Okay, I cannot get enough of this sweet doll baby! ♥
Little Miss Maggie Ruth was so easy to work with, sleeping through our entire session. Most babies need a little snack or feeding between setups, but not Maggie! Believe me, not all sessions are this easy.
Mom and Dad had told me they had a rough night. Maggie was up a lot feeding, and spit up on their bed. Yup, people, it happens, so be prepared. Get those extra bed sets before you have a baby! I shared my own double-spit-up-night story with them (twins), and we had a good laugh. I hate to say it, but a bad night for the baby, usually means we will have a great session in the morning.
So this darling girl let us easily put her in one setup and then the next. And she looks absolutely adorable. Doesn't she?!
I want to point out the wooden toys. I was told that they represent three generations. The monkey was Maggie's grandmother's, the elephant and rhino were Dad's, and they bought the giraffe new for Maggie. Don't you just love that? I'm always very interested in learning about the sentimental values of items used during my sessions.
Mom also told me that the story of Alice in Wonderland has always been special to her. She used to read it to her students every year. The book in these photos was a gift to Maggie, from a dear friend of Mom's, who also shares the love of Wonderland.
And now, I can't leave you without talking about Atlas, Maggie's older fur brother. Atlas is named after the Greek Titan. Mom and Dad met through their Greek affiliations, and rescued their fur baby when they were in college. They thought Atlas was the perfect name for him.
Age is but a number to this boy. He was so interested in Maggie and just wanted to be close to her. He looked in every room until he found the one that she was in, and he would follow her wherever she went. I dare you to look at the last photo without letting an, "awwwww," slip from your lips.
