If there's one subject I just can't get enough of, it's newborns! They're cuddly, warm and just beyond precious, I truly cherish the newbies I have the privilege of photographing. Miss Maya is no different. Maya's mommy and my mother are former co-workers and I was even lucky enough to take their first daughter, Emma's portraits back in 2013. Siblings are super fun, especially when you get to see them at the same age and compare features, little Maya was a copy of Emma at this age!
Just for fun, here is Emma as a newborn! :)
Most newborns start awake for photos and gradually fall asleep, at least that is the case with my in-home sessions. Little Maya stayed awake almost the entire session! Even her sleepy poses have some squinty eyes open, just too much excitement to sleep! :)
I always try to get family involved with their newborns. Not only will baby be this little for so long, but the interactions and bonds with baby are just priceless. Here are some highlights from Maya's newborn portraits, enjoy!
