Oh Dara. This little baby is just so beautiful, I melt a little inside whenever I look at her face. Yes, she’s special. Her mom contacted me when pregnant and asked about booking her newborn portraits. It was important to her to normalize Dara’s cleft palate; she knew that she’d have corrective surgeries and she knew that Dara would grow up happy and healthy and have questions and want to know just how she looked when she was born. So here she is. Really just as beautiful as every other baby I get to hold. I’ve shown her pictures to a handful of people and every single one breaks out in a case of the “aaaawwwww”s when they see this sweet little face.
Dara is a lucky baby – she has 5 big brothers and sisters to look out for her. And one amazing Mama who is the best thing that could’ve happened to this girl (even if she thinks that her cute little puss looks like grumpy cat). Dara’s session was like an overdue lunch date with an old girlfriend – her Mom and I had so much in common and a lot to laugh about. I can’t wait to see them both again.
Enjoy beautiful Dara.
