Little Shaylee was so excited to meet her mama and daddy that she made her appearance three weeks before her due date. She was born at just a smidge over six pounds and perfectly healthy.
We were expecting Shaylee to come in for her newborn session after Easter, but since she made her appearance early we had to work in a cute little bunny somewhere! I found a lovely vendor on Etsy who made and shipped this adorable bunny hat in less than 24 hours! This photo of Shaylee wearing the bunny hat ended up being one of my absolute favorites ever! It’s now printed on a large canvas and is displayed in my studio. Doesn’t she just look so peaceful?
We kept the bunny hat on for a little while and got some cute photos of Shaylee in a basket, she loved being all wrapped up and curly in there.
We also tried out a new prop my husband and I made. Please note- the image below is a composite. Sweet baby Shaylee was never actually hanging in midair, this is multiple images put together using the magic of Photoshop to create one gorgeous photo. Newborn safety is ALWAYS the most important thing during a session. No shot is worth endangering a baby.
Shaylee settled in happily to pretty much every pose I put her in, she even gave us a happy little sleep smile.
Every baby has their own story that I like to try to capture in some small way. Part of Shaylee’s was her time spent under phototherapy lights for jaundice, because of the jaundice Shaylee had multiple heel sticks to check her bilirubin levels. The photo of her tiny little feet with the marks from those heel sticks helps tell that part of her story.
I loved capturing precious memories for Shaylee’s parents and I’d love to do the same for you.
