Below are some of my favorite pictures from Kathleen's 6 day old newborn photo shoot. We took her to see Tracy who owns Memories by TLC for our first family outing. It was so much fun and Tracy was amazing to watch as she worked with Kathleen to get her to pose so beautifully. The studio and office where she works are in two of the upstairs rooms of her home. This set up makes you feel comfortable as soon as you walk in the door with your newborn. Tracy keeps it 90 degrees in the studio with a heater so that the baby is cozy and sleepy throughout the session. With a handful of other baby calming tricks up her sleeve, Kathleen was incredibly happy to be there soaking up all of Tracy's attention. It was so impressive we even took a home video of how a couple of the poses came together. (I'll be adding an edited clip to this post a little later on.)
As a proud Mommy, I have to brag that Tracy loved Kathleen's sweet, "mellow" attitude so much she asked if we could come back the following Monday for some additional modeling shots. That's right - my little girl was asked to come back so the photographer could try out a couple new poses, props and fabrics on her!
