Our daughter Kate had her first photo shoot at exactly one week old with Andrea Elberg, a photographer in Madison, WI. Andrea does on location shooting so she came to our house for the session which was so nice! She hauled in all her props, backdrops, and equipment and most of these shots were taken in our kitchen. Being a new mom and still not quite sure what to expect with a newborn, it was such a relief to be in the comfort of our own home where I already have everything I need for Kate. Andrea was so amazing with Kate that I couldn’t believe she’s not a mom herself! She was incredibly patient and didn’t mind taking as many breaks as Kate needed. And of course her end result speaks for itself! Maybe it’s in poor taste to gush about your own child, but I don’t care–I’m absolutely in love with these photos!
I got this adorable hand-crocheted hat from Etsy seller Irish Hooks & Yarn. It’s the perfect little accessory for a winter baby!
This beautiful hand-knit blanket was a gift from my friend Allison and was made by her mom:
