This cutie’s mother was catching a plane to Africa right after our newborn photo session but we still managed to get some beautiful pictures! I tried to implement some bright colors that would be mindful of her heritage and speak to her vibrant new future that awaits her here in America. I even got a little carried away and broke out one of my more elaborate props… my hand-made flower hat! I think it matches this lovely little newborn’s happy, hopeful face perfectly! Newborn photography is all about accumulating various keepsakes and baby trinkets that may come in handy in a photo session someday. Most all of the flowers and weaves you see the newborns wearing in my photos have natural and organic origins from right outside! I added some freshly picked roses and peonies to this exquisite baby headdress!
