Beautiful newborn baby Malia was carried into my studio by her stunning mom while sleeping peacefully in her car seat. She slept through most of her session, content to make little sounds when I adjusted her pose, throughout her dreams.

This gorgeous mom, Chanel, loves pinks, purples, and grays — as you can see! She also liked my vintage multi-colored blanket, and I was thrilled to use it for the first time!

You can see the incredible love in Chanel’s expression while she is holding little Malia. Mother-daughter photos are some of my favorite! I always tell clients that these photos are not necessarily for right now — they’re for the future! Do you have a beautiful photo of your mother holding you when you were a baby? Wouldn’t it be wonderful if you did have one?

Enjoy these gorgeous photos that will be a treasured family heirloom!
