Laura hired me to be her daughter’s Seattle newborn photographer. She brought me her beautiful baby daughter and let me hold and snuggle her all morning while I worked to take some beautiful baby portraits of her. My very favorite image from Hazel’s newborn session is the on of her wide awake looking right at me. Hazel was awake and alert for most of her newborn photography session. She has the most dainty little girl features. I’m glad I was able to get some images of her with her eyes open because they really just light up her perfect little face. Another reason I love that one image in particularly is that it really features the highlights Hazel has in her hair. I swear to you I didn’t do a single thing to augment those perfect highlights in photoshop. They are the real deal. It’s like she spent hundreds of dollars on the perfect color job at a posh salon! She has the most amazing golden tones in the head full of hair. Her mom and I are both thinking that being a blondie is in this little lady’s future. I am really hoping, crossing my fingers, that I get to see little miss Hazel back in my studio for a sitting and birthday portrait session so that I can see how she grows and changes from a perfectly sweet newborn to an adorably cute toddler!
