DANIELLE & ISLA
Isla's mommy and daddy were first in the studio as a part of my Rainbow Maternity Project (See more here). I was thrilled when Danielle told me she wanted to bring Isla back for her newborn photos. She is a very special miracle so we had to incorporate some rainbow baby elements into our session.
We were skeptical when we had our first positive pregnancy test. We had been trying for months to get pregnant and had a miscarriage in November.
This pregnancy was tough for me. I was sick the whole time. While it was challenging, I loved feeling movement. It was my very favorite thing about being pregnant!
The only food I craved was grilled cheese with ketchup.
I was very nervous to do my own makeup, as I am not typically one who wears it frequently, but I felt good about how my hair and makeup turned out. I also was nervous about how my pictures would look because I always thought I was “too big” to look pregnant. Angie and my husband got me to feel so beautiful that day and I love how my pictures turned out and would definitely do it again.
When she was born I cried “oh my God she’s so beautiful!” I couldn’t stop looking at her. I thought “she’s finally here, and she’s gorgeous!”
Isla was so cooperative and quiet throughout our session so it was easy for Angie to try new things and get multiple poses, which was so fun to see. I also loved that Angie incorporated a handmade blanket that Isla received from my Aunt. It made those pictures so special.
eed your baby right before and make sure you have things that are important to you in the pictures, like our blanket.
