Welcome to the world, baby Nora Grace! Nora is the newest member of our family, and I was so excited to meet her for her newborn photography session. My niece, Melina, lives in Tampa, Florida, and I was got to travel there for baby's first professional photos. Nora’s theme for the nursery is pink, gray, cream and elephants; so I brought those colors with me for her pictures.
I photographed my baby niece when she was 16 days old, and my sister Mayra (grandmother or Mimi) was my assistant. I love photographing newborns between 7-21 days. I took most of the pictures using natural light, a first for me while photographing newborns.
Since I was also visiting with them, we had a more “relaxed”, longer photo session and waited to take pictures while she slept, which allowed us to capture some beautiful curled, sleepy poses.
I was excited to capture three generations of beautiful women - no doubt an image that baby Nora will cherish forever. Oh, what would I give to have a picture with my mom and grandmother!
It was such an honor for me to welcome and photograph the newest member of our family. Congratulations Melina and Jacob, you have such a beautiful baby girl. You know Mimi and Papi are sending their blessings from Heaven!
to document these fleeting moments and have them last forever in your images. Remember, the ideal time to book is a few months before your baby is born.
