I received an email months before this little one was born from her grandmother. She really wanted to gift her son and his girlfriend this session. How awesome is that? Of course, being a newborn photographer and a mother, I think this is the perfect gift to give someone. I know that your newborn session is a huge investment and often times families just can't budget for the cost of an investment like this with so many other things going on in their lives such as getting the nursery ready, purchasing car seats, cribs, and the million other things you need for your baby. I do think that the newborn stage really does fly by and if you haven't arranged for it ahead of time, before you know it those first few weeks are gone. Grandma kept it a secret right up until delivery which I think was so awesome!
This little one made her arrival on the 4th of July so they really wanted some images to show that off. Unfortunately she spent weeks in the NICU and so her session took place 3 weeks after she was born. I worked a bit harder to get her settled but once she did she just slept right through everything.
Here are a few of my favorites from her session.
