I am REALLY loving newborn photography lately. It’s definitely something I’m working on expanding. I’ve been hunting in vintage shops, or really any store I go to, for new props. I always tell my boys, “Look for something I can put a baby in.” Ok, I actually us the word “shove,” but I would never do something that would put a baby in danger. Whenever a baby is in or on something (like a sling or stool) at least one parent is just inches away in case they start wiggling. So, meet Ashton’s sister, Marli! She is such a sweetie!
At first, she kept sticking her leg out, but once she settled in, she was so peaceful I didn’t want to take her out!
Arghhh…the newborn pirate eye.
Brother and sister! This pretty much sums up Ashton.
Marli & Ashton’s mom went to high school with me, and she is still friends with my friend, Laura. So I had Laura come to see Marli, but also to get a few of her 6mo son, James! He is the sweetest, most happy chubby baby I’ve ever seen! I’m a proud auntie.
This is a pose I probably wouldn’t normally do, but since she had one like this of her first born, and since she is my BFF, I did it. I just love his eyes and mouth in this one.
