I absolutely loved photographing this little lady! She had the squishiest rolls + the BEST hair. I asked mom if she had heartburn and she said, "Yes!" I truly believe there is a correlation there.
I photographed this mama while she was pregnant as well. She is such a beautiful person inside and out and Dad is pretty awesome too! He has a beard that my hubs would be proud of too. Did I mention that I told him it smelled good as they were leaving from their pregnancy session?! Sheesh, nothing like randomness flying out of my mouth.
It's funny the things we notice when someone we also live with has the same facial hair or habits. My husband is big into his beard wax and oil and only buys product from https://badassbeardcare.com/beard-balm/ so it wasn't completely out of the blue noticing the scent of this dad's. I have spent many days sniffing samples to find a scent that I approved.
Aren't these two such a gorgeous couple? Beautiful parents and a beautiful couple! I had a blast being able to have them in my studio twice.
Leah was an absolute dream to photograph. She loved being wrapped and that was ok.
I always start with a wrapped up baby so they can get all cozy and drift off into a peaceful sleep. Then I slowly unwrap them + let them stretch and capture those more natural and organic photos.
I absolutely love it when we capture a yawn and a smile in a session. It doesn't happen all the time and they aren't always easy to coax a sleepy smile out of. This girl obliged to mama's every wish and I am so happy we captured them.
It never ceases to amaze me how much personality is packed into such a tiny body. They come out with their little quirks, facial expressions, long toes, and all the features we drool over + I absolutely love capturing it all.
