Makayla Rae

This morning, Ping and Surina let me come over to their house to take pictures of little five-day old Makayla. She was my guinea pig, as I have never taken newborn photos besides the typical snapshots that anyone would take. I arrived with a laundry basket full of blankets, backdrops, hats, scarves, and flowers. I also brought my spaceheater and raised the temperature of their living room to a balmy 80 degrees to keep her warm. I didn't know what the heck I was doing and just decided to dive in. These are several of my favorite shots...isn't she beautiful? Afterwards, I scooped her up and sat down on the couch. I forgot how wonderful it was to hold such a tiny little baby.
