Meet baby Desdemona. This little princess came to my Orlando, FL newborn studio for her photo session when she was one week old. When she was born, she weighed 6lbs 13.5oz and made her grand entrance right on her due date. Her momma and I have known each other since our High School days, and so I was honored to photograph Desdemona for her very first photo session.
She was such a dream baby to photograph!! She slept the entire time and was oh so smiley! Seriously though, I think I got a record number of newborn baby smiles during her session!
Desdemona is such a cool name for a baby girl! Her mom said her name was inspired from the character Desdemona from William Shakespeare’s “Othello” and a character from the 90’s Gargoyles animated series.
I had so much fun during her session, as her parents requested to do a few themed photos. We did a few Harry Potter newborn photos (both for Team Gryffindor and Team Ravenclaw). The wands in these photos are special as they were chosen for her parents.
Then, we incorporated her dad’s love for Dungeons and Dragons and took a few newborn photos with his D & D books and dice.
Desdemona’s parents are also big fans of Netflix’s Stranger Things, so naturally we had to do a few Stranger Things newborn photos using some Christmas lights and the cutest little Demogorgon.
We also took some non-themed, but oh so pretty newborn photos. I just love how these headbands from some of my favorite prop vendors Polka Dot Poppy and Lemon and Pearl Designs accessorize her full head of pretty hair. The wooden bowl that she is nestled in is from Bailey’s knits. The “bump blanket” was made my yours truly.
Welcome to the world Desdemona!
