Popping in really quickly this afternoon to share some of my favorites from a recent newborn session with an adorable baby girl named Ria. I met Ria and her family at their home a couple of months ago and had the best time photographing the growing Pittman family. Ria was exactly like a tiny little doll, and she was so adorable in all of the different outfits we put her in. I especially loved the crocheted onesie with the pearl headband that Becky picked out for her! Here are some of my favorites from our day:
Oh, the Bahamas. It feels like such a lifetime ago that we went on the most fun trip to Nassau, when in reality, it has only been a short two months since we returned. My best friend, Becca & her mama, WON THE TRIP on Ellen’s 12 Days of Giveaways. Isn’t that nuts!? Who gets to say that Ellen freaking Degeneres gifted them a trip to a tropical island and ten thousand star resort?!! My bestie, thats who! My husband and I were the luckiest of all people, because Becca’s sweet and generous as heck mother gifted us her trip. WHAT?!!!? I don’t know what I will ever do to repay her for her generosity, but I have a few ideas on how to start. Anyway, we stayed at the most beautiful resort, which is pretty new, called Baha Mar (linked here). They had about 1000 pools, a casino, 364312 restaurants, and really gorgeous accommodations. I am exaggerating a bit on the pools and restaurants, but it was really a lot! The resort has converted a bunch of airstreams into the cutest food trucks on the beach, has FLAMINGOS for you to admire, and even a sanctuary with a grotto where you can also admire sting rays, nurse sharks, and sea turtles. I can’t even describe how cool that was. We spent our days by the beach and pool, and our afternoons walking next-door to the Daiquiri Shack, which was always well worth it. Who knew that a plum daiquiri was the best flavor ever? You are welcome. Our bahamas dream trip lasted from Sunday to Friday, and I really wanted to gift Becca + Luke a nice set of portraits from our trip, so by Wednesday evening, we had been around the resort enough for me to pick out some lovely portrait locations, and we set out to create some beautiful images. I loved how many different natural backgrounds we were able to get – it really looks like we were at at least 4 different locations, but these were all taken on resort. Here are a few of my favorites!!!
