I so enjoyed my morning with baby Kira and her family. Her big brother is a spunky, funny little dude who was so sweet with his baby sister. He was a great helper and stayed close by as I set up and wanted to know all about what I was doing. He liked getting to “test out” the blankets for his little sister :)
I had brought all of my usual cream colored and pastel blankets, but mom Sandra asked if we could use some gorgeous brightly colored swaddles she had instead. The vibrant colors fit their family and little Kira perfectly. I always love it when families ask if we can include something in the photos that is important to them. Sometimes it’s not possible (my first concern, always, is the safety and comfort of baby), but in this case not only did we use the bright swaddles, but also a Native American medicine bag and a gorgeous antique rocking chair.
I adore this first photo of her with such a determined look on her little face. “Though she be but little, she is fierce!” – William Shakespeare
