Tiny Packages

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!
