How was everyone’s weekend?! Mine was fabulous, I didn’t do something “out of the box” like I wanted to but that’s ok I’ll try again next week 😉
Last week I did a post on my best friend Stephanie who just gave birth to a beautiful baby girl name Samiya Rose Banks, that Sunday my other best friend Shannon and I hit the road and went to see our god baby. She was crying when we came into the room and Shannon beat me to her (no surprise, Shannon is a monster when it comes to baby Rose; she don’t play) and she held her and kissed her as I chatted with the new mommy about child birth, diapers and sleep! Lol! After she was released from the hospital Shannon and I went on the hunt for props, we went everywhere from TJ Maxx to Ross and then we found the Michael’s! *insert happy dance* Shannon was in charge of headbands I was in charge of props for the photos. After finding everything we needed and then some we went to see mommy and baby Sammy and set up for the shoot! This was my first official newborn shoot and although I was extremely excited I was also extremely nervous, so many things can go wrong and I was afraid something might happen. I made sure I did plenty of research and had everything I needed; heaters, soft pillows, plenty of hands on help and Sammy was stuffed and sleepy, nice. We dressed Sammy diamonds and pearls and she looked right at home…. here are the photos from my first newborn shoot, enjoy!!
I’d like to take the time out to thank Stephanie for trusting me with your daughter & Shannon for the headbands and helping hands, I wouldn’t have been able to do it without you ladies!
PS some of the photos are duplicates that are black and white, so your not going crazy you do see double! Lol!
