a brand new Penny

My good friend Aimee asked me to take some newborn shots of her new daughter, Penny, so I said, “uh let me think about this reeeally hard…..YES!” I had so much fun taking these simple shots of her. Nakey baby pics are so adorable.

She was only about a week old when we took these-which is perfect timing for newborn shots, or so I read. Look at me, playing photographer. (so sad really, I’m a bit delusional)

This fabric is Amy Butler-from her Daisy Chain line, Deco Rose in Brown. (I got it from my sponsor, Modern Fabric Studio, but it looks like they’re out)

This was by far our favorite backdrop!

I’m happy with the way they turned out! So is momma and that’s what matters right? One tip I found online is to keep a space heater nearby, and blasting. It said you should be sweating…which we were, meanwhile Penny was comfy cozy in her birthday suit!

Penny was a champ in between changing backdrops and stuff on her head.

Squinchy face!

This fabric is Blockprint Blossom in Fuschia from Joel Dewberry’s Heirloom line.

hehe she did tinkle on this blanket, but I’d say we definitely avoided the worst of it. (you know what I’m talking about…)

I love these of her wrapped up in the blanket-she’s on her quilt I made her, too….so precious!


  1. Beautiful photography of a beautiful girl Jess! I adore the last pic -sooo cute!

  2. SO utterly precious Jess! What a beautiful baby, and the photos are just gorgeous.
    I wish that I had done more photography before having my babies so that I could have taken beautiful photos of them.

  23. Is there anything you can’t do? I’m glad to see you are still taking pictures. They are amazing! I still treasure the ones you took as a youth of Kirsten when she was only 1.

  24. Aww how gorgeous, you played photographer very well!
