Floral Newborn Pictures

The Grooms family brought their sweet girl to meet me last week. Her beautiful Mama requested lots of floral to represent this little girl's two grandmothers. I ADORE a good floral, so I was happy to make that a reality for Annalice's session. We used a wreath, flower blanket, and a floral beanbag backdrop, almost everything had something floral to it! I thoroughly enjoyed designing every set up for this family.

Princess and the Pea Newborn Picture

Annalice's Mama had one other request, a Princess and the Pea set-up for her princess. With short notice, I didn't have time to order props, but her awesome family stepped in to make it happen. Grandma lent us a ton of antique quilts, and her Dad made the darling ladder. I'm so glad we were able to make it a reality; it couldn't be more beautiful!

Next, we moved on to one of my very favorite parts; the beanbag poses! This is where all the cute, squishy pictures happen. Sweet girl did not disappoint! She let me cuddle and pose her into the sweetest pictures.

Finally, I wanted to end with the Grooms first family portrait in my Knoxville studio! They are such a gorgeous family with two beautiful children! Enjoy!

I'm so excited to share some images from this sweet, baby girl's newborn session with me!

This little sweet pea came to see me at 5 days new and was a natural! We had a bit of a rocky start with accidents, a super long feeding, and a spit-up incident. Just a normal day in my studio ;).

Newborn photography is a beast all of it's own; it's so much more than snapping a cute picture of an adorable baby. It's taken me years to get to the point where I understand how to photograph these little cuties and how to keep them safe and happy during their session. An abundance of patience is critical for the perfect session. 

Irelynn's session was no exception, but with some patience and a bit of baby whispering, she was fast asleep, and a dream to work with! Her big sister was pretty fantastic too!! I was able to pose and mold her into the perfect positions for an overall awesome newborn session. 

I'm looking forward to meeting many more Knoxville, Tennessee newborns.
