Maren: Newborn 01.05.12

New year, new parents, new baby -- I like new! Especially when new includes an old friend from college. I went to Virginia Tech with both Lisa and Scott, and though I didn't know them too well, they saw photos I had done for some other mutual friends on my Facebook page, and voila! They booked me to do a newborn photo session for their precious new baby girl, Maren. I was really glad to reconnect with these two -- they are just awesome and so fun to be around. I am so happy for them, and I'm so excited to share a few favorites from our afternoon together at their beautiful home. Enjoy!

Meet 7-day old Maren. She is just gorgeous.

But it's easy to see where she gets it -- look at her beautiful Mommy...

And her handsome Daddy!

One with her adorable "big sister". LOVE!

In the beginning, I focused on getting some images of Maren by herself.

We did some with "sassy pants"...

Some in hats...

And some in nothing at all. Lisa and I agreed that newborns are best photographed "as is". The result is so angelic.

A different angle. I love newborn baby wrinkles.

And feet.

Next we moved on to some images with Mommy and Daddy.

Lisa, you look so peaceful and natural. Just beautiful.

Totally adore this one of Daddy and his sweet baby girl.

And this one of Maren's yawn.

And this one of her nursery! Gorgeous! I want to borrow this color scheme for my own girls!

At the very end of the session, we took a few pictures in their foyer. I loved the light coming in their front doors. And I just love how small Maren looks in these!

One of the whole family. Scott and Lisa, congratulations on your precious little Maren! I am so happy for you and so glad I could document these fleeting newborn moments. XOXO ~Kris
