Emilia’s Newborn Pictures

I could just take pictures of this baby girl all day long. (And I do…) I really wanted super simple newborn photos with lots of white and dreamy lighting. I ended up taking these myself in our guest bedroom, and I love how they turned out! I may have to do a lot more of these… [Read More]
