they aren't exactly "newborn" - these were taken at 10days old and 14 days old! i asked my friend Clairann to help me take some, and while my sister was in town she had a blast taking some as well. After seeing all these so super cute professional ones all you bloggers have had done...i'm kinda kicking myself for not hireing a professional to do some. BUT i LOVE how these turned out! i think they did awesome! and you can't beat free!
