This little bundle is the much-anticpated newborn daughter of some dear friends. She is a breathtaking little baby and she is growing fast. I had the chance to snuggle with her for her newborn portraits at just 10 days old, and I loved every minute of the time spent cuddling her in her mommy and daddy’s downtown Cincinnati loft. She is such a lucky little girl to grow up with such loving parents.

Sleep was not on the agenda for little Madison, but we made it work. The girl already likes to wear pretty clothes. When we stripped her down, she screamed! But we worked through it, and honestly I love the open-eyed newborn pictures just as much as I do the sleepy ones.

I see little Madison every week, as her parents are part of our wonderful church family at one of the most welcoming, tight-knit places of worship I have ever attended. And so I’ve been watching her grow (and will continue to watch her grow) and I must say, I’ve never seen a newborn change so quickly! I photographed her on a Wednesday, saw her following week, and when I went back to the newborn pictures I was amazed – She barely looked like the same baby. The thing that stayed the same – she was and is absolutely beautiful, just like her mother.

Thank you for inviting me into your home and allowing me to spend a few precious hours with your sweet little girl. And I’m glad she finally conked out for us and let us girly her up with hair bows and a tutu. 😉
