6 Days of Perfection: They call her Piper Jane

Be prepared to say “ahhh” … it’s inevitable with this little 8.2 lb. six-day old! My sister-in-law gifted this portrait session to her daughter-in-law’s sister and husband. They recently celebrated their one year anniversary and now celebrate the birth of their first baby so double congratulations Molly and Jordan! It was such a joy watching them watch Piper. If Molly said it once, I’ll bet she said it 10 times … “oh Baby, you are soooo sweet” and other various romanticisms. It’s one of the most endearing and rewarding parts of photographing newborns — hearing and witnessing that perfect unconditional love that a mom and a dad have for their baby.

If these next photos don’t make you smile, I don’t know what will. New parents who simply can’t take their eyes off their new baby are so fun to watch (and even more fun to photograph). It is a remarkable thing for a parent to look at their baby and think “wow, me made that!” It is a wonder to behold, isn’t it? Who else but a loving God could weave all that DNA together and come up with those itty bitty parts that always form a little perfect person?!

Okay Jordan and Molly, let’s get at least one looking at the camera! 🙂 I adore you both. What amazing parents you are going to be and I loved spending a few hours with you. Congratulations again! Love, Mary

These are just priceless, Mary! I love each and every one of them, especially the one of Piper with that adorable little smile and the one where her parents are looking down adoringly at her. And the one on the scale is so sweet! Love the pink cap with the rosebud ties……..you really inspire me! I know several expectant moms; hope I can do some newborn pics of their little cherubs when they arrive (and, like you, wish I had an in-home studio!).

Thank you Cindy! Its always great to get an encouraging word from a fellow photographer! It’s always harder than I think it should be. Babies can be intimidating!

Oh my goodness – you did such a great job! Thank you so much, Mary! They are so beautiful – each made me smile more than the last 🙂

o my goodness Mary the pics are adorable. Molly & Jordan probably love them now but will love them even more as their little one grows so quickly. You did a wonderful job as usual. Do not even think about not sharing your talent. You’re the best. 🙂 Vickie

Oh, Mary, these are so very precious! You have captured Miss Piper beautifully and I love the pics of Molly, Jordan and Piper, too! Thank you so very much for capturing this special time in Piper’s life. These pictures will be treasured for years to come. I hope you will be available to take pics of each of my grandbabies! 🙂 Thank you so very much! DA

Thanks to both of you (DA and Vickie) for your sweet comments. She was the easiest so far in that she slept the best over the other babies as we moved her around. I think that she was only 6 days old was the key rather than waiting until they are two weeks. She was a doll and really gave me the bug to have two more of my own! I’ll really improve then and will be ready for Katie’s and Jacob’s baby! (Big smile inserted here.)

OH MY HELL. And to think you were worried they wouldn’t come out. I love you, but you gotta stop that you know. Time and time again you produce amazing pics. I loved the two that were your favorite also and if they were my kid- they’d be up in a 30×40. I better start saving…I have plans on buying one after you take our pics. Awesome job, again. Keep up the great work and STOP DOUBTING!!!

Love that red headed Mama, she is a STUNNER! No wonder that baby girl is so perfect!
