Strawberry Blonde | Alexandria Va Newborn Photographer
As a newborn photographer baby fever is just one of the hazards of the job. You just can’t help it! Being a boy mom it is the little girls that get me every time and this little darling with her red hair just stole my heart.
Carrot Tops and Blue-Eyed Blondes
I always dreamed of a blue-eyed red-headed little girl of my own. Instead, I got a blue-eyed blonde and a carrot top like the Lonestar song “My Front Porch Looking In”! Sidenote: that song makes me cry because my hubby once told me that song is his life! Actually, this little girl’s dad could say the same thing since her sister is a blue-eyed blonde! Keep reading and you’ll get to meet her too!
I love doing casual, relaxed lifestyle sessions in my client’s homes because I get to see their adorable nurseries and everyone is more at ease. Plus when it comes to siblings it is much easier to distract them in another room with their own toys! A lot of times not everyone is ready which is totally normal and totally fine.
I love to start with nursery detail photos and then move onto baby alone images! This gives Mom some extra time to get ready without feeling rushed. I’ll snag Dad and any siblings to add them to some photos and get a good variety. Then once Mom is ready we can get some beautiful family photos! After that I let Dad and siblings go off to play and I get to spend some time with just Mom and baby.
My goal is to capture the new relationships that have formed! Everything from a strong new Dad who has someone to protect to a caring new Mom who will be there always to hold them tight. Plus I love the silliness and laughter that comes from a new Big Brother or Sister! They are always so proud! This little girl has the best big sister and I know the two of them are going to be best friends!
