About a week after I took maternity photos for Becky and Bobby, Becky began experiencing somewhat minor(ish) complications with her pregnancy. Baby Chloe wasn’t due to arrive until the first part of April, but it was becoming more and more apparent that she would probably make her appearance a bit earlier than planned.
Then a week before Chloe’s scheduled arrival, Becky went to the doctor and didn’t come home again without her sweet baby in tow.
I am so excited to be able to share Chloe with you, now.
Be still, my heart….
I called it…Becky and Bobby are great parents. They were so calm and casual…I could tell they love Chloe so much.When I go for newborn photo sessions, there is never any knowing how the baby will do. Some babies stay pretty groggy and sleepy. Others just will. not. sleep. Others wake up and need some food a few times. I just never know and it’s one of the things that makes a newborn photo session so much fun for me. Capturing the baby in the moments I am present. In this case, Chloe slept the. entire. time. She was zonked when I arrived and woke up at the very end, just before I left.
In this photo, she looks JUST like her mom.
She may have her mama’s nose and mouth, but Becky says that Chloe has her daddy’s long fingers.
And – again – be still, my heart. She sucks her fingers. (I have 2 finger/thumb suckers, myself, so I have a special affinity for babies who also do this :))
Becky and Bobby visited Italy not too long ago and purchased the most beautiful custom-made baby blanket that is sure to become a family heirloom piece. We were sure to get some photos of Chloe in her special blanket.
And this headband. I take back my previous comment about Chloe sleeping the entire time…as I’m looking through these photos, I remember – she did not care for the headband one bit….and made sure that we understood that fact. 🙂
I got a few photos of not-upset-Chloe-with-the-headband-on and then she got upset with us. Once we took it off, she went right back to sleep again. Like magic. 🙂
She’s not picky about which finger she sucks just yet. 🙂
There are her little eyes! <3
Becky and Bobby, I can’t tell you just how much I loved getting to see you again…this time, with Chloe in the world. She is precious and beautiful and I hope you enjoy these photos as much as I do! Thanks again for allowing me to share in this time with your newly formed family! <3
