I first met Anaira’s family during their beautiful autumn maternity session, so I was excited as I awaited her arrival in early November.
She arrived a couple days past her due date, and after careful planning, we scheduled her newborn photo session on her 13th day. This also happened to be her momma’s birthday!
Her momma loves colorful and flowery looks, but also creamy neutrals, so we planned for both! We added in tons of flowers, greenery, and even did a rainbow look. She slept the whole session, giving us lots of cute expressions, and even opened her eyes for a shot or two. Couldn’t have been more perfect!
Baby’s name: Anaira
Due Date: 11/2/19
Birth Time: 6:36 AM
Weight: 6 lb 4 oz.
Length: 20 in.
How we shared the news of Anaira: “I found it on a Saturday morning and immediately shared it with my husband. It was an exciting moment. Then I told some of my immediate family and close friends via video call and recorded their expressions.”
Pregnancy: “We had a gender reveal party and that was awesome. We broke a color filled baseball among close friends and family and that was a blast. During the 29th week, we went for a 5D ultrasound to see the baby and that was amazing. I had cravings for desserts. During my 2nd trimester we traveled a lot and went to several national parks and did a lot of hiking. We went to the hottest place on earth (death valley national park) in the summer and did stargazing in the night.”
Anaira’s name: “Anaira means unique, precious.”
The moment we first met Anaira: “It was surreal. She was such an amazing little thing and it was the most exciting moment ever. I couldn’t take my eyes off her and I was amazed at how she looked. When I held her, I felt like jumping with joy. There was so much else, which could not be explained.”
The first thing we noticed: “Her big and beautiful eyes and a lot of gorgeous hair.”
Favorite features: “All of my baby.”
Favorite moments: “Feeding her keeping her in my arms, rocking her to sleep, holding her close to my heart and talking non-sense with her, singing for her, and playing with her when changing her diaper, clothes, and also giving her tummy time.”
Adorable things she does: “The way she smacks and licks her lips when she’s hungry and the cute little noises she makes when feeding and playing.”
