I have been so looking forward to posting this session! Elaina is the last baby from my June baby boom and you guys, she was the PERFECT newborn to shoot. She slept so soundly the whole time we were moving her around, she didn’t fuss, she is just a happy little girl! Her parents are incredibly genuine and I enjoyed spending the morning with their family of 3.
Think pink. Think girly. There’s a whole lot of that coming your way!
I love everything about this image. The way you can see her curly little fingers, her sweet cheeks, her dark hair. There’s no denying it, Elaina is simply gorgeous!
At the end of her session we popped into her nursery and it is DARLING. Elaina wanted to show off her cute bedding and got a little bit of love from her mama.
I’m a sucker for antiques and heirlooms and smiling babies so this just picture perfect in my mind! Antique catalog drawer, Elaina’s mama’s baby blanket (made with love by Mary Kathryne’s grandma), and of course the best part, Elaina’s adorable grin.
Her hair is so perfect!
Mary Kathryn and Eyad have this new parenting thing down. They seemed like old pros and I was impressed!
Not going to lie, I love this bucket image! And that’s another one of her mama’s baby blankets. Love that.
So this is probably not the kind of prop you were expecting to see. Elaina’s great-grandma bought this outfit set decades ago (they think she was intending on using it for one of her own kids or grandkids) and Elaina had the honor of breaking it in as a surprise for her great-grandma. Doesn’t she look like a porcelain doll?
Sweet and simple.
Eyad is a hands-on (diaper changing and all!) first time dad. He loves his baby girl so so much!
Beautiful baby girl.
Wide eyed and ready to hang out! Eyad, Mary Kathryn, and Elaina, thank you for letting me invade your home with all of my props and accessories. Elaina was such a great baby that I wound up staying longer than usual because she was so cooperative and sleepy. Worth it!! I cannot wait to see her again for her 6 month session! Congratulations on the new addition to your fabulous family!
