Introducing Baby Peyton Ruby!

Ladies and gentlemen, today I have the distinct honor of introducing you to baby Peyton Ruby, who's officially 9 days new!

Congratulations Chris and Samantha! I was so delighted to share in the joy of celebrating the arrival of this new baby girl. We had a handful of newborn sessions last year, but this was our first one for 2014 & our first time with a little girl!

As you can see from the pictures below, Miss Peyton and I had one of the best sessions together. Her mom, Samantha, prepared for the shoot by making sure their home was warm and cozy, along with applying lots of baby lotion to Peyton’s beautiful skin to keep her from getting too dry. It was hard for me to tell who was glowing more, Mama or baby!

We also made sure baby’s tummy was full and paused throughout the session for feedings. All of these preparation efforts allowed us to have an especially awesome shoot together.

Peyton slept most of the way through the three-hour session. And when she wasn’t sleeping, Peyton was very calm and relaxed. She certainly enjoyed being all snug in our cream stretch wrap. We purchased this one from Beautiful Photo Props and plan to add several more wraps, hats and headbands to our inventory this year.

“It was wonderful!” says Samantha. “I was nervous about her crying, but it all worked out!”

Because the shoot went so well, I asked Samantha if she would share one helpful piece of advice with other mothers planning a newborn session:

“Change baby’s clothes while your photographer is getting everything set up. It was easier because baby can go back to sleep!”

This session was special because I had a new prop I have wanted to try out.

And, it goes without saying, I was really excited to have such a sweet baby girl to model our antique baby scale. Peyton was radiating with cuteness before, but the colors of this set really helped bring out the soft tone of her skin. I'll definitely be using this again in future sessions. (I also have a white one that’s perfect for a new baby boy!)
