Beautiful Cecilia was “breaking my heart” during this Hixson TN newborn photography session. I had the joy of photographing her parents, Lane and Elena, for a maternity session before Cecilia made her appearance. It’s simply magical to watch a couple transition for the excited anticipation of pregnancy to the joyful, exhausted thrill of new parenthood.
Even though she had not slept well the night before our session, Cecilia was a perfect little model baby. She stayed alert and calm through much of our session, even letting me position her for her first official tummy time (the OT in me just couldn’t resist and it’s such a sweet little position for portraits). I loved watching Elena and Lane interact with her. They probably didn’t even realize it, but they showered her with kisses and snuggles unconsciously. Lane’s interaction with baby Cecilia reminded me a lot of the way my husband treats my girls; always nuzzling, tickling, and playing with them. I can already tell he’s going to be one of her favorite playmates for years to come. Cecilia is absolutely cherished by both her parents.
Here are some of my favorite shots from this Hixson TN newborn photography session. I do love photographing newborn and maternity sessions. For more information about booking a session with me, click here.
