Today I'd like you to meet Brynlee (Bryn for short), the adorable daughter of Amanda and Rick. This little princess has been on Earth for almost a year already, yes I am a little behind on blogging, but this didn't stop her from being such a naturally beautiful baby. I absolutely had to take advantage of those good looks during this session.
Seriously -- her creamy skin tone, smooth complexion and natural glow make Brynlee a serious contender for pretty much any “cute baby contest” in the country! She still has that beautiful creamy skin tone too. You've seen her model our Christmas Minis not to long ago. ;)
Because I wanted to highlight baby Brynlee's good looks, I chose to keep props and background noise to a minimum. I did use the pink pearl layers from Hello Little Props to help enhance the natural beauty she already has, though!
As we went through the session and Amanda and I were chatting away, I was beyond blessed to find out our sweet little Bryn is a Rainbow Baby. A Rainbow Baby who is born after miscarriage, stillbirth, or neonatal death, gives us something beautiful after a scary and dark experience. The term rainbow baby may not be familiar to people who haven't experienced a loss. But to those who have, it has a very deep and life-changing significance. Although many people do not like to talk about their loss as it is something that is deeply personal, I am always here to have a shoulder and to lend an ear. I asked Amanda if we could do one set up to represent that Bryn was their miracle after their storm, Bryn was truly ready to be a fantastic example of what it means to be a light at the end of a dark tunnel.
One of Amanda's favorite parts of our session together was watching me work away. "I loved all the poses that you placed her in, and saw how passionate you were about your work. You informed me of every step of the way and what was going to happen.". Part of our job as newborn photographers is letting the parents know about the process. I like to not only have the parents next to me, for safety, but so they can see how things are done safely. Legs are at a certain angle, head isn't too far back or forward, communication when I will be taking baby and where I will be placing baby.
Amanda says that her experience exceeded her expectations! "I wasn't sure what to expect but I was extremely satisfied. I was nervous to get this done as I was not sure what to expect, but was very surprised as to how calming the environment was and how well my baby did.". She did well indeed!
Thank you so much C family for allowing me to capture such an incredible time in your lives!
Hello! I'm Michelle.
