This photo shoot came to being when Rachel and her little babe stayed the weekend at my house. Seeing them snuggled up together in bed sparked an idea to make a little outdoor bed complete with a wooden pallet headboard, a bedroom among the trees if you will.
We definitely were just “winging” it the day we scampered about town looking for a location and finally found this grove of trees within a 5 minute drive from my house.
In my head I pictured our little sleepy baby from Amelia’s newborn and 3 month photos, but of course the little miss was wide awake… and probably wondering what in the world her mama and auntie were up to!
Either awake or asleep, these photos came out like a dream… I really love each of them and I feel like they truly capture the snuggles that only a mama and her babe share!
I think this may be my favorite. I love how Amelia is holding on to her mama’s sweater.
Some tips for you if you want to try something like this…
- Off white sheets would probably work better as a lot of the details were lost with the bright white-ness!
- Find a spot with lots of shade so your “bedroom” scene doesn’t look quite so much outdoors.
- And of course, plan around the babe’s schedule for when she’s sleepy, if that’s the look you’re going for. 🙂
