Baby Elizabeth

| Newborn Photography, Partnering with Merci Bouquet, Props

What a pleasure it was to shot Baby Elizabeth’s newborn portraits. You might remember her parent’s maternity session recently (the scrabble pieces were popular). Her parents were so patient for this session! It’s really the baby who runs a newborn session. If she wants to eat… she eats. If she doesn’t like one position… we move to another. I think Baby Elizabeth stopped to eat 3 or 4 times… that’s my kind of girl. 🙂

I really enjoy capturing what’s going on at this moment in a family’s life. Knowing that Elizabeth’s dad is a youth minister I was inspired to incorporate this Bible (just her size).

Her mother’s wedding ring was added into the next picture. (Note to self: ask parents to take off wedding rings before they’re in a hot room for an hour if you want to use them as props. Poor dad hurt his hand trying to take his off.)

Does this nest look familiar? Merci Bouquet Design‘s owner, Julie, designed it in the previous blog post.

Isn’t she precious?
