I was both thrilled and honored when my daughter’s teacher contacted me about doing a newborn photo session for her new grand baby! As a shower gift, she gave her daughter a gift certificate for my Baby’s First Year package. Each Tuesday when I would come in to volunteer in the classroom during March I’d get the “not yet” head shake, while her teacher waited excitedly to become a grandma.

Katy came home with the news on the 21st that Allison was being induced the next day! We scheduled her newborn session for the 26th, and I had the pleasure of meeting this beautiful family…

When I arrived, Catherine was sound asleep, and she stayed that way for nearly all 2 hours that I was there.

It was such a laidback newborn session. I was able to move her around and pose her without even a flicker of her eyes.

And with a mommy as beautiful as Allison, is it any wonder that Catherine is so gorgeous?

This is why it is so important to schedule a newborn session during those first 5 – 10 days! The baby is wonderfully sleepy and happy to curl up in little nests.

Jimmy was positively bursting with pride over his new little daughter, and was so attentive to both of the girls in his life.

Their two dogs were in crates right next to where I was taking pictures, but Catherine slept right on through their occasional whines and yips. And even when Jimmy let them out for a family photo, she kept on snoozing…

Dublin and Oakley were so happy to be a part of all the activity they’d been patiently observing.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Finally, after nearly two hours of pictures, she began to stir just a bit. This is one of my favorite photos from the entire session. It’s not posed, it doesn’t really show their faces, but it absolutely shows how a new baby is utterly absorbing… and how parents’ focus changes completely with a new baby’s arrival…

Hey! There are those little eyeballs that we haven’t see all morning! I am so looking forward to watching Catherine grow and change over the next year. Thank you so much for trusting me to document this time.
