I had the pleasure to photograph baby Nylah for her newborn baby photos in my home studio located in Sandy Springs / Dunwoody, Ga. Tayla contacted me when baby Nylah was already almost 3 weeks old and I happened to have availability the same week. She was 24 days old when we did her newborn baby photos.
Nylah was born full term but weight only 4lbs 15 oz. When I photographed her at 24 days, she was at 5lbs, but a very strong and alert beautiful girl packed in that small body.
I loved getting to know mom during our photo session and learned that Tayla is a track and field athlete and will be participating in the Olympics. She is originally from Nassau, Bahamas and will be representing the Bahamas in the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo. She will be getting back to training soon but of course, looks like she has never stopped.
Being the daughter of athletes (dad is also a runner), Nylah is not only petite but also strong, alert with a beautiful and energetic personality. I loved being able to capture her in those perfectly peaceful sleepy poses as well as wide-awake shots, and she gave me excellent eye contact.
My favorite image of the photo session was baby in mom's hands, so strong and delicate at same time.
