A New Arrival: Elizabeth Darcy {Newborn Portraits}

February 4, 2013


6 lbs, 15 oz

Elizabeth Darcy's arrival was long awaited, and much celebrated.  This little girl's entrance into the world was a grand one, and she came home from the hospital right when 2013's epic blizzard (Nemo) hit New England.  Our 30+ inches of snow delayed our photo shoot a few days, but I was thrilled to get to photograph this little girl when she turned 7 days old.

Welcome to the world, Lizzie.

Lizzie's mom and I teach together, and the moment Kate told me she was pregnant we were already talking about scheduling her maternity and newborn sessions.  Check out the family's whimsical maternity session, here.

Continuing on that whimsical theme, we created so many soft and beautiful portraits of little Lizzie.  I am in love with these images!  This little girl is just so precious.

Lizzie has these deep blue eyes that were so alert for much of the session.  She fought sleep so hard and wanted to see what was going on around her.  Such a curious little girl!

So sleepy!  She's trying so hard to keep those eyes open here...  But then she finally succumbed to sleep.

Kate and Matt are so excited about the arrival of their little girl, and it showed!  I love these black and whites that I captured of them together.

And another of my favorites from the session is this soft image of Kate and Lizzie.  The light is PERFECT!


A few more teasers of this Valentine's baby...

And lastly, since both of Lizzie's parents are teachers, of course we got some pics with books!  This baseball book is one of Matt's faves.  He's a NY fan.  ;o)
