Elliana's Newborn Session

I am going to be going back to showing sneak peeks from sessions. I don’t showcase my work on my blog very often and I think that I need to get back into doing that. So without further ado…

Elliana is the newest member of the Vaughn household as she was born on the 3rd of October. I have never done a newborn session before and I felt very honored that Nicole asked if I would do them for her. I have been photographing her and her family for a few years now.

A few things I learned about Elli during this newborn session is that she wears her emotions on her face. If she is happy, upset or mad, she will tell you and you don’t have to guess how she feels. She has already learned how to mean mug and it’s the most adorable thing I have seen. There were a few times she wanted to stand her ground and not have her photo taken, but with a little creativity, we made it work. (Thanks, Eric, for being a prop!) Now let me get to showing her off. Welcome to the world Elliana. I can’t wait to get to know you over the years.

Also, this was my VERY first newborn session (and I don’t have children of my own). So, I may not really have known how to put Elli in a swaddle correctly or how to calm a baby to get the photos I was looking for, but this was a totally awesome experience. I learned a lot just in that small time frame. So thank you Nicole for trusting me with this precious moment. I really appreciate it.
