Eliza’s mom contacted me on a Monday afternoon asking if I had any availability for a newborn session – and quick – her little one was already 13 days old and mom had decided that she would like some newborn photos after all! Before Eliza was born she had not thought that she was interested in a session, but after many discussions with other moms online, she changed her mind. This being her third baby, she knew that her little girl would be changing – and quickly! Thankfully we were able to work out a last minute session the next morning with Eliza – I was even able to find an assistant on short notice.
What a sweet little beauty! Despite the personal record-breaking amount of human waste on me (and many of my props) throughout the session, we had a great time and were able to get some great images! We even got to venture outside on such a gorgeous day! This was actually my first time photographing a newborn outside – I hadn’t even planned on being outdoors, but the opportunity presented itself and I jumped at it! So glad I did – of course, as a former environmental educator, I love most things outdoors 🙂 These are absolutely some of my favorite images of any newborn I’ve photographed so far!
Let these images be a reminder to all parents-to-be: if you decide you want a newborn session, contact me ASAP – even if it’s the very last minute – I may be able to make it work! Of course, to guarantee a session date, be sure to get in touch sometime in your second or third trimester.
