From the moment I met Mabel she instantly melted my heart. She is the smallest newborn I’ve had the privilege of photographing, weighing in at just a little over five pounds. She was so teeny-tiny and so precious. She was absolutely perfect during her session. She slept almost the entire time and the brief moments when she was awake, she would sit quietly and look around, then slowly drift back to sleep. I can’t reiterate enough how perfect she was!
I knew where Mabel got all of her sweetness from as soon as I met her Mom, Michelle, and her Dad, Travis. They were such a fun couple to work with. They were just as mellow and go-with-the-flow as Mabel was. I had so much fun chatting with them while we moved Mabel around from basket to basket and changed out hair bowes and wraps. They are such an adorable little family indeed!
It was a beautiful spring afternoon on the day of Mabel’s Newborn Session, so we were able to step outside for a few minutes and I was able to photograph them for their first family portrait. These images are my favorite. Not only do we have Mabel, Michelle and Travis, but also Scotch, their Airedale Terrier dog. I believe that it’s not an official family portrait until the fur babies are in it too. Ha! You can tell how much Michelle and Travis love and adore their sweet baby girl in these images. Within seconds you can feel the love. They are very proud parents indeed. I love, not only they way they look at her, but they way they look at each other. There is a lot of love in this family and it’s very evident! It was truly an honor to capture these treasured moments for this incredible family!
I hope we will be seeing even more of Mabel in future, but until then here are just a few of my favorite images from her Newborn Session! I know you will enjoy them as much as I do. Enjoy and Happy Thursday!
