This sweet little lady is Adaline. She came to see this Paradise Valley Newborn Photographer for a newborn mini session. She had a head full or gorgeous dark hair that was softer than you can imagine and her beautiful olive skin was absolutely flawless. At just 10 days new, she was a pro at modeling. I didn’t think it was possible for her to get any cuter, but I dressed her in this adorable outfit from Jazzy Vintage Couture and my heart just melted. Then I put the flower bonnet and it was just pure bliss! Isn’t she just scrumptious?! She almost makes me want to have another baby…ALMOST! 😉
Adaline’s Aunt and I met through a photoshoot a few months back. Erika with Antunez Artistry is a very talented local makeup artist who I have had the pleasure of working with a few times now. She does absolutely beautiful work!! If you ever find yourself in need of any makeup services for a special night out or whatever your reason, you should definitely give her a call! When Erika’s niece was born, she was so sweet to send Adeline’s Mom and Dad to her favorite Paradise Valley Newborn Photographer, yours truly 😉 I love doing shoots for people I know. Even if it is someone I have never met in person, it still makes it fun if you know them through the grapevine. And I absolutely LOVE shooting for first time parents. It’s like they just can’t stop smiling. Their energy is really something special and of course Adaline’s Mom and Dad were beaming with that new parent glow. How could you not?? Look at that little love!!!
I love getting those detailed shots in my newborn sessions. Baby’s change so much in their first year of life. Their skin goes through so many changes along with it. I personally love the little ‘flakes’ or skin peeling on their tiny little hands and feet. From their tiny little nose to their delicate long eyelashes. It’s so important to document every tiny detail of your sweet new little one.
One last image to share with you all of this sweet girl. Adaline’s Daddy helped me out with this one to make sure that she was safe at all times. Dad’s hands were on her the ENTIRE time. This is a composite image using 2 images to create this final image. Safety is the absolute number one priority of this Paradise Valley Newborn Photographer. I will never risk the safety of an infant just to get a shot.
