Here is the newest addition to the Lighten family. Meet Genesis Jade. 🙂

I was privileged to shoot alongside friend and fellow photographer, Norina Leyde, of Maple Hill Photography. She gifted me with a newborn session as a baby shower gift and invited me to bring my camera and shoot alongside her if I wanted to.

Of course I wanted to. LOL! I couldn’t pass up the opportunity. Norina is a wonderful newborn photographer and has tons of great props in her studio! The first two photos were shot on my bed, and all the rest were shot in Norina’s studio!

Thanks Norina!! Sorry we ate up so much of your time!! Newborns have no conception of time! LOL…

One of my clients/friends, Tara, gifted me with this totally adorable baby cocoon! She made it herself!!The owl hat is totally boyish, but I wanted to try it on her anyway. She wasn’t a fan. LOL.
