photograph their baby once she was born, we were so excited. It was a pleasure to meet little Eleanor, and we tried our best to capture her beauty in these images. I do have to admit that newborn sessions are some of my favorite, especially if the baby is sleeping (which sometimes happens and other times doesn’t). Will & Cora were so accommodating, and it was great getting to know them better during the session too!
P.S. – my favorite part of the entire shoot can be seen in her “portrait” below (the fifth photo down); you can see my reflection and her mother’s reflection in Eleanor’s big round eyes. So awesome!
