My Baby’s Newborn Photo Session!

I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again… I am so grateful to have been able to hire a professional photographer to take Amani’s newborn pictures. I didn’t have to put any effort into creating the gorgeous images besides making sure Amani was fed and happy.

Though our newborn session was scheduled a little later than usual, Amani was one month old at the time, I loved how it captured her so well. Alert and wide-eyed, she was absolutely adorable in her pictures. I wanted to share a few of my favorites with you all because really, who doesn’t love newborn photography?

  • Love


    I know, I know, ‘what newborn can hold her head up like that!?’

    Despite my best attempt to schedule the sessions sooner, these pictures were taken when she was a month old.

    How sweet does she look against that bright, fun backdrop? Love it!

  • Wide Awake

    Wide Awake

    Amani was wide awake during majority of the session! She’s a very light sleeper and was too interested in the excitement to sleep.

    To me, seeing the images of her wide eyed are just as precious as the sleeping images.

  • Sleepy


    It took a lot of work, and nursing, to get Amani to finally fall asleep!

    But once she did, she looked absolutely angelic.

  • Dress Up

    Dress Up

    It was fun to swap out wraps and fabrics as well as headbands and halos. No wonder where little girls develop their love of dress-up!

  • Bright Eyes

    Bright Eyes

    The great thing about photographers is that they have a lot of props and textures that make the sessions more interesting. I loved the color and texture of the purple rug and the softness of the white scarf.

  • Sweetness


    Some of my favorites from the entire session were those that featured my favorite geometric design as the backdrop. I use my shower curtain to get the effect!! It worked out perfectly.

Thank you Hala Hyatt for the gorgeous pictures!
