Lili Cate as her parents call her arrived four weeks EARLY! Mama Blair booked me early in her pregnancy for this newborn session. As typical, we book the newborn session with the mom’s due date so I have a general idea of when the session will occur. I typically get ideas from the parents if they have any must-do shots and make sure that I have things lines up to make it special and unique. I also have ideas of things that I would like to try and I like to make sure that I have everything lined up or in transit for the predicted session time if not way before.
Well, Blair contacted me and at first I thought it was a last minute check in but NOPE. Lili Cate was here!
I packed up shortly after and headed over. We really had a handful of must do shots one of which I was really excited about was incorporating the grandparents love and collection of antique scales. We were able to get some shots of Lili Cate sleeping in it with quite a bit of work and ALWAYS support and immediately near-by safety of mom and dad.
Hope I get to see more of this little one as she grows! Enjoy a few of my favorites from this adorable Raleigh newborn session!
