I love children’s portraits. Kids are so free and so genuine. They bring so much fun and personality to their portrait sessions. I especially love it when I get to share the joy of a new baby with close family and friends. Almost two years ago, my best friend had her first baby; and much to everyone’s excitement, it was a baby girl. My best friend’s mom had saved a lot of things from when she was a baby to pass it down to her daughter. When it came time for her baby shower, she had dresses that she wore pinned to the wall as part of the shower decorations.
We had big plans for her maternity portrait session. Even before she knew she was going to have a girl, she found the cutest baby heels from a company called Heelarious. Ready to go in her zebra print fabric and using those baby heels as props, we set up for our maternity portraits.
There was so much excitement and anticipation the night she arrived and I’m glad I got to be one of the people that had a first look. Mom, Dad, Grandma, Grandpa, Aunt, Uncle and I were there patiently waiting for Mom and Baby to make their grand appearance back from the O.R.
Finally she arrived!
Once she got got we had to get a few newborn portrait shots. Its fascinating to see those little baby fingers and toes.
