We are so excited to share the photos our very first Baby New Year! Elia Christina Pol, born January 1 at 12:04 a.m. was crowned JH Portrait Art & Photography’s Baby New Year 2018! We were so surprised to get a baby so close to time, and couldn’t be happier with our first ever contest. We hope to get another round of incredible entrants again next year!
My babies are growing up fast-12 and 8 (almost 9), so I truly love all the newborn time I can get. I had a great time having Elia in the studio for her shoot and enjoyed a couple of hours of sweet cuddles. Since she’s a bit older than newborn age, she was aware a lot of her shoot, but I grabbed this within the first 30 minutes or so. It was priceless. Thank you, Queen Elia, for a great Baby New Year image!
Look at this sweet face! Already a stunner with the sweetest smile <3 She is such a gorgeous girl!
During the shoot, I enjoyed spending time with Elia’s mom, Nikki, and her grandmother, discussing Elia’s birth and family. Elia already has a pet pig named Charlie, which is her mom’s pet. I thought that was adorable and fun. Nikki’s aunt crocheted these amazing pig shoes for sweet Elia and we loved them so much that we had to get a photo!
Elia’s room is decorated with pigs, and she has a sweet pig blanket as well! Next year, Elia will pass her crown off to the next Baby New Year 2019, but in the meantime, we can’t wait to watch this beautiful baby girl grow up!
