I had a new client this month, new to me and new to the world. At only 7 days she graced my Sarasota studio with her amazing presence.

Her parents; Lytle & Milca are experiencing the joy of a new baby and all that it comes with. Milca was recovering from her c-section when she came to me for baby Teal’s newborn session, she was clearly still in some pain but comforted by her very strong and tall hubby. He is very tall, (he literally had to duck when walking into my office and studio space). Lylte’s big hands held his tiny baby ever so gently. I am sure that Teal will always feel safe with her daddy near by.

It is no surprise that teal is the preferred color for this newborn baby session thus giving me a chance to use a chair I painted a while back in…you guessed it…teal.

Taking newborn baby pictures are so unpredictable, they can be easy or a bit challenging at times. I love each chance I get to photograph a newborn, they are only that tiny for such a short time. She was a pleasure to photograph, just as sweet asshe could be!!
