I've known Evelyn's mom for several years now - she has babysat my own children, and has worked as an amazing nanny the past few years as well. To see her grow into a mother herself now is absolutely heartwarming.
Spring in Escanaba is usually slow to arrive, but this year the snow seems to have melted (and stayed away!) earlier than normal. All this spring fever is making me break away from my love of neutrals and crave pastels - soft pink and sage green have my heart right now. I also have been playing with a new knitting machine which has been great fun and is allowing me to grow my prop collection. Of course, I had made 3 purple knit wraps on it, and Evelyn's mom requested no purple - so the night before their session I whipped up the pink one, along with a matching bonnet, that you will see below.
Evelyn was a little darling at her session, waking up briefly and allowing me to capture a couple of awake shots, and also allowing me the chance to feed her a bottle before she drifted off back to sleep. Snuggling, feeding, and rocking a little baby are things that I miss greatly as my own two children grow, and is one of the things I love most about being a newborn photographer.
