13 lbs. : Nampa Idaho newborn photographer

So here's what some breastmilk, lots of sleep and 93 days will do...

I love those chunky legs and bum. Notice that the bed is actually the same size in both shots. I love that I have this to see just how much she's grown. It's amazing to me that she's changed so much in such a short time. Love this little girl.

And here's a pullback of the second shot. My kitchen is where I take about 95% of my pictures. I used 53" white seamless paper and port-a-stand by savage. I got it at B&H for around $100. I got the dollbed on ebay a couple years ago, but the vendor is no longer making them, sorry. I used window light from my sliding glass door with a little fill light from a bounced flash. And I warmed up the bed before I stuck Stella on there with a nice warm heating pad (lower right corner). Oh, and I cranked the heat up in the house to around 79 degrees so it wasn't too chilly for her.

3 months old : Nampa Idaho baby photographer

The last 3 months have flown by. Stella has grown so much and is really fun lately. She's a feisty little thing and usually not super easy to photograph. But she's been good to her mama this last week.

One of my favorites.

I love her little finger nails here.

This is supposed to be a kitten hat, but I think she looks a little bit more like a viking in it. Still cute.

I love all her chub here.

I never got to use this when she was a newborn so I decided to give it a try before she was way too big for it. Yes, it looks a little like she's choking here but she wasn't. In fact, she loved it and she was perfectly safe every second she was in it.

Love you Stella.

Beautiful baby boy : Nampa Idaho newborn photographer

This little guy was so sweet and oh so fun to play with. He made me miss my Stella being so very tiny. Oh how I love newborns...

Her book came!

I spent countless hours putting Stella's newborn book together. It was worth it. I love it. It's 89 pages long so I can't share the whole thing, but here are several of my favorite layouts.

I'm so glad that's done and I can enjoy it!
