First of all, just look at how petite this peanut is at 22 days old?! What a stunning beauty. Miss Layla's mom and I went to graduate school together not long ago and if I learned one thing about her from those three grueling summers together--it's that she wanted nothing more than to be a mama.
Shortly after grad school, my husband and I attended her gorgeous (and super fun!) wedding. We pulled a lot of pieces from their wedding, obviously the wedding dress, veil and shoes, but also the peacock feathers pictured above. Also, for those of you who don't know, that's a viola below--Mary's primary instrument. I loved using all of the items in this shoot that had a lot of meaning. Props near to the heart always have the most powerful impact.
Miss Layla was simply a doll for this shoot. Layla you are so lucky to have two parents who love you so deeply, and parents--you're even luckier, just look at that sweet girl! :)
Best wishes for a happy, healthy, and glowing first year for Layla. I hope to see her again very soon!
