Sweet Newborn

I had the privilege of photographing this sweet baby girl when she was just 12 days old.

And since I was lucky enough to get my knitting kit from Santa, I made her a baby cocoon.

So cute with that little, bitty finger.

Don’t you just want to eat her cheeks?

When I made her hat, I thought it would also be fun to make a matching diaper cover. (I am slightly obsessed with knitting since Christmas, everyone is getting a hat whether they like it or not).

Oh yeah, that’s a smile.

And yes, she has parents! Carrie is the sister of one of my 2009 brides. Congratulations on your new little bundle of joy, she is an angel! Can’t wait to see you in June!

I offer lifestyle sessions as well as newborn and portrait sessions through Life by Heather. I did not accept many sessions in the last year or so because I was busy growing my own family. But now that Evan is one, I think I’d like to do more of these sessions, they are so much fun!

    These are fantastic pictures! Of course, it helped to have such an adorable baby girl to work with, but I LOVE the pictures. Hope all is well!

    I don't know, Heather. You may have to quit shooting weddings after word gets out you photograph babies. You are going to be pretty busy. LOL. These are just beautiful.

    P.S. Of course, you know you need to post a picture of the hat Ella made for her baby doll. Hey, do I sense a daughter/mother team in the brewing?

    I love your newborn pictures…very inspiring. The hats are just terrific. Glad to hear your family is doing well as you were pregnant when you did my brother's wedding (Barry,Leigh Nelson) and I was the one trying to balance a baby and a wedding as a bridesmaid! Once you have kids you find photographing them even more emotional and gratifying. Looking forward to seeing what you knit next!
