Meet beautiful Dia, that came to see me for her newborn session! Most times, I get the newborn sessions done the very first time, but every now and then, it happens when for a reason or another, my newborn clients have a “false start” and we have to reschedule the session to another day. Out of my 7 year career, this has happened 5 times. Dia was one of of them and the second time I saw her, as with all of my reschedules, the session went SO well. She was as sleepy as she could be and was absolutely perfect. Her mom, who is the owner of Nicole Marie Salon, had the vision for the photo below since she found out that she was having a girl, and this photo ended up being one of my most talked about photo! People are obsessed with how cute Dia looks in it! I have to agree 😉 This was a difficult pose to create and she let me pose her without making a peep! She knew how much her mama wanted it, I say! I am so happy with how the session came together in the end, and Dia’s mom now has the photos she dreamed of so of her beautiful baby girl, and that’s all that counts! Mission accomplished 🙂 Congratulations to this amazing family of 4!

"Newborn Photography is my passion.
As a mother of three, I KNOW how important those first pictures are of your new baby. He/She is the most beautiful, and perfect being you ever laid your eyes on. You have never known a Love like this before. It is incredible.
This is the reason why I chose to photograph newborns. I strive to capture all of the Love you have for your new baby thru my lens, and to provide images that you will cherish for a lifetime of your newborn in the most adorable poses.
That is why I love what I do. There is no love in the world like the love one feels for their new baby.
I am a mother. I am a wife. I am passionate about my work and feel lucky and blessed every single day, to be able to do what I do."
