I had the joy of photographing baby Elena for her birth, maternity, and newborn session. This tiny little one is only a few weeks old, but I feel like I know her so well already. I’ll start with the birth pictures and move on to her in-studio newborn session.
Elena’s birth started like any other. Except Elena’s mom made birth look like the most beautiful thing ever. She would go from having a contraction and be in a lot of pain to having the biggest smile on her face. It was clear that she was excited to meet her little girl and her 4th baby.
After baby was born things got a little scary. Mom wasn’t feeling well (her blood pressure dropped) and baby had a not previously diagnosed tumor. The baby was loved on by mom’s support system and all was well soon after birth. Baby Elena did have to have to be transferred to a different hospital and have a pretty serious surgery soon after birth to remove the tumor. Elena did spend a few weeks recovering after surgery in the NICU.
The good news is she is doing fantastic now. There are few signs she even had surgery except for her scar. She has the BEST baby rolls you have ever seen! Enjoy the pictures and following along on Elena’s journey.
Here are all the siblings meeting for the first time…
Elena was a little older than most newborns when she came into the studio due to her stay in the NICU. But she still did fantastic for her newborn session. I still can’t get over her amazing baby rolls!
Welcome to the world, little one. You have been though so much in your short little life. You are such a trooper!
