I could tell when I walked into the Benitez's house for their newborn shoot that this was going to be an extraordinary session. For new parents, they showed almost no sign of stress and were taking everything in stride. This was amazing, considering they just had a baby less than two weeks earlier! I later learned this was because Mila is a little angel (well, most of the time); she slept the entire session while she was being photographed and even gave us a few adorable smiles.
Mila Marie Benitez was born on January 22nd 2016 at 11:39pm. She weighed 7lbs, 5oz and measured 20.25 inches.
One of the first things Kelli told me while she was still pregnant was that she didn't want any of the typical flowery headbands. Instead they were going to buy her a handmade Ewok outfit.
I must say, it is quite adorable!
Mila was already practicing her signature air guitar moves (and face!).
I hope Mila got her mom's gorgeous green eyes!
Congratulations Kelli and Patrick on a wonderful baby girl. You are a beautiful family and I can't wait to watch Mila grow!
