When Ayala’s mom told me that she loves the pose where the baby’s chin is on their crossed arms, my heart sung! This is my favorite newborn photography pose! I think it’s super adorable, and it shows the newborn baby with their head upright, and we can see all the facial features.

I love how Ayala pursed her lips in the photo with the purple props! She looks like she’s about to blow a kiss or two!

Since I have three sons and then a daughter, I believe in pinks and purples for all girls! So I felt excited that Mom wanted to use neutrals along with feminine colors!

Little princess Ayala was a dream throughout her session, and I hardly saw her eyes open at all. She slept comfortably, and moved from one setup to another with ease.

Enjoy these adorable photos of Ayala!
