You may remember this beautiful mom and dad from their maternity session just a month and a half ago. I loved that session and their beautiful spirit then and once again, their love for each other and their baby girl overwhelmed me. Our newborn photography session was quite long and I spent quite a bit of time holding and comforting her. I wanted to take her home with me!!! Their little princess was perfect. Photographing this family has been an absolute pleasure and delight. I hope the photos bring them so much joy.

Mom and Dad, I hope you enjoy your preview. Tell your friends and family members to check out the images and leave a little love on your blog post.

I’m sure I have mentioned this before, but baby photography sessions…..especially when held in baby’s nursery…..are one of my favorite sessions. If you did not have newborn photographs done in your home, or even if you did, the 6-7 month age is an excellent time to document baby’s home life and their room. This little boy was happy to oblige me with his sitting, standing, and smiling skills. And while he gave me, his mommy, and his daddy a bit of a workout this morning, he still graced us with his charm, pleasant demeanor, and great smile:)
