Finley | Sneak Peek & a Giveaway! {WW #57} CLOSED

I took photos of 6 day new baby Finley. She was so precious and has three older siblings that love her to pieces. Love this photo on their parents bed with all their feet!

Toward the end we finally got her to sleep with my white noise app on my phone. iPhone for the win!

Sweet moment with the parents and their new baby girl.

So precious!! She really loved been wrapped up in a ball.

    Love these sweet baby photos! It amazes me how many great pictures people come up with when they’ve got a baby on their hands. My lack of creativity really limited the shots I got of my tiny girl, but every day I’m trying to make up for it, inspired by photos like yours. Gorgeous! Following you from the mixer.
