I couldn’t wait to meet this sweet little lady! Her due date was January 27th and I kept checking for the message that she arrived.  But she didn’t want to make her debut until February 6th!   For being past due she was a tiny little thing!  She looked so dainty in all of the set ups I planned for her.

It has finally warmed up in Louisiana and the tulips are blooming.  Those are my absolute favorite flowers so I couldn’t resist picking some up for this beauty’s newborn session.  Her momma chose peach for her accent color and we incorporated some soft pinks too.  It came out soooo pretty!

Now if you follow me, you know I can’t resist a baby in a bear bonnet…. It is definitely one of my favorites.  I think I need some new colors…..

After I unwrapped her she decided she wanted a little snack.  Then we had just about the cutest little stare-down until she fell asleep again.  But I can’t complain.  I love getting photos of baby awake too.  She had amazing eye contact and was so alert!

Its funny how different they look awake!  You can see her little personality shining through.  She had such a good temperment and even when she was awake she never fussed.  Was just as curious as can be!   Her beautiful fair skin and light hair looked so pretty in peach and cream.

Last but not least, the sweetest of family photos.  Momma looked sooo beautiful and so in love and Miss Estelle looked so tiny in her Daddy’s hands!   These are always my favorite from every session.  I wish I had photos like this with my girls when they were little.
