Sorry I have been MIA the past few weeks. I had a good reason- I had a baby!! lol On June 5, 2014, I gave birth to a sweet baby girl. We named her Ashlynn.
For years I have dreamed about having a girl. I always found myself browsing the little girl section in a store when I should of been looking for clothing for my son. Let’s face it- girls clothes are so much cuter than boys clothes. I am such a girly girl so I just loved all the cute dresses, shoes and bows that were out there for girls.
The day after I got home from the hospital I was already out shopping for clothes for her. I was so excited the night before that I couldn’t sleep. I just wanted to get shopping! lol I also couldn’t wait to get her newborn pictures done as well. I had a folder on my desktop for months with examples of cute shots I liked that I had found online.
When I started to look on line for a newborn photographer I came across Melissa Yvonne Photography. Looking at her newborn images, I just fell in love with her style. It was exactly my taste. You can tell just from the images the attention to detail she put into every photo. I was probably on her site for about 15 mins and already knew I wanted her to do Ashlynn’s newborn pictures.
Here are some photos from our session:
Aren’t they amazing??!!
Melissa is so sweet. She made me feel so comfortable when I was in her home. She took her time with the session and she never made it feel rushed at all. Ashlynn was a bit fussy and didn’t want to sleep and I really started to stress out cause I didn’t think we were going to get any good pictures. Melissa reassured me that we would and she was right, I love all of them.
