It was no question, Baby Emma was going to be a stunning little Lady when she finally made her arrival. After taking her mom’s maternity photos on the beach in Half Moon Bay, I knew she would be just as photogenic. And oh the sweet goodness, was she ever! No disappointment there. What a little angel.
As I love (and recommend) doing, we planned her mom’s maternity photo session months in advance, so it goes without saying, we had everything lined up for her newborn session also. Being planned so far in advance, her newborn photo session was much anticipated.
There was no missing this sweet girl’s photo debut, but you can never REALLY plan for all the cuteness when the time actually comes. She was so content. As all my new parents tend to find out, their new little bundle will direct their newborn session. Sweet Emma decided when she was ready, and when she needed a snack break. Easy.
We spent a good amount of time together during their maternity session and I could tell right off, that her dad was such a sweet and loving husband and that he was going to be SUCH a good dad. Yep. Emma had her Daddy wrapped around his finger before day one, and boy, is he ever in trouble! She clearly inherited her momma’s lips. Can we just go ahead and imagine she’ll get her dad’s sea blue eyes also! Just woah. What a beautiful, photogenic family! Is it too soon to say I already look forward to photographing the three of them again?!
An incredibly fun and unique detail about Baby Emma is that her dad is from Canada and her mom is from Peru. SO, it was only appropriate their sweet girl should be born on the 4th of July, here in the United States! Of course, we had to capture that in a fun photo. I expect this gal will be doing some traveling in her future! I love incorporating meaningful details like this in each of my families photo sessions.
