As a Quad Cities newborn photographer, there is simply nothing better than snuggling these sweet newborn babies! Everything from the little noises they make, to that fresh baby smell, and those adorably tiny features, are what makes this ‘job’ so wonderful!
This baby girl and her family drove in from Iowa City for her session. I was really excited to work with them as this little girl’s mom and I used to show horses together. It’s really neat how everything plays out. We used to be kids doing things together, and now here we are with our own babies! It’s hard to believe, but it’s so wonderful at the same time!
This sweet baby was so good for her session. In the beginning, she was wide awake so we took full advantage of that and captured some of those really great shots with her eyes open. Once she fell asleep, though, I was able to mold her into those beautiful positions and setups. She was sound asleep and so peaceful for her session. Her modeling career is off to a great start I’d say!
I’m very excited that this little girl is part of my Grow With Me package. The package is really incredible as we’ll be able to work together to capture and document her milestones over the course of the year. Then at the end of the one year, she will get an album with all her parent’s favorite images from each session! It’s like a storybook of her first year…it’s so beautiful and something they can all treasure for years to come.
So with all that being said, please take a look at some of my favorite images from her session. And don’t miss the one of her and her big sister! It’s pretty cute to see how her proud her big sister is of her.
