Perfect babies come in the tiniest of packages. Introducing little Anna. A sweet 7 day old, that at our session, weighed in at just 4 lbs 15 oz. My tiniest, and sleepiest (!) baby of all time. She was an absolute dream to photograph. Even when she protested being moved or un-swaddled, it was only for a minute, and then she was right back to sleep. It was a good thing too, because after 6 newborn boys in a row, I was super excited to have a little girl. My own personal little doll for the morning! And I came prepared to play dress-up. I had a ton of new headbands, wraps, slings, ruffle-y bloomers, a doll bed... you get the idea. (oh, and the wooden bowl Anna is modeling, was carved, by hand, by her great-great grandfather! So cool!)
Anna's mom is one of my oldest friends. She and I have been friends since the first grade! It is really amazing to see her as a mom. Only 7 days in, and she is a pro. She is so confident and comfortable with the baby. And Anna's daddy is a natural too. They are both completely in love with this teeny, tiny little human. And it is a beautiful thing.
I loved everything about this session. Spending a Sunday morning with friends AND cuddling a sweet newborn, it just doesn't get much better. Except for the fact that it was in a beautiful home, with tons of space to take pictures. The session even had a very well behaved dog that posed beautifully for me. Thanks Oliver!
There are so many good pictures from this session (if I do say so myself). It was really hard to narrow it down to just a few to post here.
Congratulations Mike and Terri. Anna is just perfect!
