The Stilley Family is very popular, not only in the Steph Layne Photography world, but also the Steph Layne world. I love this family so much! I've been so excited for Savannah's arrival from the moment that Whitney and Jimmy told me they were expecting another baby girl. Newborn Sessions are always exciting because you never know when the little one will arrive. It might be right on their due date or even a week late. However, in Savannah's case she was early. When I received a message from Jimmy stating that their baby girl was here, I was so surprised because she was two weeks early. I had just posted their Maternity Session blog post and within seventy-two hours Savannah was here. As they related the events of that evening, they were a little surprised about her early arrival, but nonetheless they were ecstatic to meet her and make their family of four complete.
It's easy to say that Whitney and Jimmy have the sweetest daughters. I can't believe how much Savannah looks like her big sister, Sadie. I had the privilege of photographing Sadie when she was just a few days old too. Countless times during this session, I would turn to Whitney and tell her how much these two look alike. She would laugh and admit that her and Jimmy have said the same thing. They are both beautiful little girls. Whitney saved a few items from Sadie's Newborn Session and we were able to photograph Savannah in the same outfits. I love these images so much, not only because of how precious Savannah is, but also the special meaning behind these outfits.
Everyone did such a wonderful job that afternoon. Savannah was wide-awake in the beginning, but slowly drifted off to sleep during her session. The way the entire family looks and smiles at her is so heartwarming. You can tell that everyone is so proud of Savannah. There is a lot of love in this blog post and it makes me very happy. I'm excited to share just a few of my favorite images from Savannah's Newborn Session. I know that you will enjoy them as much as I have. Enjoy and Happy Thursday!
