Meet baby Sofia! This red headed beauty was born at only 34 weeks gestation and was 4lbs 9oz of pure perfection. While she had a brief stay in the NICU this strong girl hit the 5lb club the morning of our session at only 12 days old! You “grow” girl! I like to think its because she has Marines for parents… strength is in her blood! Sofia was the tiniest baby I’ve had in my studio to date and its safe to say I am IN LOVE with every image from her preemie newborn session. Her mama spoiled me and let me feed her a bottle mid session and get in all the baby snuggles. Girlfriend already has a big personality and gave the sweetest smiles throughout the entire session. BUT, she somehow managed to evade the camera every time I tried to capture one of them! Stinker 🙂
The session was supposed to be just mama and baby but Danielle worked her magic on Tony and got him to agree to be a part of the session too! Ya’ll, when I say having dads at sessions makes my day I mean it. There is just something so special about capturing images of the two parts that combined to make a new life. Knowing Sofia got her red hair from family on both mom and dad’s side, and that the color is a perfect match to her big brother. Genetics is seriously a wild concept to me. They were even able to tell from day 1 that Sofia looks just like her older sister but has her dads face and shape.
How. Freaking. Cool.
Clearly, I need more babies. Ha.
Danielle and Tony you are some of the most down to earth and kind humans I have ever met. Danielle, I really think I could have talked to you for the entire day and then some! I was sad to hear you will be getting a new assignment soon and will say goodbye to Dallas.
DiPrima’s you will be missed but wherever you get assigned will be better just for having you there! I need to see lots of updated photos of your beautiful fam on social media otherwise I might just have to come visit ya myself 😉
