Baby A’s mom found me during her search for newborn photographers in Michigan. She enjoyed looking through my galleries, so she reached out prior to her little one’s birth.
We had a great conversation, and talked a lot about styling for the session. Baby A’s nursery is decorated in a “springtime in Paris theme”, so we planned for springtime colors, lots of pretty pink tones, and a mini Eiffel Tower.
Baby A arrived right on her due date, and we planned her session for her 11th day. She slept through most of the session, barely making a peep; we only stopped mid-way through for one quick meal. After eating, she fell right back asleep, making cute little expressions. Her face lit up into a few sweet smiles, and I was able to capture them!
Along with the pretty pink springtime tones, we planned for some Paris themed photos too! Come to find out, her parents were actually engaged in Paris, which made the theme even more special! I used my mini Eiffel Tower, arranging it near her while she dozed on a little bed, and cutest of all…having her hold it closely with her tiny fingers. So sweet, and perfectly complimented to a Paris theme! What a fun story they’ll have to tell her!
To bring a little spring indoors, her momma brought along a bouquet of beautiful pink, magenta, and white peonies. We captured lots of beautiful shots with her surrounded in them. Add in a little more pink, a unicorn bonnet, angel wings, and a sparkly princess crown, and we finished up the session with tons of adorable, extra girly looks.
