Mila | Holland, Pa Newborn
It's a long explanation as to how she is my aunt (there's a divorce, new marriage, new kids, etc lol), but we grew up more like cousins, and I'm more thankful for that because we grew up much closer!! So when I found out she was pregnant, I politely hinted around at the idea. I think Jamie and her husband Shermill knew that it was going to happen, but I didn't want to be too pushy by telling them I was doing their daughter's newborn photographs... Until I finally gave in and just told them I would love it if they would let me. Thankfully, there was no argument!
When Mila was born, I was already moved into our new home in Myrtle Beach, SC. Luckily for me, I made an entire weekend out of my trip home and got to spend the night with them before working the next morning. I had so much fun with Mila and her family that time was lost on us, which isn't always a bad thing! I mean, when you get a chance to have to stop a shoot and laugh with the parents about their daughter not pooping once while setting up a shot, but twice, it makes for a great time!
Thank you for allowing me the chance to take her first photographs Jamie + Shermill!
