Josephine (11 days old) / by Julie Cruz

Josephine's parents emailed me from the hospital to let me know she had arrived, and included photos (so cute of them!), so I already knew how gorgeous she was before I arrived at their home. What I didn't know was how mellow and sweet of a baby she was going to be! She barely made a peep the entire session, and gave us lots of sweet smiles of smirks. Their super cute house was just a couple of blocks from the beach, so we ended the session at the beach. Unfortunately it ended up being full sun by that time (mid day), and we didn't want Josephine out in the sun, so we snapped a few and then found one tiny shady spot for some solo photos. Oh and yes, not only are Josephine, mom and dad so sweet and adorable....but check out Sydney (yellow lab) and Frank (french bulldog)! This whole family is just perfect :)
