I love newborns. Seriously love them, because they are so soft and sleepy (at least when I get to see them!). They have a particular fresh smell. And then, in the blink of an eye, they grow like crazy and aren’t newborns anymore. They stop sleeping so much and start engaging with their world.
I have particular favorites about every age group that I’ve ever photographed…and one of my top favorite things about photographing a newborn is that I get the chance to document that tiny window of time when they’re still recovering from being in utero for 9 months. It’s so neat and pretty amazing that in no time at all, they’ll be a walking, talking person with their own unique personality.
When her mom, Kathy, asked me about newborn photos, I was super excited. I’d seen Adalee at church a couple of times and was in love with her sweet face and her hair…oh my! that hair!
Okay, I’ll hush, now…and let you enjoy the sweetness.
Kathy, I hope you enjoy these photos! Thanks so much for sharing Adalee with me for a couple hours – I SO enjoyed getting to know her (and you!) better!!
