Oh this sweet little baby Ava!  Before she was born, her Aunt contacted me wanting to gift a newborn session to her parents.  And what a lovely gift idea that is!  Ava’s parents are just as sweet as can be, and I loved having them in my studio in Wake Forest for Ava’s portraits!  Ava had her own ideas for the session, though!  🙂  Didn’t really want to sleep, but we made it work!  I REALLY love each and every one of the photos from her newborn session.  I mean, I am IN LOVE with them!  I can’t even choose a favorite.  Or two.  Or even three!  Before the session, her Mommy told me she loved soft colors – creams and pinks.  Thankfully I had no shortage there!  We share the same tastes, because they’re my favorites as well.  Ava is such a beautiful baby, and I’m so very happy she came to see me!  Here is a sampling of her gallery!
