This three month old portrait session with baby Tessa and parents was so special to me. I have known Tessa’s mommy since Jr. High! The Nayala family just moved back to Southern California about a month before Tessa made her very early arrival in this world. Not even unpacked yet before practically moving into the hospital for the long haul, the transition was challenging to say the least. Fortunately, Tessa is a crazy strong girl like her mother and after about a month in the hospital she was finally able to go home with mom and dad.
Because Tessa was in the NICU for so long, by the time I was able to get her newborn portraits done even though still tiny, she was awake and stretchy (just look at those legs)! There is a reason we newborn photographers recommend that you get your newborn portraits done within about 10 days of birth for the posed newborn portraits but all is not lost if you miss that window. In this case, we did a second family portrait shoot when Tessa was three months old and I am just in love with how the images came out during her three month old portrait session.
So much love and fun in this family and it shows through within these family portraits. You can’t see the struggle they went through to get this baby girl home but you can see the love that they have for each other and that they would do anything for this precious baby girl.
Be sure to view the Newborn Gallery for more baby eye-candy images!
