Albuquerque Newborn Photography of Baby Genevieve - The Best Sleeper I've EVER Worked With!

Meet Baby Genevieve - Newborn Photography by Albuquerque Photographer Ell Photography

How precious are newborn baby smiles!?!  Meet Baby Genevieve!
I originally met Jackie and Harley back in September for an awesome maternity photography session in the Albuquerque bosque right when all the sunflowers were blooming.  Well, now they are back for their new little bundle of joy's newborn photography session!!  I found out that Jackie was decorating the nursery with vintage Winnie the Pooh - which reminded me of one of my favorite quotes:
"Sometimes the smallest things take up the most room in your heart" - Pooh Bear
Jackie even brought over vintage Tigger and Piglet - all we were missing was Pooh!

When they first arrived, Genevieve was dead asleep after "partying" all night long :P so we decided to get a little adventurous and try the "baby hanging in a scarf" photo.  I've tried this a few times before, but there's not too many babies that stay asleep for the full process of getting them up there.  It took a few times, but the third time was a charm, and Newborn Baby Genevieve stayed perfectly asleep as mom swaddled her, dad held up her head, and I tied the scarf decoratively around the Aspen branch.  (Please note this is a composite photo and she was never actually hanging there all by herself.) Plus she was over a huge cushy cusion just in case! 

Jackie liked the color version with the pink backdrop the best (and used it for Baby Genevieve's Newborn Birth Announcements which turned out really cute).  I think I like the Black and White version though.  Nambe actually is using the Black and white version of the photo in a big beautiful frame at their local Paseo and Wyoming store.  (P.S. Shameless plug - now that I am partners with Nambe - all my clients get a 10% off coupon!!! All the more reason to book a fun family photo shoot for your Christmas cards so you can use the coupon for your holiday shopping!)

Harley is a pilot at Kirtland Airforce Base and he came up with the awesome idea of taking newborn pictures of Baby G in his arms wearing his flight suit.  He is such a  sweet Dad, I just love these photos!!  They melt my heart!

Jackie is such a great mother too!!  There is so much love in this brand new little family!  I had ordered some cute little headbands from Etsy and they came in just in time for Baby G's newborn photo session which was perfect because then Jackie and Genevieve matched!

Such a  sweet sleeping baby!!!
