Baby AJ at 3 weeks old

This beautiful girl came to the studio when she was 3 weeks old.  Her mom and dad brought things from their home that reflect their love of the outdoors, of hunting and fishing and nature.   We used their items and mine to create these images.  Sweet AJ apparently loved being swaddled, since she slept all the way through.  She slept until it was time to eat and go home.

This gorgeous boy was very curious about what was going on in the studio. We'd get him asleep and his eyes would pop back open.  He was a darling and did let me rock and pat him, he liked that.  With my youngest grandchild being 2 soon, it always feels nice to hold a new baby.

 

 

He came just 6 days after we went to his families' Weatherford farm to photograph his mom, dad and big brother.

He loved it and slept a while.

Adaline came to see me in my Cresson studio, she was super cute, super sweet and super cooperative. This newborn girl is so pretty, when she's a teen, daddy will be guarding the door.  We got images of mom holding her too and we tried to recreate the images of mom with the pink dress flying. We almost got one exactly like it. Adaline's daddy Miguel is a very talented dress thrower.
