Staten Island Newborn | Cicely

Staten Island Newborn

One of my first ever newborns was photographed at the Staten Island home of my childhood friend Catherine. We were friends since we were 11 years of age and even share the same birthday down to the year. We like to say we are soul sisters. She trusted me with her first baby almost 4 years ago and now she gave me the honor of returning for her second daughter, Cicely. It is always extra pressure for me to do these sessions for people I am close with because I want to make sure I am getting all the poses they see in my portfolio. Cicely was a bit fussy in the beginning however we made it work and we got the poses her mama really wanted especially a sibling pose with her older sister Charley Rose. This session was my last newborn of the year and the last Christmas setup I can do before my fast approaching trip to Australia. I am glad we ended the year on a successful note!
