Shreveport, Louisiana Newborn Photographer | Natalie's Birthday Session

Natalie was such a DELIGHT for her first birthday session! Melissa reached out and wanted something special for her only daughter. We talked for a little while before we decided what to do for her session. I absolutely love doing sunflower set ups for girls. I mean who doesn’t love flowers? I soon learned this little angel had Trisomy 21 (Down Syndrome). I am thankful Melissa was so open with me about her daughter. I loved learning more about how unique Natalie was. I remember in college when I wrote a 13 page paper discussing everything from health to insurance about Down Syndrome. I am thankful she trusted me to capture her sweetest memories. When she mentioned she was a special ed teacher, I remember telling her God works in mysterious ways. They were considering adoption before she found out she was pregnant with a baby girl. Natalie has three older brothers who I know will protect and love her with all their heart. <3

Just look at her precious smile and little tongue. She enjoyed played with the beads and sunflowers during her session. It was the little things that made her smile like when mom saying how precious she was. I am overjoyed I got to meet this incredible family. When I look at Natalie I see a determined baby girl. I think she will go far in life with her wonderful family standing beside her. I don’t see a baby girl who is different. I see a baby girl who is unique in her own way. She has already been through a lot and still strong which tells me how special she is. <3
