It was early in the morning, September 24th to be exact.  With a level of excitement they had never felt before, Stephanie and John hopped in the car and drove to the hospital.  They were ready to meet their sweet baby for the first time.  As it was two weeks before Stephanie's due date, these soon to be parents quickly called all of their family and friends, passing on the exciting news.  Soon there would be a brand new member of the family.  Around 11 a.m. that fall morning, Olivia Anne Dale made her way out of her mommy's belly and into her loving parents arms.  At 6 pounds, 3 ounces, little Olivia was the most beautiful thing Stephanie and John had ever seen.

Last Thursday I was so blessed to photograph Olivia's newborn pictures at only five days old!  I hope you enjoy the pictures of this beautiful baby girl as much as I do!

Olivia was so excited to have her picture taken, she started dancing in front of my camera!  She is a natural STAR!

This little girl had an endless amount of expressions!  I am totally IN LOVE with the one above.
Stephanie and John holding little Olivia in their arms.  I couldn't help sneaking around the side to grab this picture of her tiny toes!

Snuggled up in a blue Tiffany's box, this baby girl already has impeccable taste.  
Olivia's small fingers were constantly grasped around her mommy and daddy's comforting hands. 
Half way through the shoot, baby Olivia drifted to sleep.  Here I think it looks like she could be floating on a cloud.  
Proud new papa.  
There is SO much to LOVE in these two pictures!  Stephanie, you look AMAZING!  Who can fit into a gown five days after giving birth?  You and Olivia look like you belong in another world, one where fairy princesses rule over the kingdom.
Olivia loves her mommy's "push present" almost as much as Stephanie does.  This engraved Tiffany's necklace from John is absolutely beautiful.

Olivia is ready for fall!

Congratulations Stephanie and John on the new addition to you family!  It was an honor capturing memories of Olivia in her earliest days.  I wish you all a life filled with happiness and love!


  1. I love the picture of her in the teal gift box! great job!

  2. Amy,
    I love these photos of Oliva and her parents. Oliva is a little doll and you captured her beauty. I love the curling toes photo. The softness of the photo in the blanket with the pink bow is amazing. Who doesn't like the Halloween photos and reminds me of photos I took of you in your Halloween outfits. Great job capturing the love of her parents eyes for their new little daughter. I am soooo proud of your photography results on this shoot! Great job.
