A breath of fresh air. Abella, in French, means “breath”, and mom says her little one is a breath of fresh air for their family. I’d have to agree with mom on this, this newborn session was such a refreshing experience for me. I loved using that deep, purple backdrop, and wrapping Abella in a little purple blanket. I think trailing it off into the background gave it a little more interest, although, Abella really is the show-stopper here. She’s one of the cutest newborns I’ve seen (and I’ve seen a lot of them!), and her sweet family was so great to work with.
Abella has an older sister to look up to, as well as the most wonderful parents you could ask for. Her process getting here wasn’t always smooth, though. Mom said, “She was born weighing in at 7 pounds, 4 ounces, and was 20.5 inches long. After having a difficult pregnancy with lots of health scares, it’s been so rewarding having healthy Abella with us. It just goes to show God has the last say, and we are beyond blessed. Her sister, Alesandria, loves being a big sister! She told Abella the other day, while she was in her arms, that she never knew what was missing from her life until she came along.”
What a precious little one Abella is, and equally precious is the family she was born into. One of my favorite parts of newborn sessions is getting to meet all these new people, newly come into the world. They’re so cute, and I love the privilege of capturing their first moments. But they’re also so fragile, and I want to always remind my clients, and anyone thinking of getting photos taken of their precious newborn, to be cautious and find photographers with ample knowledge and experience in taking newborn photography. There’s so much involved outside of clicking the shutter, and there are many things that can go wrong. I’ve spent hundreds of hours honing this specific craft, and am learning how better to handle your treasured child every day.
When your child is in my hands, they’re in good ones.
