{Eleanor} Pretty in Pink & Purple Newborn Photography Ann Arbor

Eleanor’s mom and dad found me online about a week before she was born while they were searching for newborn photographers.  I was able to squeeze her in, so we set up the session, planned looks and ideas, and waited until she arrived.

On her session day, I had lots of cute looks set up and ready to go…lots of pinks and purples, and a splash of aqua. Eleanor’s mom wanted flowers incorporated into the session, so we even took her outside into my newborn garden for some outdoor newborn photos! It was a beautiful day, and the perfect time of year to take advantage of my pink azaleas and fragrant purple lilacs.

She slept like a dream for me, and didn’t make a peep until the very end of the session.  And that’ll just be a story her mom and dad can tell her one day.  Ha ha!

Eleanor’s Story…

On sharing the news of Eleanor’s arrival: “Since I was living in Chicago, I had to facetime my family to let them know. They were all so happy but surprised!”

Pregnancy cravings: “I ate a lot of ice cream and watermelon! Until I found out that I had gestational diabetes and had to cut out the sugar and carbs.”

Eleanor’s name: “Eleanor was my grandmother’s name and Elly’s was a special place my friends and I went to in Chicago. Rose is my other grandmother’s middle name, along with several other family members.”

The moment I first met her: “It was completely surreal. After 2 1/2 hours of pushing, I finally could feel her head crowning and so I gave it another push and they put her right on me. We stayed skin to skin for almost 5 hours – I wouldn’t let anyone else hold her, even daddy!”

First thing I noticed: “Her dark blue/grey eyes were wide open and she had a head full of dark hair.”

Describe your favorite features of your baby, the ones you’ll never want to forget.

Favorite features” “Her lips are just like mine – a cupid’s wing. She also has an adorable button nose. She’s perfect!”

Favorite moments: “I love wrapping her up in a swaddle and holding her or skin to skin contact. I just love holding her.”

Describe any of the little personality traits or adorable things your baby does.

Personality and cute things she does: “She squirms a lot but it takes a lot to really make her cry (until it’s late at night and she needs to be asleep :). She constantly can sneak her hands out from the swaddle so she can suck on her fingers.”

“She is the best gift we have ever been given. She is truly a miracle!”
