Baby Mercy || Austin, TX Newborn Photography

Baby Mercy is what I like to call a baby unicorn. A magical, mystical beast disguised as a beautiful newborn baby that is perfect in every way. Coming from a photographer that means a super sleepy, squishy, posable baby that sleeps straight through her session. And hits every pose like a pro.

Gorgeous in every color combo but this yellow is to-die-for! 💛💜

Now don’t get me wrong…I love every baby I meet. Even the grumpy and fussy babies. When they come in that just means I get more snuggling time! I could think of way worse issues to have for a job, kwim?

She really perfected every pose I put her in!

This was a Petite Newborn session which takes no more than 2 hours. If the baby is hungry or gassy or just fussy, we may end up with more wrapped/swaddled poses in order to fill up the gallery with images. But with a unicorn baby we can knock out so much variety in a short period of time.

Fussy babies sometimes need to be swaddled more for their photos but these rare little unicorns get to show off with just a loose wrap. 🦄

Those beautiful curls! Moms never want to cover baby’s curls with a bonnet but sometimes I beg (just a little) to get in a shot or two because COME ON! It’s freakin’ adorable!!! 😍

At the end of the session I was cooing and telling her how awesome she was and I got this big smile! 😍

Then I immediately got the ‘ok, we’re done here’ look. 😂

These babies are very, very rare, so don’t get discouraged if your baby isn’t a unicorn for her session. It’s really shocking to me when I meet one! I do a happy dance after every newborn session (no really, I do. I love them so much!) But I do an extra little jig when I get a unicorn!
