in newborns

Um, hello gorgeous people who showed up on my studio doorstep ready for their newborn session! Such a darling family and super nice on top of it! It was a complete joy to document their first family pictures together, as parents to their sweet little boy who was so good for this first photo shoot.

One of my favorite pictures is of a baby’s hand in mom’s hand — a baby’s hand is super cute photographed alone, but you can see how small it is when photographed with mom to hold it.

I’ll never stop swooning over a newborn baby gazing directly into my camera.

Okay, stop it! That smile!!

One of my favorite little poses – perfect for a tiny knitted hat.

I’m still waiting for someone to invent an adult-size fur-lined basket like this because, I mean, look at that face… He looks pretty blissed-out.

What a lucky little boy — he found such a loving family to grow up in.

Their rings were so beautiful, I just had to sneak them in somehow. These little toes make a fitting closing shot.
