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?
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!
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.
It took a lot of work, and nursing, to get Amani to finally fall asleep!
But once she did, she looked absolutely angelic.
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!
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.
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!
