Welcome to the world, Ayla! – Saratoga Springs Newborn Photography
Saratoga Springs Newborn Photography | Nicole Maddalone Photography
Baby Ayla came to my studio at 10 days old for her Saratoga Springs Newborn Photography session. This session was near and dear to my heart because it was for a couple who tried for so long to conceive their first baby. They went through several rounds of IVF and prayed so hard every single day, and they never lost hope. Finally in 2017 their prayers were answered and Aimee became pregnant with Ayla! She is a true Christmas miracle! Their story touched me because I too have my own rainbow babies. I was honored to be able to photograph this amazing, beautiful milestone in their lives.
Because Ayla was so small and easily startled we agreed it was best to only do wraps with her. She did not like us getting her naked or trying to put on clothes. And because I am a professional Saratoga Springs newborn photographer, I know it’s better to let her the lead the way and do what she needs. Every time she would fuss as soon as I wrapped her up snug she would give little smiles and fall back asleep. Miss Ayla was just so precious!
Since I had such an in depth consultation with Aimee, I knew I really wanted to do something special for them for Ayla’s newborn session. I spoke to a local designer/artist and she created a gorgeous rainbow baby piece for me to lay Ayla on. Then, I got some wool hand dyed in rainbow colors from another brilliant woman. I wanted to bring in setups that really spoke to the family. They were so surprised and excited!
Thank you so much Aimee and Dominic for allowing me to capture your baby girl and new family!
