McKinley May

I know, I have been super bad about the blog but I just couldn’t keep McKinley May all to myself, I had to share! My good friends and neighbors were sweet enough to let me get to know and photograph their baby daughter this past week. I had so much fun trying out a few new props and concepts I have been working on. Here are the results…

Newborn Baby In Army HelmetI thought this shot was especially fitting for this Memorial Day weekend. McKinley’s Daddy brought out his helmet and boots for his new little lady. Who doesn’t love a sweet soft newborn baby with Daddy’s military gear…love it!Newborn Baby In Gerber CrateThis Gerber crate is a newly acquired prop from the Rose Bowl Swap meet. This little girl is definitely a “Gerber Baby”, so adorable!Newborn Baby On Iron Doll BedI usually photograph this bed with the princess and the pea blankets which I love but this more simplified version was really beautiful!Newborn Baby On SwingOk so drumroll…I have been drilling holes, staining wood, and clamping rope for a couple of weeks now and have made 3 of these swings. This was my first test and I love the result. McKinley was the perfect model and didn’t budge up there, she was wonderful! I even got to put a new material behind her…love my dandelions! Newborn Baby PosingAfter all of the fun sets and backdrops, it was nice to finish it off with some  simple, timeless, and gorgeous shots of McKinley in all her sweetness. Who doesn’t love these poses: the tushie, taco, side and the beloved frog pose”!

Thank you again for sharing your gorgeous little lady with me! Love you guys! XOXO
