Here is newborn sweetie Ava Grace at 7 days old.  She decided to come a week early, just like my own little lady, and was born with the sweetest face imaginable.  She was alert but very calm for our session and wanted to sleep only in mama’s arms.  The first photo is taken on a special blanket made by a loved one–those are usually my favorite backdrops.  I picture these babies as adults, with the photographs and the blankets, and sharing them with their own kids and grandkids!  You can see photos from Anna & Matt’s maternity session here.
