Meet beautiful Lilliana Marie! This sweet, pretty newborn baby was just 7 days old when she joined me for her photo session here at my home studio near Pittsburgh. Her mom, Nena, picked my “Summer Sunset” color choice and Lilly looked beautiful in every single color, but I especially loved her in purple! Not only were we able to use a lot of fun bright colors, Nena’s mom and her Aunt Kelly also made several of the newborn hats and headbands she wore during the shoot. They are a talented and good looking family, don’t you think? Enjoy!
I REALLY loved this newborn bonnet that Lilliana’s Aunt Kelly from Star Blossoms made for her. I loved it so much that I kept it, haha. Kelly, invoice me!
Doesn’t she look so adorable in it?
Nena made this tutu for me awhile ago and it was the inspiration behind the color choices used in this shoot. It was a little big for a newborn so we used it in the bucket instead. It was made out of an old nightshirt that Nena once had. I think Lilliana sensed that because this was the best she slept all session!OMGosh, she was so smily for us! Look at that little smirk! Headband by Nena (Rosella Bella).
Another great hat by Star Blossoms. Doesn’t it remind you of that one Sesame Street character?Nena brought these vintage hankies which wear her Grandmothers. I wish I could have kept those too, haha! I loved them!I think purple is her color!Lilliana’s big sister, Rosie, joined us for a few sister photos at the end of our session. You may remember Rosie from her 2 year old photos earlier this year. Rosie was a little tired but she really wanted to be in a photo with her little sister. She loves her so much and is already protective of her. She was just so sweet with her!We tried this cute pill box hat on at the very end of the session just to see what it looked like and I snapped one last photo. I just love how it turned out!
Congratulations Startare family! Two beautiful girls!
