So although I might not have kept up with my resolution to post to my blog once a week, I did manage to finish my photography project last year of taking a photo a week. It was fantastic, I made a book out of the pictures and it was truly a complete encapsulation of the year. There were some weeks I can tell I was struggling for inspiration and the pictures taken as a result were not up to my standards, but it was definitely a learning experience.
This year I'm not making any promises. I might post, I might not. But for now I wanted to show this beautiful newborn session I did that just screams spring! This lovely little lady was very alert and just wanted to see everything. Such sweet parents too, mom looked absolutely dazzling only a week after delivery. Just a beautiful family inside and out. I hope to see them again for Baby D's first birthday!
Outdoor photos with a newborn can be tough, there are just so many factors out of your control. That's why I only do my newborn sessions in my studio, where the control freak in me can manage the temperature, noise level and any disturbances to my heart's content. But this day, although it was threatening rain, was absolutely perfect. Would you believe these photos were taken just in my backyard?
