Newborn Photographer Marin~Month Old Baby Girl

January 5, 2016

I had so much fun photographing this couple for their nautical-inspired maternity session that I just knew the lifestyle newborn session would be nothing short than magical. Hefty load to live up to, but baby Giana and her twinkle toes were fairy-dust magical. Well, she also had a little help from her furry family member who made sure to photobomb and steal the lime light. Oh, Petunia – you’re a snorting little fury ball of love.

Giana was a month old when her newborn session took place in home in Sausalito.  The mom’s parents flew in from South Africa so we scheduled it to include them. Grandparents with their grandbabies is something special, I was so happy they were here for the occasion. Grandma was a super sassy lil’ thing. I absolutely love the photo of grandma holding up Giana and cooing at her. It’s everything. Of course, I have a major soft spot for grandpas too. And this grandpa just settled right into the couch with Giana and was in the moment with her. It was super peaceful and so, well, grandpa-like.

Mama and dad are amazing new parents. Mom said she’s out hiking in the mornings with Giana strapped around her (Yup, you read that right). I didn’t hike or go to the gym for like a year after my son was born. She’s super-mom! Dad is off running their very successful wine import business. I’m pretty sure no one is sleeping but they’re all functioning at high octane levels. Maybe the air in Sausalito really is better?!

I should add that the star of the session was Giana herself. Little baby girl was asleep the entire time. Woke-up just to nurse a bit. But otherwise was a lump of squishy cuteness. One of my favorite photos is of her little toes, or little piggies as I like to say, peeking out from under the blanket while with mom. We spend so much time during their first year-ish with those feet saddled around to our waist that we sometimes forget how freakin’ cute it is!

Below are a few of my favorites from their session.
