New York City Newborn Photography | Shanti

New York City Newborn Photography

It was a gorgeous sunny day when we arrived to the New York City upper east side apartment of baby Shanti. Shanti had a full set of dark brown hair and I was super excited to play dress up with her. Her little chunk was so adorable I could have ate her right up. Shanti wasn’t as excited for the session as my assistant and I were, but she managed to finally fall asleep so we can pose her on the beanbag in my workflow of poses. Her mom requested lavender and grey for the session as well as a cream lace onesie she had seen on one of my earlier posts. She posed so perfectly on the beanbag and I think I captured one of my favorite froggy poses of all time. Unfortunately we weren’t able to get a sibling shot with the family’s 10 month old boxer puppy Bella, but we were able to get a family shot with the dog instead. 

Here’s a preview of her gallery:
