in newborns

This lovely, smiley little girl graced my lens earlier this week. Isn’t she just darling?

You may recognize her super-sweet parents from their recent maternity session. And that’s her big sister, Hailey, the black lab.

I really enjoy incorporating items in the session that are personal to the family, and they thought to include one of dad’s head wraps that he used to wear when he had long dreads. Love it.
