Oh my goodness I am loving these adorable newborn photos of Blaire! It’s double the cuteness with her big sister!! Matching flower crowns and laying in a circle of flowers, I’m not sure it can get any more cute! Well maybe down the road when another new sister comes along. 🙂 Larry and Ashley, you two have some super adorable girls for sure!
We’ve known this family for many years and they are some of our very best friends. I was of course excited when Ashley asked me about doing newborn/family photos after Blaire arrived. We started bouncing some ideas around for flowers and landed on doing fresh flower crowns and a flower circle for the girls to lay in for a few photos. I made the fresh flower crowns using floral wire, floral tape, hot glue (a woman’s version of duct tape, lol), wild rose buds and stock flowers. I’ve never purchased stock flowers before but not only did they work well for the crown, they also smelled AMAZING! I’ll have to get them more often! For the flower circle I just used a few different flower bouquets from Trader Joe’s and cut them down to smaller stems.
Blaire was a little over two weeks old for her session which is a little older than when I typically photograph newborns. She was a late arrival and I ended up being out of town right after she was born so we had to wait until I was back. We had to play by her rules and have lots of patience but even though things took a little longer I am so happy with how the session came out. After playing with the flowers we ended the session by going outside in their front yard just as the sun was setting. We had some beautiful warm light seeping through the trees and big sister Leighton managed to hold out for just long enough to give us some super cute smiles.
Congrats Larry & Ashley! Loved photographing Blaire and your new little family of four! Adorable!
