Meet Allyson Jo Thurm aka the Princess from the childhood story the Princess and the Pea. She has been giving her Mom and Dad a bit of a hard time and not wanting to sleep... ever... unless she is perfectly comfortable without a pea under her matress. So we had some fun with her newborn photos and took these whimsical princess pictures.
If your wondering, those are real peas in the apothacary jar. I had a bag of frozen peas laying around and thought they would look better than something fake. I actually had to lay them out with a fan on them to dry them off so they wouldn't fog up the jar.... the things we do for good photos ;)
She is such a little peanut with the most beautiful hair. I thought my babies had alot of hair but oh my! She lived up to her princess persona and would not let us move her head without waking up. But it all worked out. I had a really hard time picking out my favorites from this shoot.
I think this one above is my favorite but I really like the basket and chalkboard one too :) She certainly is a beautiful little thing and I loved hanging out with her and her momma for the afternoon snapping away. It was so much fun to cuddle her between shots. I can't get over how quickly they grow. I kept saying how she seems so small compared to Miss Jaye. But it was only 5 weeks ago that Jaye was that little.
True to her persona she stayed awake for the majority of the shoot showing off her beautiful blue eyes. She then proceeded to pass out once we were finished. Being a princess is definately exhausting. Can't wait to take more photos of this cute new family! Check out Ally's full gallery here
