Even though I’ve photographed hundreds of beautiful babes as an Austin newborn photographer I will never get use to how they are so truly small, precious and perfect. This little treasure is certainly no exception. She is so, so petite with the most beautiful features. She is definitely in the running for the best hair award and has the most amazing, creamy skin. Mom picked out the most delicate and elegant headbands, bonnets and outfits and they fit her perfectly. They are also some of the my favorites and I love how this session so beautifully came together.
I was honored to have photographed big sister as an austin newborn photographer as well and she was just as beautiful as baby sister. I love to not only capture sibling pictures but individual images of them as well. It’s so fun to see how they’ve grown and look back to see if they resemble baby sister or brother.
I get asked all the time how I get the babies to sleep so peacefully. While some babies are naturally more interested in sleep than others I do have a few tricks up my sleeve. I have three favorite products I use during my sessions. The first is the Baby Shusher. It has been called the “Soothing Sleep Miracle for Babies” and I do believe that is absolutely true! This little device makes a gentle shooshing sound that settles babies and helps to keep them in a quiet sleep. The second is a weighted swaddle blanket. I have found any kind of gentle pressure on the chest and sides of baby mimics the sensation of being held. The third is relatively new is called the Tranquillo Mat. This mat provides the reassurance of the womb by mimicking a mom’s heartbeat and motions through gentle vibrations and soft sounds. I never leave baby unattended, however, when using these products and you should follow all product directions regarding baby’s safety when they are in use. The links are copied below. Happy Napping!
