While I was on holiday vacation, this little princess was born. And I was lucky enough to witness and capture her birth! Some of you probably saw a sneak peek of her birth on Facebook (I'll add a few at the end of this post for you, too) and I met with her again on New Year's Day for a newborn session. She was 10 days old, which is the oldest I photograph newborns and we found out exactly why. The sleepy baby you bring home from the hospital somehow turns into an alert, non-sleepy infant between 10-14 days. :D I did manage to soothe her to sleep for a little while, though, and snapped away as fast as I could. What a precious sweetheart!
And here is my favorite new birth shot from Michaela's first moment!
