Makayla Lynn - {Alaina Nunez} Whittier Newborn Photographer

Their baby girl is here! Little Makayla Lynn! You might remember Amy's maternity session that I posted about here. You also might remember that Amy and I have been friend's since Jr high school so I'm always excited to hear when my childhood friends are having children (friends for my kids!). 

Makayla was awake at the beginning of her session but after a couple nursing breaks she was out. She was even still asleep when I left.

Such a sweet little angel baby!

Purdy little lips

I loved the way she was holding her feet while I was getting the ring shots. 

I think she was having some lovely dreams.

She smiled for her Mama! 


"Oh Daddy, you're so funny!"

Drew wrote a poem for his baby girl that I think is so sweet. 

We thought our life was complete, until you showed up with those small little feet.
Our hearts we thought fulfilled, then you showed up and we were thrilled.
Your eyes so light and as big as the moon, your smile so bright it lights up the room.
Your nose so round and eyes so blue, your toes surround our love for you.
So sweet and so small, there is no feat that we can recall, that we won't go through for you,
Daughter, Mommy & Daddy love you!
J.D. Maxwell

Joseph is super excited about having a baby sister but like most 2 year olds', he's still trying to figure out why this playdate buddy hasn't left yet. 

Whatcha guys doing?

Kiss for Mommy...

Kiss for Daddy...

and kiss for Makayla!

And one more kiss for sister because she's just so kissable! 

These two will be running around together before we know it! I can just see Joseph acting silly and Makayla getting a kick out of her big brother because she'll think he's the best thing in the world. Yep, homemade buddies!

Thanks Maxwell's for having me over and letting me capture your baby girl's tiny little features and your family memories with my camera!

Miss Everly - Newborn Session

Meet Miss Everly!

Baby #3 and 2nd little girl of the family, she's already opinionated and super aware of her surroundings.
She did not like her feet or arms tucked in. Whenever I would try to wrap her she would totally stretch and complain. I told her I got it, she already left her cramped quarters and needs to stretch any chance she gets. :)

I hear you!

Everly wasn't going to sleep in the basket that I had all soft and cozy for her so her mama got her dressed and soothed her and then she was out. Look at this beautiful peaceful face!

Big yawn!
"Wow that was hard work!"
I love that those were 3 consecutive shots.
Adoring big brother...
Mom checking dad's job on hair
I really love this shot and the story it tells. :)

Updated family photo!

Kaiden is such a sweet little guy (big brother). He told me right when I got there that he was going to hold Everly for some pictures. :)

I think some of my favorite shots to take are of the mama with her newborn. Maybe it's because the mom still has that "pregnancy" glow, or because of the joy she feels after carrying her baby for 9 months and now finally able to hold her long awaited gift in her arms.

This face... She's just so precious!

So sweet!
 Since Everly was pretty out we decided to take a few more shot of just her in her darling little outfit.

 Doesn't she have the daintiest fingers.

Those lips!

Right after this shot her eyes popped open and she had this looked like, "time's up lady!" haha
Sweet baby girl!
Thank you Hart family for letting me spend the morning with you and cuddle you baby girl!
