I’m working on a “Tips for shooting newborns” post with lots of pictures of this pretty little lady, but I couldn’t hold off from posting at least a few any longer!  This is my newest niece, Lyla.

4 days new.

6 days.

9 days.

She looks perfect, right?  If only we had known that after about 5 days this little missy would get her nights and days all worked out and liked to stay awake during the day.  She was one of my hardest newborns ever.   I took the girl out at sunrise near the end of my trip (below) in hopes that she’d stay asleep for me.  Little did we know that this was her happy time!  When she started giving me these giant smiles I could hardly believe it.  She did this every five minutes like clockwork for about 30 minutes.

Lyla at 10 days.

Oh, and Happy Birthday to my Gramma!  Hope you enjoyed these pictures of your 11th great-grandchild!

    She is precious and I adore that name.

    Can you write a post (or just tell me) about where you get all of your amazing baby props? I especially love the headbands and long hats. That nest is amazing as well!

    No words….seriously, there are just no words to describe how much I’m in love with these pics (and that little girl for that matter 😉 )
