Molly’s Newborn Photoshoot

Molly is 4 weeks old today! Not quite her one month birthday (that’s on August 6th), but I wanted to share some of the photos from our newborn photo shoot that we did when Molly was only 6 days old. I can’t believe how fast the past 4 weeks have gone by. The nights seem long, but now that she’s 4 weeks it seems to have gone by in the blink of an eye! I knew it would all go by fast, so I am trying to savor every moment with her.

Before I get into the photos I have to give a HUGE thank you to Kinda from Kinda Arzon Photography for taking these beautiful photos. Kinda was such a pleasure to work with and came to our house with so many adorable props! Also, this girl is a baby whisperer I swear! Ha! She knew exactly what to do to soothe Molly to get the perfect picture. Kevin and I will cherish these photos for the rest of our lives. Thank you Kinda!!! You can check out her website HERE. And follow her on Instagram HERE. Who doesn’t love to see cute photos of babies? 😉

I’m starting with this photo because since The Bachelorette is over, Molly thinks it’s her turn to hand out the roses. So far she’s only given out one – to her daddy 😉 And her daddy wants it to stay that way for a long time! Ha!

My beautiful little family!


Those eyes though…

Such a cute little peanut

Such concern! She’s going to care so much about others, I know it!

My soul…

Mommy and daughter. A bond like no other.

I don’t know what I would do without this man. He is the best daddy in the world!

Me reacting to a super cute face she made right before this photo was taken

The Mannos…

And no, we aren’t married yet but we ARE a family and I’ve already started using the name Manno (Like when I signed Owen up for a new daycare the other day). I can’t wait to marry this man and make it official!


I have even more photos that I’ll share soon! Just wanted to show off my little angel with some photos now 🙂

We love you Molly Sullivan Manno! Thank you for making me a mommy. We promise to love you, care for you, snuggle and kiss you – hopefully without smoothing you so you can thrive on your own and become your own person. Ok ,I want to write more but I’m already in tears.

And thank you to all of YOU for sharing in our joy!

xoxo Ali

  6. Oh my goodness, she really is a beautiful baby, and you are such a beautiful family! Love how she curled up in that first photo, just too adorable!

  7. I love this dress. I was going to get it for my baby’s baptism. Is it see through? That’s my only reservation…

  8. So cute!! Kinda is truly talented. She did both my sons newborn pics, a few holiday shoots and my eldest one year pics!

  9. Reading this brought tears of joy to my eyes……knowing that you are so blessed and have so much love in your life is all a mom ever wants to see for her child……Love you all more than you will ever know…..

  10. She is such the doll. Oh I love it! And I wish I had the courage like you did to attend the baseball game! When my 2nd was 4 weeks (now 3 months!) my husband and I were invited to a suite for an Indians game and we turned down. Now I wish I could go back and go!
