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!
Last month, I had the awesome opportunity to do my first maternity photo shoot with Heather and Chris Coy. You can see the images from that blog post here. The great thing about maternity sessions is that shortly afterwards, new life is welcomed into the world, and sometimes I have the joy of taking pictures of the baby. That was the case with Joshua Stephen, who was only 12 days old when we took these pictures. What an adorable little guy! Chris and Heather both have plenty of aspirations for their son – one of the most notable is Chris’ desire for another baseball player in the family tree. Heather was happy getting him dressed up in a tie – have to prepare him for the corporate world in case the baseball thing doesn’t work out, right? We enjoyed every moment of both photo sessions with the Coys and can’t wait to get to know Joshua as he grows up!
