I had the pleasure of meeting Little Miss Leighton for the first time a few weekends ago when I traveled to Plano, TX for her newborn session. At 10 days old and weighing a little more than 6 lbs, baby Leighton stole my heart. Her mom, Angie, and I planned for several months before her birth, discussing due date possibilities, ideal weekends for travel and pictures, photo ideas and more. Everything went according to plan, and Leighton's newborn session couldn't have been more perfect. We kept her warm, full, and happy; in return, she rewarded us with cute snugly poses.
Her nursery had great lighting, so most of the session took place there. I almost teared up when I walked into her room for the first time, Angie and David created a beautiful, classic nursery, fit for a princess. Angie pointed out some of her favorite details to me, explaining how several pieces in the room were gifts from family and friends. -- The pennant name banner above the crib was crafted at a scrap-booking weekend by close friends and the delicate chevron curtains were sewn with love by family. Leighton's Dad, David and I talked about the hours he spent painting her room, and making sure all the details were just right. It was very clear that this lucky baby girl was loved by many!
During the family portion of our session, I got to witness some special moments between Leighton and her older brother Bryant. Coming from a family with 3 older brothers, I understand the special bond these two will have in years to come. It was sweet to see this cool teenager be so smitten with this little girl.
This is such a special family to me, and I am so thrilled to have shared a little portion of this new chapter with them!
