I just couldn't pick 10 favorite images of the newborns I photographed in 2011. I seriously could have chosen at least one from each of the adorable babies. So, I went through and picked a variety of images that showed some of my favorite hats, headbands, baskets, props, and sweet babies that melted my heart this year. I know I keep saying this, but I truly feel honored every time someone chooses me to photograph their newborn. They come to me when their precious new child is only days old and trust me to snuggle, soothe, and pose their baby to capture this fleeting time. That is a huge thing, and having had two babies of my own, I especially appreciate their trust and love of my work.
