Look at those sweet lips! Little Emery was born last September and finally, after photographing her 6 month photos I decided I should show off these gems :)
Em's parents are two of the kindest people I know and make this "job" so incredibly easy. Their firstborn's newborn photos were the first "serious" newborn images I've ever taken - after doing a few shadowing shoots with a friend in Owatonna (Hi Hillary!), I felt like I could take those more stylized images too! And Meg + Sam totally trusted me, just passed off a few headbands and let me work with their 5 day old in their dining room (thankfully, the table and chair set hadn't arrived yet... thank you, hardwood floors!).
I focused on her newness - all the details, the small features, the perfect fingernails and of course, she even gave me a few smirks and smiles.
But my most favorite images? The ones of this new family of three! I loved seeing how Emery opened her eyes for the first time during the whole session when she heard her Mama's voice and her Daddy held her in one arm. SO sweet!
Stay tuned for later this week and you'll get to see the magic of the Internet - Emery will suddenly be 6 months old! <3
