Stella | Newborn

Kathy and Rob had been anxiously awaiting the birth of little Stella James when we did their Bella Collina maternity session back in October. Much to their surprise, Stella joined their new family a little early, so I got to meet their little peanut when she was just 8 days old!

Stella was born on November 22, 2011 at 4pm. She was a healthy 6 lbs. 12.5 oz – and has the cutest big feet ever!

I can’t wait to see her again in a couple months and watch how much she grows this year :)

I may have almost peed my pants when Kathy’s mom pulled out this picture of Kathy as a baby :)

I adore Kathy’s necklace – it’s a real peanut dipped in gold – it’s also Stella’s nickname-sake :)

Stella can fall asleep just about anywhere…. seriously.

Stella’s room is like this Parisian happy place – full of soft colors, sweet accents and fashion details.

Stella was done cooperating. Gladly, she didn’t cry once during our session, but I took this next “pose” as a sign….
