Zada Bea [Newborn]

Meet Zada Bea born January 2 weighing 8.2 pounds of sweetness. Her name was derived from both parents’ names — Zack and Danielle — with a touch of an older family one for her middle name. She was perfection, sleeping nearly the entire photo session and hardly making a peep. You’re going to see some pretty cute fingers and toes and fancy bows — none of which I get credit for! Her mom, dad, and our awesome God created the fingers and toes (and every ounce of love in between), and Zada’s Grandma and our florist friend, Stephanie Smith of Sweet Peas and Lace, created the gorgeous bows. I had envy written all over me. Zada is a princess in the making and destined to be the beauty her mom is. Her mom is a very talented Make-up Artist so if you don’t know her but need one, let me know and I’ll hook you up! Thank you for entrusting me to photograph Zada and I wish you and Zack all the joy in watching her grow. If I wasn’t already so excited about two grandbabies due in April, I sure am now!

Oh such a beautiful precious baby–and an adorable name. Congratulations Danielle and Zack. Mary, you did a beautiful job. You make photographing babies look easy though I know that truthfully they aren’t as easy as we “photographically challenged” might imagine. - January 26, 2012 - 9:37 PM

And they aren’t easy for me either … I have sooo much to learn! (But thanks for the sweet note nonetheless.)

Mary – I know you were a bit concerned because Zada was a little bit older than the newborns – but you did great – lovely pictures!

How do you capture such beautiful photos of these precious ones?? I love the photos of them sleeping, there is nothing like watching a baby sleep, so priceless and that’s what these are, priceless! Great job as always, you are creating such wonderful memories for these families, beautiful baby Zada, and a beautiful mommy too!
