Scottsdale Newborn Photographer
Sweet Baby Brinlee
I can not get enough of this sweet little girl. I was tickled to be included in her birth story. But now I'm even more tickled to be a part of her first year. I chuckled to myself when I thought that it wasn’t truly Brinlee’s inaugural time in the studio.
Of course, during the first photo shoot, she was in utero!
I was lucky enough to take Michelle’s pregnancy photos when she announced she was expecting. She dressed in a rainbow to signify she was carrying a rainbow baby. I also had the amazing opportunity to photograph Michelle's gorgeous belly again at a beautiful outdoor maternity session. So naturally, when baby Brinlee arrived for her newborn photos, we continued the theme.
This delicate little princess was such a great model. She slept so soundly nearly the entire session. I was hoping to see her beautiful eyes but we’ll just have to wait for her to be older!
I wanted to incorporate lots of different rainbow set ups into our photo shoot. Brinlee’s a miracle babe and deserves a magical welcome.
What is more magical than a gorgeous area of colors that magically appear in the sky after a storm?!
I dressed the sweetie in rainbow bloomers. I also wrapped her up in a rainbow-colored blanket and placed a dainty rainbow headband on her head.
Using the blanket as a starting point, I arranged some beautiful butterflies along the edge, since they can signify hope, new beginnings, and transcendence; a perfect metaphor for this moment.
Some of the most tender moments I saw through my lens were between Michelle and Brinlee as mom held her daughter, who was wrapped in a rainbow.
I also couldn’t wait to use different girly scenarios with baby Brinlee. I spent a lot of time surrounding her with just the right amount of lavender, before placing her in an adorable wheelbarrow.
I took some pictures with Brinlee wearing a custom-made hydrangea headband, and others with her donning a flower-adorned hat while curled up in a garden basket.
And not to outdo the aforementioned cuteness, I also added a pearl headband and a little bunny to the photo session.
This baby is such a beautiful little girl. She certainly takes after her mama.
