Miss Gigi – as I like to call her, was born on February 19th at 5:35 in the morning. Her ecstatic parents are some of my dearest friends, Lilly and Eric. Big sisters Ella and Anna must also be mentioned because I love them dearly. Anyway…Lilly and Eric have been trying for some time to have this miracle baby. Finally she is here! I was able to go visit her shortly after her arrival and snuggle her for a couple of days. She is beyond beautiful and sweet. Her big sisters immediately fell in love with her upon meeting her. So, here she is…isn’t she adorable?!
September’s theme: black and white. This is baby sweet baby Londyn.Check out the next photographer in the circle, Ms. Kyleene.
My latest project was a tiny princess crown that I will be using for this weekend’s newborn session with sweet baby Sella. It was so easy to make and looks perfect! I can’t wait to use it for during Sella’s newborn session.
Ribbon of your choice – mine came from Joann Fabric, $2/spool
Silver or gold metallic paint (or any paint you choose) – mine was metallic gold and came from Wal-Mart, $1.89
Fabric Stiffner – I used Aleene’s Stiffen Quik, $4 at Joann Fabric
Measuring tape, scissors, needle & thread, paint brush – had all these around the house
I cut a length of ribbon at 10″ (that seems like a good size for a newborn head). I then sprayed the fabric stiffner on the ribbon, coating both sides evenly. I did this over wax paper to keep the mess to a minimum. (Note: it took some time to dry.) Once the ribbon was dry, I thought it needed another coat. After applying the 2nd coat and letting it dry, it was ready to paint. I coated both sides evenly. I used a foam brush and dabbed the paint on lightly so I didn’t fill any of the small holes in with paint. After the paint was dry, I stitched the 2 ends together and it was finished.
In the works, a silver sparkly crown and 2 pink sparkly crowns for my own little princesses:)
Meet Isabelle Ann. She is two-weeks old and belongs to one of my best friends, Michelle. I have known Michelle for about 4 years. We used to live in the same duplex and I was there for the births of her 2 youngest daughters. She is a mommy to 3 girls now, Brooke almost 5, Layla 2, and Isabelle. In just a few weeks I will have the privilege of photographing all 3 beautiful sisters together! I had a great time photographing Isabelle….she didn’t cry once!! Once we got her nice and full, she finally went to sleep and that’s when the great shots emerged!
Enjoy, she is a total cutie!!
This über handsome little man is my nephew Dakota Allen born on January 7th . My sister Danielle’s first child and a total surprise, being she found out she was pregnant at 7 months! I had the privilege to take a trip to Indiana to snuggle him and to get my camera on him. I was so delighted with the results! Enjoy…
