On the 17th I had the joy of photographing 12 day-old Aalia. I think she is one of the most beautiful babies I've ever seen! She's tiny (under six pounds) and perfect. Aalia's parents are Aaron and Souheila -- you may remember them from this photo shoot I did with them in November. They are so proud of their baby girl, and they should be. She's darling!
We took these photos in Aaron and Sou's charming home, which was nearly empty because they were poised to move to the East Coast just a few days later. These portraits were definitely taken on Aalia's terms! There is nothing like a sleeping infant, but sometimes getting them into that state can be a challenge ;o)
Since they've moved away, I'm working with Aalia's parents long distance on creating a custom album and birth announcements for her. I'll share more later. Until then, enjoy these!
How cute is this -- she's blowing a bubble! She has a mouth just like a little rosebud. So adorable!
Here's the inside spread of Aalia's birth announcement (it folds down the middle). Since Souheila is French and Aaron also speaks native French, the announcement is bilingual.
