New: coming or occurring afresh; further; additional, fresh.

Post-edit to add: Check out little Emily's parent's company online here. Paul and I MUST have their loose tea every morning. So very delicious. A few of our favorites: Almond Biscotti, Chocolate Cake, and Lemon Chiffon. (They taste just as great as they sound!)

More of sweet new Emily, only two weeks old at the time of her session. And meet her sweet mother. Carolyn & crew, it was so nice to be able to spend a bit of time with you. Thanks for welcoming me and letting me into a piece of your memories.

And now, for the best part:

The progression of a newborn yawn.

Cutest toes.

Look at this rosebud mouth:

Welcome to this world, Emily Carol.

"If one feels the need of something grand, something infinite, something that makes one feel aware of God, one need not go far to find it. I think that I see something deeper, more infinite, more eternal than the ocean in the expression of the eyes of a little baby when it wakes in the morning and coos or laughs because it sees the sun shining on its cradle."

-Vincent van Gogh

Note regarding newborn sessions: I've had a number of inquiries from new or expectant mothers regarding scheduling photo sessions for their babies. The best time to schedule the session is between 7 and 14 days old. This allows for relaxed, pliable babies who "cooperate" well. Just ask Emily-- she was placid and enjoying every moment. :) At this stage, babies still sleep quite a bit, and that makes for some of the sweetest photos. I recommend scheduling before the baby's due, and then we can change the date/time as needed, but that way you are able to get a confirmed spot.
