When Baby A’s grandma called me, it was a blast from the past. I’d photographed her first grandson 8 years previously. Wow, how time flies! She’d just welcomed another grand daughter and was reaching out to get a newborn photography session scheduled for her.
Baby A’s mom knew she liked very natural, simple, and neutral looks, so we stuck to a mainly white and ivory color palette. Soft and beautiful. To round out her gallery of images, we added a small pop of color to her last look, styling her in a soft teal.
Baby A had the prettiest hair and chubby cheeks. She slept like a dream, and we captured lots of beautiful looks that I was excited to share with her family.

Baby A’s Story…
On sharing the news of pregnancy: “I’m pretty low key, so no big special announcement or gender reveal. I tried to tell our mothers on Mother’s Day, but we couldn’t wait for one and the other ended up being sick, so she was told later.”
Special events during pregnancy: “Not so much, it was a really easy pregnancy.”
Cravings: “I’ve always had food cravings, so I could never tell if it was normal or pregnancy craving. I did drink a lot of milk in my last month of pregnancy.”
On naming baby: “Her middle name is from my grandmother, who left this world too soon. I’ve had the name in my head for the longest time, even though I said I didn’t want children.”
The moment I first met her: “A wave of emotions, including shock, awe, fullness in my heart, and a tinge of fear.”
First thing I noticed: “Her full head of hair.”
Favorite features: “Her long hair and chubby cheeks. Basically, every adorable inch of her.”
Favorite moments: “Favorite moments are late night feedings when she and the house are peaceful and quiet. It feels like we are the only two people in the world. I never want to forget how small and comfortable she feels in my arms.”
Adorable things she does: “She tucks her hand/arm under her face when she’s sleeping. She makes adorable faces when making #2.”
