Happy New Year everyone!!!
Wow… What a great holiday we’ve had! We spent the last week visiting my family in snowy Southampton and had a great Christmas with the whole family. We’ll be back to work January 2nd but I couldn’t wait to get this blog post up while on holiday.
It seems like SO many of my clients are referrals these days. Word of mouth is probably my major source of new clients and it really feels like I have a connection with these parents before we even meet. When I met Melissa, beautiful little baby Layla’s mom, I felt like I sort of knew her already. Melissa is little baby Kashton’s Auntie and I have been great friends with Kash’s mom Tash for a few years now. We shot Tash’s gorgeous wedding on a cliff top over-looking the ocean in Barbados last year and fell in love with their whole family! It was really nice to finally meet Melissa for little Layla’s shoot and to see the similarities between the two sisters 🙂 They’re both very considerate, kind and not to mention great moms!
I was so excited when Melissa came by the studio with sweet newborn baby Layla! She was in an adorable fuzzy pink snow suit and was snug as a bug sleeping away. When it was time to shoot she was such a perfect little model and gave me some really cute sleepy smiles too!
Doesn’t Layla have the cutest little cheeks, she reminds me of a chubby cherub, too cute! I had a lot of fun using some different props and set ups for her newborn session. Newborn photography does take a while as it’s very important that you allow time for feedings, changes and make sure the baby feels calm and relaxed. I was having so much fun during our afternoon session that the sun set by the time I was done!! Wow is it ever getting dark fast this time of year.
Baby Layla was so adorable I know that she and her new cousin Kash were probably super spoiled by Santa this year! It was great having mom Melissa and baby Layla by the studio to capture some awesome newborn pictures while she was still so tiny! I can’t wait to see them both in another few months for their next baby session to document Layla as she grows.
Thanks to everyone for taking the time in 2009 to check out what’s been happening on my blog and especially for leaving all of your kind comments on my posts! I really appreciate it and I really appreciate all of you!! Have a great 2010!!!
