I got to meet baby Juliana when she was only seven days old. This newborn little girl slept like a champ through most of her session and seemed to wake up just for some family photos. I love all the props and accessories I get to use when photographing newborn girls. I always encourage my clients to incorporate personal or sentimental items in their photos. Mom had a special blanket that was made by her sister-in-law we were able to use. Also, since this little girl was born right before Easter, we captured some adorable Easter images you will see below.
I can't tell you how many times I tell her to watch out for puddles. "Oh, don't step in that. You'll get your shoes wet!" And every time I see the quiet disappointment on her face, I flashback to my childhood. I remember that feeling. That urge to break the stillness of smooth water with one forceful smash of my foot.
So on this day I said, "Grab your boots, girl". Because sometimes, you need to bend routine. Sometimes you need to jump in puddles.
Besides, we have a giant puddle at the end of our driveway that was just begging to be jumped in.
The world is mud-luscious and puddle-wonderful....
