ladena & brie

Ladena, the stunning momma in the images below, contacted me a while back to book a nursing session with her one year old baby girl, Brielyn. I had never photographed a nursing session before but always wanted to, so we booked the soonest date possible. Ladena thrifted these matching flower crowns from a local shop and I suggested this rocky beach on the American River. That, along with little Brie's piercing blue eyes and the best golden hour I've ever shot in, made this one of my favorite sessions yet. The photographs were a gift to Ladena from her husband as his way of thanking her for bringing their baby girl into the world, which makes it all that much sweeter.
