When Zarina's mom brought her into my studio for the first time, I just couldn't contain my excitement! I knew we would get lots of beautiful images of this little cutiepie...but I had no idea that even at just nine days old she would already be on her best behavior. Simply put, little Zarina is pretty much my ideal baby to photograph. Perhaps a not-so-common fact about newborn photography is that, unlike photo shoots with older subjects, newborn sessions are filled with lots of mid-shoot feeding breaks, cuddle breaks, baby accidents, and the inevitable clean-ups that follow (after all, we are dealing with naked babies here! ;). But Zarina was by far the most well behaved baby I have ever had the privilege of photographing. She fell asleep as soon as she got to the studio, stayed asleep the ENTIRE time, and had NO accidents through out the entire session. She only began to wake up once we were packing up and saying goodbye! She was an absolute angel and as you can see, her hard work paid off, resulting in some incredible photographs for her family. If you haven't fulfilled your cuteness quota for the day, I suggest looking at the images below. They are bound to fulfill it. ;) ...Happy Tuesday!
Meet Alona. The poo princess.
I got to photograph Alona's older sister, Abigail, last year back when she was a newborn, and let me say, these two are a feisty bunch! All within the first couple hours of Alona's newborn session, Abigail had burped up milk all over the stairs, Alona pooped 3 separate times, yellow goo oozing through her mesh swaddling wraps (and 3 layers of blankets), and narrowly escaped peeing on my camera. After many cleanups, wet-wipes, and background changes later, we were finally successful in getting her to fall peacefully asleep....which lasted about 5 minutes, until she comically pee'd and woke herself back up.
I guess that's what I get for wanting to photograph naked babies!! Nonetheless, Alona was a doll, just like her sister, and I am overjoyed with the beautiful portraits we were able to capture of her!

I recently got the chance to photograph this little cutie. The story is...the Pottle's weren't sure what they were going to name their son until Wesley was born. So through out their pregnancy, the Pottle's simply referred to their son as "Prince Pottle." And without even knowing this, I had planned, and made, a prince's crown to use for their session! It was fate! Wesley was the most perfect, cooperative little man. I could have photographed him for hours!
Thank you Pottle Family for letting me capture your beautiful little family! I feel so blessed to have met you! Sorry for making your decision process so difficult! There were just TOO many adorable images to show you! ;)
