Baton Rouge Newborn Family Session

Umm, this Newborn Session slash Family Session was just the most perfect ever!!! 

I met this family through their doula, Katy Soong from Louisiana Birth, and these two were just darling. I did their natural birth session a couple weeks ago and it was the first natural birth I photographed and seriously one of the best experiences to date! Justin was a super-dad supporting Michelle and she was just a rockstar delivering Mckenzie! 

We got together after newborn Mckenzie got situated and mom and dad got some sleep :) We actually live in the same part of town, the best part, in the Garden District. When I walked into their apartment I just fell in love. I could not stop taking pictures of newborn Mackenzie's most perfect room! It was a pale mint green and had darling, little decor items in accent color GOLD for the win!!!

Michelle was truly a natural mommy. Loving on her new baby girl like they were long lost buds.

Newborn Mckenzie was just the sweetest!! She even let us semi-get her into a tutu!! I am pretty sure it was a tad itchy because it certainly didn't last long on. But look how precious she looks with her sweet little sleepy self with her bow! Just edible!

Little fingers are the best next to little toes, of course!

We moved into the living area that was guess what?? DARLING... 

This was all their sides of their family together on one piece of artwork. Both sets of their  parents parent's :) And they shared the stories of them with me. It was so refreshing to see them cherishing their families history. And to top it off it was all displayed in a DYI. I just loved it all.

They really were just naturals with their newborn Mckenzie. 

Doesn't she look so smitten in his arms.

Baby George in all his sweetness.

Georgie is a fan of the sea and whales even more particularly.

And Natty is a fan of little, tiny toes on little, tiny feets!

For some reason this face just says it all. "Ok, mom. Photoshoot almost a wrap? I need some milk."

And this image right here has to be my favorite of all. Carolyn making motherhood look so flawless and easy. She is very smitten for her sweetheart, George Elliot.

This I love though. Someone is feeling left out.

Not for long though!

Still plotting on how to get Baby George's spot :)

This little bundle was such a joy for me to capture. Not only is she my new niece but she is also the second Dinkel girl, aside from her Aunt Cami, and has been a long awaited arrival.

Her mama wanted an 8/8 birthday so badly that I am pretty sure she pushed off labor on 8/7 and told that sweet baby girl she had to wait and bake a little longer. 

I did a Hospital session or what you might know as Fresh 48 where you capture the first precious moments of life with the family and baby. 

 With four boy cousins, this family was eagerly awaiting their sweet girls' arrival and last Friday was there debut into their little world... These were a few of her fan club's attendants... 

She was passed around the room with every blink of an eye- on and on- into everyone's arms. Getting kissed and snuggled and warmed with all her new families love. 

And there was one little fella that was most certainly excited to get to meet her, her new big brother, Louis. 

And they all lived happily ever after. 

The end.
