olive lou | newport beach in home portrait session

you know when you meet a baby that keeps getting better and better with age which is hard to believe because they started out so great already? this little munchkin can flash the most contagious full-face smile and all your worries go away. 6-7months is hands down my favorite age to photograph. smiley, snuggly and oh so squishy. and i can't even get started about the light in this bedroom or the way those stripes look on that ilford 400 film. it's been so fun to watch this mama come into her own. she sure is good at lovin' that baby.
