Welcome, Anastasia! ~ Tacoma Newborn Photographer

I hope you all remember my good friends Scott and Kira.  They were the ones with the adorable rainy-day maternity shoot last fall... in case you need a refresher, you can view it here.  Anyway, as we were all buying goodies for our New Year's parties, these two were having a baby!

And that's where little Anastasia comes in.

I had the honor of photographing this sweet little lady at their home earlier this month when she was 5 weeks old.  Normally, I wouldn't consider 5 weeks a "newborn" shoot, but she was sleepy enough for most of our session that I was able to move her around and position her while she dozed, so that worked for me!

It was a joy to me to see Scott and Kira so very much in love with their little girl, and I know that was communicated in the shots I was able to get.  Towards the end of our shoot, Anastasia was growing rather tired of things (and probably annoyed with me, let's be honest), so Mommy and Daddy came to the rescue and held her for a while.  It was such a sweet time that I ended up taking many more photos than usual of the three of them together.  Consequently, these are some of my favorites from our session!

Scroll down and take a peek at Anastasia's "newborn" session- and just see if you don't fall in love with her, too!

Such a happy family!
I can never resist the detail shots.  Swirly baby hair, for example.

Anastasia's glamour shot.  She's already such a little beauty!

Love that sweet little nose!
Can you see the joy she brings them?  What a blessed family they are!

Getting love and snuggles from Mom and Dad.

There are few things sweeter and more peaceful than a sleeping baby.

There now.  Isn't she adorable?  I knew you'd agree.  ;)
