Every baby has their own story about how they came into the world. Some are surprise blessings that pop into their parents’ lives to change them forever. Others have an extended journey before finally joining the parents who have waited for them for so long.
Liana’s parents had been preparing for her for so long, praying for a new baby and a sibling for their wonderful son, and Liana did not disappoint. They didn’t know they were having a girl until she was born, and they were absolutely thrilled to welcome her to the family! To celebrate, we set out to create newborn photographs of an answered prayer.
For Liana’s newborn portraits, we wanted to capture just how loved and precious she is. Mom and Dad were excited to embrace Liana’s girly side with all kinds of flowers and frills, and little Liana settled into these sets and backgrounds so well! Laying on a bed of flowers makes her look like the beautiful princess that she truly is.
We also wanted to be sure to honor the faith that brought Liana to her new family. The portrait of Liana resting on the Bible, open to a passage in Samuel that reads, “For this child, I have prayed and the Lord has granted the desires of my heart,” holds a special significance for the whole family.
While one of our goals for the session was to capture Liana’s family’s outpouring of love for their baby girl, that love comes through most clearly in the portraits of the entire family together. Mom and Dad look overjoyed to be cradling their baby girl, and Liana’s ten-year-old big brother has the sweetest smile as he holds his little sister. It’s clear that they were all meant to be together!
If you have a new baby to celebrate, I would be honored to help you preserve the memories of this unique and special time in their life. Contact my newborn photography studio today to schedule your session.
