Despite my months of planning for Rylie’s newborn photo session, I was so focused on just getting Emmaline here that I didn’t give newborn photos much of a thought. But on Wednesday (4.11.18), I broke out my newborn props and picked up my DSLR to photograph our newest addition.
Since my mom was in town, she was kind enough to get some behind the scene photos on her phone so I could share them with y’all.
Since Emmaline is a Spring baby, I wanted to incorporate flowers into her shoot. Thankfully, I could easily do this by pulling the best ones from the bouquets I received at the hospital.
Since Aaron was home, we traded creative thoughts and I think it added a good variety to her shoot.
I don’t know what it is, but taking newborn photos for my own kids puts an extra pressure on me. I have a vision and I have to be careful to not get annoyed with myself when it doesn’t turn out exactly how I pictured it. But Emmaline’s newborn photos turned out wonderfully, and I can’t wait to share them with you guys.
