Lily | Newborn

Of course I'm partial to little girls with flower names, but this newborn was so sweet and perfect during her photoshoot.

We sent Grandma to the store to get some fresh lily flowers.

Grandma also came home with a head of cabbage and the idea that we should put the baby in the center to show how little she is (she was a preemie weighing in at 5 lbs).

At first I wasn't so sure--I'm not trying to push Anne Geddes out of her slot as #1 creative newborn poser...

...but Lily totally rocked the photoshoot and was a true model. I think she's adorable enough to sell a burlap sack to Nordstroms--so a head of cabbage was no problem for her!

While I was editing her photos, I kept myself entertained by thinking of cheesy birth announcements to go along with her cabbage patch theme. How 'bout this one:

See how little she is compared to these books?

This was a fun photoshoot. Lily is cousins with Brooklyn. So all the aunties were there, and one of the aunties had some studio lighting she just bought off eBay. We set it up and gave it a go--here's a pull back shot. Maybe I do have studio photography in my future someday?

(notice how teeny Lily is on the ottoman!)
