Such a sweet, placid little girl-- so quiet and soft, new and beautiful. I love newborn sessions. It seems a bit silly to think that I can enjoy a job so thoroughly...

Meet sweet little Morgan- a tiny dark-haired girl with a bit of Irish in her. Yes, I am partial to Irish surnames. And though I won't share it here, suffice it to say she has a Gaelic last name that sounds lovely with her first. (A girl after my own heart.)

See? She's pretty happy about it. I was rather pleased to catch a teeny little grin:

While I rarely am able pick out a true favorite from each session, this is definitely mine from Morgan's. There is something about an infant yawn that does a mother's heart good:

Daddy came home to get in on the session. 'So glad he did, because I got to sneak this next image in when Morgan's parents were trying to get her changed. There's something about a parent's hands holding their firstborn that makes a heart happy.

Kelly, Ken and Morgan- Thank you for welcoming me into your home and trusting me with these priceless memories. You have a lovely little girseach. (You'll have to find a Gaelic dictionary for that one, Ken. :)

A note for expectant mothers: I've had a number of inquiries in regards to scheduling newborn sessions. The best time to photograph babies is between 7-14 days old. They are still sleepy and flexible, and will cooperate through pretty much anything. I recommend scheduling a tentative session before the baby arrives, approximately one week after your proposed due date. If things change, as they often do, I will still have availability to sneak you in somewhere after the baby arrives. For further questions, you may email me at: betsyphoto1@gmail.com

Thank you!
