A month ago, I took maternity photos for Carie and Travis at the beach. This week, I got to meet and photograph their newborn baby girl.
Newborn photos work best when they’re done within the first 14 days after baby is born, as they are more likely to sleep longer, and more willing to be swaddled and gently posed than when they gain stronger motor functions. As you can see by those little toes sticking out in this photo, that’s not necessarily a guarantee that they still won’t break free from their wrappings. She’s a kicker.
But we managed to get her snoozing (and smiling!) a bit, too.
And you can just tell that mom and dad are so in love with their baby girl!
She was such a sweet little subject! Thanks so much to Carie and Travis for inviting me into their home to capture the kiddo who’s captured their hearts!
Know someone waiting on their own little bundle of joy to arrive? Have them drop me a line to schedule maternity and newborn photos!
