My newborn photography session yesterday was in San Francisco, my favorite city in the World. It was of a beautiful little girl, Lilah, who was born on July 16, 2011 at 9:35am.
I took this shot from the back of the bed. There’s something so innocent and sweet about this moment captured.
Isn’t she just darling with her bent arm pose and girlie flower hat?!!
Best Place To Be
The best place to be is in the safe, warm and loving arms of her parents.
This piano was passed down from a few generations. I love the contrast between the old (the piano) and the new (baby Lilah)!
One of my favorite shots! This shot was taken in between sets.
Daddy was holding Lilah who had been crying from being naked and tired. (It’s tough being a model when you’re only 10 days old!)
Leeron made it look so easy with his gentle shhhh sound and foot rub… Lilah always stopped crying within seconds!
We thought of many interesting backdrops and had many fun baby props, but in the end, something simple can work just as well!
The lines from the wooden deck, glass door and sun/shade is what makes this shot visually interesting. And, of course, Lilah looks so sweet sleeping!
We actually put her here to get the next shot (see below right), but Lilah was so peaceful that I found another way to get this shot when Ramsey was no longer interested in sticking around. I love how it turned out!
