So excited to share this sweet newborn session with you this afternoon! Meet Ariana, the newest addition to my coworker Veronica’s beautiful family. For the past month I watched poor Veronica walk past my office, getting more uncomfortable as the days went on – she’s petite, so there wasn’t much room left in her tiny frame for baby Ariana! But now she’s here and not a moment too soon! I arrived at their home early this morning and we set up in their family room which as you can see is full of wonderful light. Ariana snoozed like a champ for a good hour and then started to wake up, but seemed pretty content to let us shift her around for more photos – a natural model, this one. She looks a lot like her Mama and big sister Marina with gorgeous dark hair, so I’m not surprised that the camera loved her. They made it too easy! Big brother Colin was very busy with his cars and managed to escape my lens every time I tried to snap a photo, so I told him to whisper the names of his favorite cars in his sister’s ear. It was too cute! If you ever wonder how photographers get those angelic, straight-out-of-a-magazine moments, trust me, there’s usually something like that going on behind the scenes – shhhh, don’t tell! Just pretend I’m that goodWe got a bunch of photos inside and then moved outside for some family time (and Colin’s dance time – you’ll have to wait for the full set to see those) and then finished up with the always tricky no-diaper shots inside again. I think those might be my favorites, but I’ll let you decide. Hope you enjoy these!
