Newborn sessions... scare me. Will the baby scream at the sight of me? Will the parents be overprotective and not let me try anything? Will it pee on me?!!
Scary stuff, I tell you. UNLESS you know that the mother has been jumping up and down for this session for weeks. That the baby is beautiful and sweet and cuddly. That the parents will be super helpful and will want to try new things. Then it's not so scary...
Donna & Stan were precisely that. Fun! Excited! And Savannah? She was, well, perfect. PER.fect. And by perfect I mean that her lips did that perfect little downward curl and when she fell asleep she didn't stir no matter how much we flipped, molded, and cuddled her! And did i mention how incredible her bedroom was? Lavender. Everywhere. And since that's my favorite color, I spent a good twenty minutes oohing and ahhing and looking at my husband asking him, "Isn't this perfect?! Look how cute?! Can I have one?!" His face after that last question was hilarious and therefore prompted that question several times during the session!
Donna, Stan, yeah you two - THANK. YOU. And Congratulations. She's beautiful, sweet, perfect, and quite the talker. She is definitely your child and I know you are so proud! Thank you for giving me the opportunity to spend time with you and your special little one and I look forward to watching Savannah grow up into an adorable curly haired girl - just like her mama!
Meet the Russo family!
And here is Baby Savannah - She was wide awake in the beginning, which made for some funny photographs!
This photo was a challenge to take (I wasn't quite sure how to pose to get the effect I wanted) but it turned out perfect and has turned out to be my favorite from the entire session.
Thanks Donna & Stan!
