Mandeville Newborn Photographer {Grace Day 8}

I was excited and nervous for this session all at the same time.  Erin is a fellow photographer so I wanted it to be extra perfect.  Annnnd not only is she a photographer but she is also a teacher too just like me!  So she totally get’s my struggles.  Luckily she brought me just about the sweetest, sleepiest, smiliest baby on the planet.  The sex of their baby was a surprise so she chose the prettiest blue as an accent color.  I was secretly hoping for a girl so I could use blue for her session which is so rare….and I knew how pretty momma was and thought she might favor her.  Well….I was right.

She started her session smiling, and just didn’t stop.

And there were like a million smiles in between those poses!

After a few on the bean bag she started waking up so I decided to wrap her up and come back to them.  She was so content and gave even more smiles!

Her nursery has little lambs in it so I couldn’t resist….

Erin requested lots of all cream set ups.  I could not complain one bit.  Those are my absolute favorite.

I picked up these flowers for her session the day before and had this set up in mind.  I think my favorite part of being a photographer is seeing your vision come to life.  I adore how it came out!

I mean how precious is that!? Not a peep the whole time.  We tried to get parent poses after this set up but she started looking for a snack.  My goodness this little girl can eat!  The best part was mom pumped so I got to give her a bottle! It’s the little things, right?!

Well it’s obvious where she gets her good looks from…How pretty is her mama??

She wore the same dress that she wore for her engagement photos.  That is so special!  I just love how happy and in love they look with this tiny new person.

Couldn’t love this more.  With so many options for newborn photographers, I am so honored they chose me to capture such a special time.  This job is such a blessing.  Erin took so many behind the scenes photos which was so much fun to see! I never get to see what I look like during a session.  I couldn’t love them more!
