This past year something sooo exciting happened in my life: My best friend had a baby! For 15+ years we’ve had a solid group of 4 girlfriends we call “The Core Four” and with this little addition we’re a girls party of 5!

She was born at the end of August on her grandfathers birthday and was such a little peanut! Only 5 pounds! We did her newborn session at home in Warwick, NY when she was 5 days old and she slept soundly the entire time – a dream baby for photographers. <3

During her newborn session we used light pink and purple tones mixed in with earthy neutrals. My best friend had some adorable gold headbands to use too. Two special requests were to get a photo with their dogs, and one for dad with some baby-safe items from his brewery: Camp Stove Brew Collective. Both came out super cute! I especially love the black and white images with her pups.

I’m so proud of my best friend – she’s an amazing, loving, mom. Getting to watch Avery grow up and bring her on our adventures will be so much fun! I can’t wait to see what the future holds for her. For now, though.. lets enjoy this cute little face and all her newborn photos… here are the highlights:
