I already did my retrospective a few posts back, so I’ll just mention here that this morning I photographed my last photoshoot of the year. Whew! What a wonderful way to end the year. Meet 8 day old E. She is just about the most precious thing in the entire world. I was in love with her snuggliness, and her spiky hair.
This is the third photoshoot I’ve had with this particular family — combine that with the fact we both have sons about the same age and I have come to consider them friends. I always love to go over to their house, because I know I’ll have fun. And talk a lot. And the light… oh my, the light in their home is scumptious. I think they could probably rent it out to photographers. So I couldn’t keep them waiting for their newborn pictures while I was on holiday break. I just couldn’t. These photos are too fun not to share. And there are a lot of them, so make sure you’re comfortable. You’ll probably want to take a little nap after seeing all this coziness.
She was a sleepy little one. And very snuggly.
I love the look on her face in this next one.
I just bought these scarves, so E was the first newborn to try them out. She found them quite cozy, as you can see.
Her room, which you might remember from the maternity session I posted a few weeks ago, is completely adorable. She also snuggled in there for a while.
Then it was off for photos with mommy and daddy.
What do you think — first official smile caught on film?
And of course, we couldn’t leave out photos with her big brother.
This one is funny, because we noticed while we were taking the photos that E and her dad were “sleeping” almost exactly the same way.
The epitome of cozy.
And finally, completely out of chronological order, one of my new favorite newborn photos ever. I’m pretty certain I’m going to enlarge this one BIG for my studio. So peaceful.
