carrie & co.
I don't know what it is. What. It. Is, people. But I was visited by yet another little red head today! Seriously. And she had the most beautiful little nose and china doll lips. Miss Emily is 2.5 weeks old, so tall (like her daddy) and so sweet (like her mama). I think this was a record newborn shoot: in and out in almost less than an hour. When discussing the "vision" of the session, Carrie said she wanted simple. Which is my favorite kind of newborn shoot. Her only request, she informed me, was to get a shot of Emily with a stuffed pelican. Apparently Emily's grandma is a big fan of the bird, and they have a special meaning to her. And you know me, dear reader, I'm not one to disappoint the grandparents. And Miss Emily was not one to disappoint me. Even though she's going through a growth spurt at the moment (and I can't imagine how much taller she'll get, because she's so tall already!), she was just an angel. Eye contact for the beginning of the shoot, snuggles with Mom and Dad, some smiles for the camera, and then lots of dreamy, sleepy newborn poses at the end. Easy, peasy. Carrie and Brad, thank you so much for bringing your beautiful baby girl out to see me. It was such an honor and so much fun. Enjoy your sneak!
