This time around for Maya’s newborn photos, I knew I wanted more lifestyle photos than the typical staged newborn photos like we did for Grayson. I wanted Grayson involved in the photos and our entire family, if possible. We ended up going with Hillary at HillaryLeahPhotography who was FANTASTIC! She was so down to earth and was very patient with our entire crazy family. Maya was only 3 days new and we had only been home for 2 days from the hospital when we took these. Phew! She didn’t poop once through the whole shoot (Grayson pooped like 3 times and all over the photographers blankets haha!) but I did have to nurse her halfway through and we bribed Grayson with a lot of fruit snacks. However, they turned out amazing, so it was totally worth it ;)
It’s been over a month since these were taken and it’s crazy to look back and see how much she’s changed already. How much her hair has grown and how chunky she’s gotten. Where did my 7lb baby go?! Time really is bittersweet.
I can’t wait to print some of these out and hang them in her nursery. There are a lot of them, so I hope you enjoy!
