newborn girl allie | allie’s newborn photo session

Newborn girl Allie was just a week old at the time of her photo session, but she had cute expressions and poses down to a T already. It’s not easy to catch a smile from a little one this young, but she came through with several. This one’s a favorite of mine:


She looks so good in the soft colors of coral, buff and blush pink. Her mom loves girly headbands, so we had lots of fun looking through my collection for just the right ones to use with her. Lucky for us, she was happy to model lots of them! Her range of expressions is priceless- from totally out and chill to wide-eyed wonder to that little smirk. She is just the cutest thing!


Newborn girls are so much fun to use hats and wraps with, too, and she looked beautiful in this soft rose color. Like a lot of babies, she loved being swaddled, so the wraps worked perfectly for her…she got so relaxed and comfortable, and I love the way these poses look with a relaxed and happy baby.
