lizzie, brand new / by Ashley Brown

This has been the season of photographing sweet, brand new baby girls (really... I got to meet another this morning!) Meet Lizzie, named for her grandmothers, delicately beautiful and as good of  a sport as they came. She was more than willing to humor us, as long as she had a full belly and got frequent snuggles with mom and dad. Even Buckley the dog was happy to join in (mom and dad also a horse who I would have loved to photograph, but horses aren't good candidates for cuddling in bed!) Lizzie's parents just moved here from out of state, so I know these images will be especially precious to their families in the midwest. I am a nursery freak and Lizzie's quickly became one of my favorites. I loved the unexpected combo of robin's egg blue, soft pink, apple green and cream.
