Three Perfect Princesses
I have photographed Shellie’s family a few times over the past 5 years and have really enjoyed watching them grow. When she contacted me for a newborn session recently, I was ecstatic to find out that she would be adding another little princess to her family. Shellie is a lot like me in the way that she likes a vintage look, loves flowers and lace, and does not shy away from the color pink. Shellie lives in Idaho now, but she made the drive with her husband and three kids to Utah to photograph Adaley’s newborn session.
All the Vintage Goodness
Once Shellie’s family arrived, I pulled out all of my vintage lace, quilts and clothing. I showed her a pile of pinks and creams and ruffles. We oohed and aahed over my brand new canopy, giggled at how tiny Adaley looked on my newborn bed, and watched her older two girls spin circles in my fancy Dollcake dresses.
Adaley’s sisters, Paisley and Kynlee, were so smitten with their new sister. She was so teeny and snuggled into them so nicely. They wanted to caress her little toes and kiss her smooth forehead. They were so patient as I set up each new photo and loved the opportunity to dress up.
Photos with Mom and Dad
I strongly encourage parents to get into photos with their new babies. Often, moms will worry that they haven’t lost their baby weight, or they just don’t feel like themselves, but encourage it anyway, because there are only a few weeks to capture your baby at her tiniest before she starts to grow and change. Shellie has done a newborn session with me before, so she and Alan came prepared to get into photos with Adaley.
I love this family so much. Shellie has become a close friend since she first hired me years ago. Adaley was welcomed to my studio with excitement, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on this new little bundle of joy. Thank you to Shellie, Alan and your three perfect princesses for trusting me to continue to capture and preserve your family’s most precious memories!
