Newborn Lifestyle Session with Family Pets

Baby Girl “Harper” Newborn Photos with Family Dogs.

When Elizabeth first mentioned she wanted to take newborn pictures, I immediately got super excited!  Taking newborn pictures is amazing by itself but taking newborn pictures of your friends’ first baby is even better!!  She reached out and asked if I could send her a gallery for her to look at.  Her response after viewing my gallery is probably my favorite thing anyone has said…

“I was sold when I saw the dog in one of the pictures lol!”

Yessss.  Fur Babies are ALWAYS welcome in my sessions!

And so the schedule was set to do pictures a few weeks later after her due date.  But what do you know?  This baby girl wanted to increase Earth’s population quickly and just like many other first borns, she wasn’t waiting any more.  Harper was born about two weeks early and gratefully mom and baby were just fine!  (I feel like due dates are kind of like the weather forecast… something you listen to and plan around but it is never really accurate.  Am  I right?!)

Thankfully, my schedule isn’t too crazy right now so moving the session earlier just meant I could see this itty bitty baby sooner! And when I say itty bitty, that is what she was!  Harper was so little and oh so cute!  I had the best time spending a few hours with Elizabeth, Mike, Harper and their two pitbull pups, Zucca and Bastian, who love their little sister.  Can it get any cuter than fur babies and little newborn babies?!  Nope.  I hope you all enjoy looking at these sweet newborn lifestyle pictures as much as I loved capturing these moments of sweet Harper.

Cheers friends! —  Missy
