Last Thursday was a big day for my little Lola! At the ripe age of 17 days, she had her first photoshoot and went to her first Cincy Chic event (the School’s Back, Mom Relax event at Elements Event Center — I figured a mom’s event was a fitting one to return back to work with! haha!)

We went to my friend Sherri Barber’s photography studio in the West End downtown. It’s a great space with all kinds of different backdrops and lots of great natural light. She set up a little photo set, complete with props like headbands, a cute little princess crown, and fluffy little blankets to lay on.

I swear, Sherri was like a Baby Whisperer because I brought in a screaming baby (Lola is still getting used to car rides and the restrictive car seat … versus laying on my cozy lap all day). Sherri told me to feed feed feed her to get her full, happy and tired. Then, because she was down to her birthday suit, Sherri had the studio’s temps cranked up and a space heater on the little photo set to keep her nice and toasty.

It worked like a charm and we got some ADORABLE shots. Above is just one from the shoot. I can’t wait to see the rest!
