This is a new venture for me. Newborn photography has captured my heart and imagination ever since I first laid eyes on this website, Captured by Carrie, about four years ago. Babies are so new, so fresh, but so different. From their funny little expressions that captivate your heart, to the way they hold their mouths while asleep, they are their own personalities and it amazes me that more people do not capture that in a photograph.
I finally had the opportunity to sit down and spend time with this little girl.
She was fighting sleep with all the little strength she could muster. She wanted to see Mom and she wanted to understand what I was as well.
Her little eyes would fill up with sand and then she would pull them back open to get one last glance at the world before drifting off to sleep. That was just fine with me though because Mom and I could have looked at those baby blue eyes for a long time.
Once asleep she had us smiling and laughing to each other...in those hushed coos you make
as to not wake the baby.
Small smiles would tug at the corners of her mouth
and something was very funny in her slumbery world.
Her fingers would stretch and her toes would wiggle,
which lead to sudden hushed stillness from Mom and I.
We had one opportunity for a quick change and choose this orange hat.
Very trendy baby don't you think...
Thank you so much for spending the day with me Jessica! I so enjoyed getting to know your little family and wish you all only the very best. I cannot wait to see Gavin and Quinn grow and I am already planning those 8 month photos.
Goodnight stars, Goodnight Air, Goodnight noises everywhere
If you are getting ready to celebrate your own baby's birth shoot me an email! I would love to photograph your Christmas baby in a see of ribbons or in a package full of tissue paper under the tree. It would be a jolly good time!!!
