We got to do Hatley’s in home newborn portraits a little earlier than expected, which is always fun! When I book newborn portraits, I always book them within the two week window of the due date. It’s so important to get the portraits done within the first two weeks to ensure the best outcome of newborn portraits. Past two weeks, they are more alert and it’s harder to make them sleep through anything. This makes those cute, cuddly sleeping newborn shots nearly impossible to get.
I was so glad that Ashley reached out to tell me that her sweet baby girl was coming early! I always feel like I am in on a secret. Not everyone on Facebook gets to be privy to information like “hey, I’m having my baby early”, but I do! 🙂
There were so many special touches to photograph here. Scott’s mom made a special blanket for Hatley that was in the nursery. Ashley also wanted pictures in these amazing velvet chairs she had in the living room. They were her grandmothers! I would have never guessed! They sure are timeless pieces! I love getting to photograph these special items for clients!
Towards the end of our session, Hatley was getting a little wiggly, making the last shot hard to get-but it’s always my favorite pose! Sometimes I have to ditch it, especially if the baby seems bothered and is crying or if the parents are sick of me working so hard for one shot. Ashley and Scott were so patient and helped me do all kinds of gymnastics to get the shot I needed! Thanks guys!
Ashley and Scott, you guys are already great parents! It was so awesome seeing you work together to take care of her needs. She is one lucky little girl, with one heck of a cute nursery! Can’t wait to share those photos, too!
