Special Delivery! | Saratoga Baby Photos

A few weeks ago, I had the privilege of doing a newborn baby photo session–it was very special because I had photographed the mom and dad’s wedding a few years before. I love it when my brides trust me with their precious little ones. When I found out that Libby would be visiting her grandmother I was really excited to meet her. Little Libby was only a few weeks old, but she was adorable! She was very alert and very, very smiley. It was a bonus that we had some very cool accessories to play with during the photo session.

We started out with an lace ecru dress against a beautiful quilt made by Libby’s grandmother, who is a master quilter. The colors were so complimentary to her skin tones and the dress she was wearing. I also liked the textures of the dress and the quilt.

So alert and serious.

From serious to hysterical. That is what I love most about working with babies.

I like to use black and white when photographing infants. It is so timeless and classic.

The flower on the headband is almost bigger than she is. I love making pictures of moms with their babies.
