Let me just start off by saying I absolutely adore newborns. I adore them even more when I know Mom and Dad from their maternity session, because I feel a more personal connection to the family, which I strive for with all of my clients. It makes everyone more comfortable when I come over and start playing with Baby less than a week after she’s entered the world, haha! 🙂
Week before last, I got the absolute pleasure of hanging out with Ashlynn and Casey again, and meeting their new little arrival, Rileigh Emerson! Rileigh started the session off sleepily enough, but once she realized something was happening, she was fighting sleep like a champ! Eyes WIDE open, she was so curious about what was going on – even at 4 days old! Finally after some sweet Mommy snuggles, Rileigh settled back in and sleep overcame her. Then it was time for the fun to start!
Casey’s mom made the SWEETEST bunny ears and diaper cover, and so Ashlynn decided to theme the shoot around Easter! The bunny outfit, the most perfect basket ever, a few carrots from the fridge (haha!), and a grassy R made the perfect setup for an Easter themed newborn session. And definitely don’t forget the bunny burlap garland Ashlynn found, as well! No matter what position I put her in, she stayed perfectly asleep…until it was time for the outfit to come off. Then it was Daddy to the rescue with the cuddles and some sweet family photos to finish out the session.
Ashlynn and Casey, I cannot thank you enough for trusting me to document this special time in your lives! Rileigh is an absolute angel, and I loved getting to meet her! Enjoy the photos!
