This was an extra special newborn session–this lovely family won a photo session with me through a silent auction for the Lymphoma Society, hosted by my cousin. Her daughter has leukemia and they host a a very large and very successful auction every year. I’m proud to participate, and was really excited to hear that the winning bidder was interested in a newborn session. I’m a sucker for newborn photography.
I tend to like things simple with newborn photographs. I’m of the opinion that beautiful babies don’t need a lot of props to make a gorgeous photograph–they are most beautiful in their own skin. Too much “fluff” is distracting–when I look at a photo of a newborn, I want to see a beautiful baby, sweet and simple. Mom and Dad shared that sentiment with me which I was delighted to hear.
I love this one–you can already feel the connection between a mama and her baby girl!
Baby’s Great-Grandmother made this blanket for her–a tradition in the family. I love that we got one of her smiling with it!
Love these classic shots
One of my new FAVORITE newborn photos.
Her nursery was amazing!
And the proud new parents–so much joy in their faces!
