Four Week Newborn Girl| Ayla | Byron, Minnesota Newborn Photographer

Meet Miss Ayla, four weeks new and the perfect little bundle of joy!  For many various reasons, I don’t typically shoot newborn sessions at this age but when Ayla’s mommy sent me a message and asked if I could fit her into my schedule, I thought why not!?!?  If anything, this session was going to give me a challenge and those are good to have every now and then.  Well, the joke was on me because Miss Ayla made this four week newborn session an absolute breeze!

She arrived at the studio nice sleeping peacefully and blissfully slept throughout the first half of her session.

Half of a session’s nap was long enough for her.  Next thing I knew, Miss Ayla was wide awake and contently checking out her surroundings.  One bonus to having an older newborn in the studio is getting some of the most amazing eye contact and the cutest little pursed lips.

Not only do I love every image from this gallery because Ayla is cuter than cute, I also love it because I got to use my favorite color.  Bet you can’t guess what that is can you?

Soon enough, Miss Ayla was sound asleep and in near record time, her session was a wrap!
