Introducing Baby Louise: My DIY Newborn Photo Shoot

Introducing baby Louise.

My baby is adorable.  Especially when she sleeps.

Seriously, look how cute this sleeping baby is!

Sleeping babies are even cuter when they make funny faces.

The peaceful sleeping moments are the ones you’ll want to remember.  At least, they are the one I choose to remember.

She was at the stage where she mostly just tried to get her hands in her mouth, not always succeeding.  Also, I’m obsessed with the catchlights in this one.

And this one.  And her sweet little hair being all poofy.

Baby toes.  Baby feet.

Yes, I got a lot of beautiful ones of a nice, calm sleeping baby, but she did scream for a good portion of the photo shoot.  Totally worth it.  And yes, I’m keeping this one, too.  She’s even the most adorable baby when she’s crying.

Over the next few days, I’ll be posting some of my newborn photo tips, my birth announcement design, tips on creating your own, and my review of where I chose to print.  Stay tuned!
