We were going to get maternity photos of Laurel's mom, but whoops we missed. That happens a lot... the best maternity photos I think are when the belly is the biggest and sometimes the baby comes before the photos!
But I met Laurel when she was just three weeks old and we had a great shoot at their home in Breckenridge. We had to work around the oxygen as many babies here at 9,500 feet have to have oxygen in their first few weeks of life. But I thought her newborn shoot was wonderful!

And a few of my favorites:
And as most newborn shoots - I feel like we got better photos with dad and Laurel than we did with mom. Both parents are adorable, but sometimes babies just relax more with their dad's - no reminders of lunchtime or feeding. Just relaxation. Ahhhhhhh...
and these photos remind me why I like to photograph babies in their own space... the natural light in her eyes... and everyone is comfortable!
