Leah and her Family||Watertown Newborn Photography

Hi friends! I'm feeling a bit giddy to share Miss Leah's newborn session with you.... partially, because, well, she is a perfect new little human (and I got to spend a good part of a day last week cooing and rocking her to sleep)..... set of two photos - newborn baby yawning and sleeping...and partially because I absolutely adore her family, who I met a few years ago when Leah's big sister had her own newborn session. toddler kissing her newborn sisterWhen I asked how big sister Vanessa was adapting to her new role, the answer was, "Fine! As long as we introduce Leah as *her* baby."toddler with a huge grin sitting on her parents bedLeah's momma wanted to make sure we created a really different look for this session than for Vanessa's, so we went with some bolder and brighter hues, including a favorite scarf of mine that we mcgyvered into a colorful swaddle. set of two photos awake newborn staring at the camera and parents gazing at their newborn babyThis momma of two worked hard (read: nursing gymnastics) to get us a snoozing Leah! We then got plenty of classic newborn portraits before she requested another snack break. set of three photos from newborn sessionLeah, at about 5 weeks, is considered an "older" newborn in the context of newborn photography, and while that means sleepy photos do tend to be more elusive, it also means I am usually able to capture more of little one's emerging personality. black and white photo of newborn awake and smirking at cameraSo there she is, all smirky and delightful, and I couldn't be more overjoyed to share these photos with her wonderful family. So happy for you four!

With so much love,
