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 Emma arrived!!! 

Congratulations Powers and Ashley on your precious little Bebe... She is just too adorable. I guess we lucked out because her newborn session was a hit! Little lady slept the whole way through even when we brought the doggies in to say hello! 

I had the opportunity to photograph Powers and Ashley's wedding earlier this year and this was such a special treat to also be able to document their sweet girl's first couple days in the Big Ole World!

Welcome, Baby Emma!

Mommy and daddy seemed to be living la vida bebe!!

They were so smitten in the midst of the tiredness that newborns can bring.

I almost died when I was photographing Emma in daddy's arms. You would have thought she was in daddy heaven with her sweet head propping.

Mommy is an avid horseback rider so we made her portrait dreams come true with baby Emma and her faithful saddle. Baby Emma loved it.
