Ruby • Newborn Sneak Peek!

This sweet pea was born to a wonderful family that I know well. As soon as I heard she was growing strong in Mommy’s belly and that they wanted me to photograph her newborn photos, I couldn’t wait for her to arrive to capture her cuteness!

Ruby is the daughter of one of my very good friends and I simply loved taking these photos. When I arrived at the session I had a few gifts in hand. Some were for Mom and Dad, some for big brothers, and of course some for Ruby. As you can see if you look closely, the gifts that I gave the boys made it into our photos. I didn’t plan that timing very well, did I? Either way, her busy big brothers slowed long enough for me to take a couple of photos of them with their baby sister. So sweet!

After photos with her big brothers, we took a few family photos before the boys headed outside to play. Of course the new toy cars stayed firmly in big brothers’ hands for photos and for outside play time!

Next we captured some photos with Mom and Dad. Compared to the last time I was at this house photographing newborn twins, things were simple and relaxed. Mom and Dad were both tired as expected, but were relaxing and enjoying the session snuggling with their new baby girl.

Lastly, we moved on to photographing Ruby by herself. We started with photos of her swaddled on white sheets, then unwrapped her and captured her hands, feet, and other newborn baby features.

Next we placed her in a basket for some close shots and also wide basket shots. We changed out her blanket and hat at one point, and she stayed settled and snuggly, just perfect!

Ruby and her family did a fantastic job for their session. I was honored to take her first photos, and the first photos of her with her family.

Thank you for asking me to capture these precious moments!
