Zoey Marie : Newborn session with my niece!


Zoey Marie Bartkowiak

Born : August 5th, 2014

5 lbs. 15 oz. 19 in. long

My sister Julia was on bed rest after early labor signs a few weeks earlier.  
Baby was strong and healthy though, and all we had to do was wait. 
We had the baby shower on a Sunday (August 3rd).  
Julia felt good throughout, but for sure couldn’t wait for little Zoey to come.
1 day later, as if Zoey was listening, Julia checked into the hospital and the labor process began.
Finally, early on Tuesday morning, (1:30am), Zoey graced this world with her presense.

At just 4 days old, and a little over 3 weeks after their maternity session, this little cutie has captured our hearts.

I could not be happier for my baby sister and brother-in-law.

This little angel is such a blessing! <3

Here are some of the pictures from Zoey’s very first photo shoot.  🙂

So tiny in mom’s hands. <3

She came out with a LOT of dark hair, but I see some blonde highlights!

I couldn’t get enough of her…probably could have photographed her all day. 😉

She is so adorable…like a tiny little porcelain doll.

Hello little ears! <3

Our beautiful little ZoZo.  A button nose and chubby cheeks = perfect profile. <3

Wrapped up in purple…

(p.s. check out that wrinkly baby skin on her knee) <3 <3 <3

…and pink. 🙂

It was really cool and surreal watching my youngest sister in her new role.

She is a pure natural and you can see how comfortable Zoey is on mom. <3

Then daddy came in and ‘sister’ Jersey got curious too! Ha!

She started to wake up as soon as Jason (Daddy) picked her up.

I love this picture! “I’m too cute to wake up.”

Zoey’s eyes are like mirrors…they do say eyes are like mirrors into one’s soul.  <3

Love how tiny her head is in daddy’s hands. <3

Then all of sudden, she looked right at me.

Yep, this Auntie is in love!

Hello baby blues!

Daddy and his little dolly. <3

She is only 4 days old, but so alert!

This is the beginning of a beautiful life together. 😉

But she wasn’t having this pose any longer! LOL! <3

As soon as Julia held her, she got so calm.  Yep, she knows who mom is.

My beautiful sister and her tiny bundle of joy.  <3

Suddenly, life just got a whole lot sweeter.I just can’t get over how tiny and cute she is! 

You just wonder what she is thinking here…

This is one perfect little family portrait.

Zoey’s birth details.

Jason surprised Julia with a birth display in the front lawn when she came home from the hospital.

We of course had to document it! 😉

As an Auntie, I can’t help but spoil my nieces and nephew.

Saw this bow and had to get it! Her first accessory from yours truly. 😉

I asked Jules (Mommy) to take a quick picture of me with my newest niece.

I am one very lucky Auntie Bebbie! <3 <3 <3

Who would have thought this little lady could bring so much joy into our lives?!

I can’t wait to watch this little one grow and for many more photo sessions.

Until next time ZoZo!

Love you always & forever – Auntie Bebbie



A few pictures from Zoey’s first day to her first weeks. 🙂

Needless to say, this family is truly blessed! <3
