Long time no see friends!!!
I took a bit of a break to you know, just have a baby. Nothing really serious. LOL. Honestly it went by pretty fast! We had our latest (and definitely last) addition to our family on June 23, 2017 weighing 7 pounds and 9.5 ounces; little miss Sophia Iyla Abouzeenni. Everything went really well, except I didn’t get an epidural, I asked too late and he was already booked, and unfortunately couldn’t make it in time for me to have it. Actually he walked in ready to give it to me as they were weighing Sophia hahahaha, he had this “I’m so sorry” look on his face. I was shocked and really proud that I was able to do that with no meds. Honestly, I have nothing to say except, I am amazed at how women can give birth without meds, Truly amazing. Because without an epidural- that was pure hell, not gonna lie. Hahahaha. Also I think my speedy recovery afterwards was a result of not taking the epidural. Thankfully everything went well.
And that allowed me to shoot this little princess at 6 days old. I had sooo many ideas for her and of course trying to shoot a newborn with an 18 month old and a 4 year old running around isn’t quite realistic. But I am over the moon with what I actually got out of this shoot.
As usual, I didn’t want to do traditional pink for a girl idea. I really wanted to do more purples and greys but she peed on almost all my purple stuff so I really had no choice but to put her in pink. And actually, I’m so happy I did because it really played up her cheeks and lips shes a very pink baby lol.
I hope you enjoy all of these pictures as much as I do! And now, to redo my gallery wall…
