Over a month ago I took maternity photographs for a couple who have since become friends of ours. This was their first child and they did not want to find out the sex of their baby. On July 29 they welcomed 5.6 pound newborn baby girl into their family. The first thought that went through their minds? “It’s a Girl!!!” They named her Ayla Elizabeth. When I asked Ashley how they chose her name, she told me that they chose “A” for the first name to represent Ashley and “E” for the middle name to represent Elijah. I love how they have meaning in so many little details.
When I asked Ashley what the best part of being a new parent is, she said that “she loves the sweet smiles Ayla gives her and Elijah once in a while. They make getting up in the middle of the night worth it.”
Ayla was 10 days new for our session. S was so small and slept so well during the first half of our session. After that, she woke up but I do love seeing her little eyes and capturing her natural movements. Ashely had found this beautiful carriage, and when I saw their backyard I knew that was going to be a perfect spot to photograph Ayla. And it we even got a little smile out of Ayla in the carriage. I am so in love with this session!
