Look at her gorgeous hair!! I had the honor of meeting and photographing Baby Ashley and her wonderful parents 8 days after she was born. Ashley pretty much slept through the entire portrait session (and during the viewing session few days later as well) that I don’t remember her crying nor fussing! Ashley was the perfect model for me to capture those sweet and precious baby moments. In fact, she was cooperative from the start when she was born on her due date so that we didn’t have to reschedule her session! Ashley brought along a special ivory blanket, which was crocheted by her Grandma, who also joined us during the session, and a patchwork blanket & knitted stuffed animal, which were made by her family friends. What a lucky baby to receive all those beautiful handmade gifts with love! I adore them all and couldn’t resist ending the session with those special props! I usually advise the parents to relax on the couch and most parents take turns catching up their sleep. However, since I was photographing with a belly, Ashley’s parents were more concerned about my health and they helped me soothe and pose Ashley throughout the session. This definitely allowed me to capture a more variety of shots, and I really appreciate them for being so concerned about how I was feeling throughout the session.
Congratulations to Ashely’s family! You’ve been blessed with such a precious gift in sweet Ashley! I am so happy for you all and am looking forward to seeing Ashley grow! Also, thank you for trusting me to capture your little one. =) Here are some of my favorites from the portrait session.
