Micayla brought her little sweetheart in for newborn photos. She’s 3 weeks old here, a preemie. Her little outfits made me want to die from the cuteness overload!
It was a cold day in February. Micayla and her step-dad Buddy pulled up in the truck with Lyric in tow. Admittedly, Buddy did all the heavy lifting, since Micayla was still healing from her C-section.
Lyric Winnie Anne Vallier, born January 18th. Micayla, her boyfriend Robert, and Lyric’s big brother Dawson are so proud. She’s the first granddaughter among several grandsons. You can bet she’ll be spoiled, and showered in love.
“She is SO not going to be a girly girl! Lyric is going to be riding horses, riding dirtbikes, and out on the snowmobile.”
We set up a few scenes. It was important to Micayla to feature the guitar her Grandpa made (and later her Uncle finished) for her Mom. We also featured a saddle, and a winter scene, to showcase two of Micayla’s passions: Riding and Snowmobiling.
Beyond the featured items, Micayla let me play and get creative, which I so love and appreciate. Of course, I love to create the requests of my clients! I also love part of the session to be about experimentation and creative expression. That’s what feeds my soul.
I’m more spontaneous than strictly planned, so I find it stimulating to pull together ideas last-minute. Like this sheet music. She and I both thought of it, but neither of us were able to produce any to bring! So… spontaneity in hand, I printed some off the computer while Lyric fed and was being pacified.
It was a longer newborn session, which can happen. It’s really all on baby’s time and comfort. If the newborn is unhappy, we wait. We patiently waited for Lyric’s gassy tummy to settle down, for her belly to be filled with formula, for her temperature to feel just right, and for her ears to hear the comforting “shh shh shh shh shh” of her mother’s soothing voice.
I’m sure Lyric, Robert, and Micayla would love to hear your well wishes. If you’ve got kind words of congratulations for this new family, please comment below!
