Naomi's Newborn Pictures


Here is my beautiful little girl.  We had her newborn pictures taken at 4 weeks old.  She was about 7 pounds and didn't want to sleep or pose for pictures while she was trying to sleep. 

I posted a bunch more on the private blog.  Cassie Mickelsen at Pink Paisley photography took her pictures.  She did a great job and I'll probably use her again for pictures when Naomi is a bit older. 

She peed on Jaren and her sheets.  It wasn't the most fun listening to her cry and scream when she just wanted to be held.  I'm glad we did them because we will have these beautiful pictures forever.  But I'll definitely take the next baby at 1 or 2 weeks when they are super super sleepy to avoid the wrath I faced with this one. 

There's another picture of her on Cassie's website.  I love all of the pictures so much that I think I'll print them all out and put them around the house.  :)  Where is the best place to print pictures?

So cute, Whitney!

I just ordered a bunch of prints from Walmart.com, of the pictures we had taken. I have this big wall that I only had one wedding picture on, and I went to Ikea and bought a ton of frames, some additional pictures, and have made like a gallery wall. I love it!

I like Walmart as well. They have the matte finish. I either go there or to a professional place down the road, which is more expensive but they do a good job.

I saw the photos you posted on FB, absolutely beautiful! Great choice of a photographer, I love her work.

Honestly, Wal Mart is AWFUL. They will oversaturate and dull your photos so they won't be the same as what your photog worked hard to create. Costco isn't much better than Wal Mart. mpix.com does a pretty good job, although I've ordered stuff from them and seen noticeable color shifting. If you really care about doing the photos justice, get them printed professionally. Otherwise I recommend mpix.com

I like Walmart, too...Costco I think prints even better if you have a card there, plus they are a great price!
Good luck!
