Katelynn’s First Moments – DIY Newborn Photo Shoot

My second daughter Katelynn was born early this year on January 8th at a hefty, healthy 9 pounds, 4 ounces! The fact that she is so healthy is truly a miracle and a blessing because I lost a total of 21 pounds due to Hyperemesis Gravidarum. If you’d like to read about my pregnancy journey, you can visit prisoner in my own body. Danny and I decided to set up our own newborn photo shoot to celebrate Kate’s precious first moments. We covered our boppy pillow with a baby blanket and used that to prop up Katelynn on her tummy for the photos. We decided to shoot her naked (so cute!) with just an adorable headband on. We covered her with another blanket so that she wasn’t too cold. We shot the photos in the morning, using natural sunlight as well as some extra lighting from our bedroom lamps. Of course we had to include our first daughter Annelise (18 months) in the photos. We encouraged her to pat and kiss her baby sister and we got some wonderful shots of sweet sisterly love in action. I love how our DIY newborn photo shoot turned out!

  1. What a sweetie! I love your DIY shoot! I did the same thing – no need to pay a professional when we can try to do it ourselves right? 🙂 Oh and her headband it just too cute! Congrats!
