Another sweet newborn baby girl just days old and very alert for her first official photo shoot. I met her parents a few years ago in my studio for a couples shoot. They are the couple who danced in my studio…one of my favorite couples studio sessions. I love being able to photograph new babies in their homes and especially in their unique nurseries. Here are some favorites…

I photographed the cover image for their Gold win in the Front Cover/Newsprint: Original Photo category. It was the Think Pink issue with Anne Meisner with her 2 very adorable boys, as story about an incredible breast cancer survivor.
Here are some of what the judges said: “Gold: BayStateParent; “October 2008”; Paula Monette Ethier, Paula Swift
“The clean, simple photograph will draw attention, and the triangle formed with the hands will keep viewers’ eyes in the photograph. The theme of the issue is clear because of the pink clothing and typography. Interior Photography (Original)”
Congratulations to the staff at Baystateparent!

I feel so lucky to have the opportunity to photograph all these new lives that have been born recently. Another beautiful baby girl just a few weeks old: she was so cute and cuddly during her session, and this yawn is so contagious. Mom had the best window decor and they were perfect for the session as natural backdrops. I think 2009 is going to be the year of the girl.
