Sweet baby girl | Springtime | San Diego

Meet Emily. I am so lucky that I met this fabulous family and got to photograph their sweet baby girl last week.

She is an absolute angel (with a healthy pair of lungs), and her parents were incredible.

They are first time parents. But you’d never have guessed.

I told them that Emily may get fussier and cry more if mom is around, because she will be able to smell her.

So basically, Emily’s mom let me in, and then disappeared.

It was hilarious. And amazing.

Because I say that true statement ALL THE TIME to newborn families, but no one can ever tear themselves away from their crying baby.

I don’t blame them. Not at all.

But it really really helps the photo shoot.

I was there for 4 hours….and I got a lot of pictures…but it could have been much longer, with fewer good shots, if mom hadn’t followed my suggestion.


Congratulations to the sweet new family!
I loved spending the day with you all.

  • 1 week old baby girl | Kim Kelley Photography[…] Their first daughter was a breeze to photograph, so I expected the same from baby Madelyn, and I got it! I give all the credit to the parents. I gave them strict instructions, which basically boils down to 1. keep the house at 80 degrees, no matter how sweaty you get, and 2. stay far away from the photo shoot so Madelyn doesn’t sense you/smell you and get restless. They obliged on all counts. Which, as any mom of a 1 week old baby girl can probably imagine, is a very difficult thing to do (to stay away).  But this sweet baby’s mom posed for a few shots, then disappeared until M instructed us that it was time to eat again.
