Astella Quinn | Modern Wisconsin Newborn Photography

May 16, 2011

Astella Quinn is the newborn daughter of two like minds and souls who met in architecture school. Mom’s now an interior designer and dad’s an architect so Astella might just grow up with some serious design sense. But for now she’s hard at work relaxing and eliciting a serious quantity of oohs and aahs from her mom, dad, and Aunt Melissa, who was on hand for our shoot one lazy afternoon last week. Fur siblings Lena and Riley spent a little time in front of the camera, as well, with Riley rivaling sweet Norm for best baby dog ever.


I love love love this last photo of Astella. In some improbable way she looks powerful. I didn’t expect to see strength when I was going for soft and sweet. Somehow Astella Quinn is already managing both.

    How adorable!! She’s too cute. The shot in her dad’s arm is perfection. Add to that a sweet puppy, her in a sea of blankets in a sunny chair, on top of a pile of books, and a too-cool-for-school shot with her arms behind her widdle head!! What a great set, Heather. 🙂

    She is simply the most precious awesome vision of beauty! Tim, you will have so many more wonderful daddy moments as she grows (way too fast) up and steals your heart day after day. The joys far out weigh the hardships of being a parents and I wish you & Michelle more happiness with your daughter that your hearts can hold.
    God is very good to us!

    What a beautiful baby! All that hair. Does it have a red tint or is it as black as it looks. Your mom is so happy.

    Michelle, the pics turned out so great. She was so peaceful in all of them. She really is such a peanut. Im so happy for you and Tim and I hope that over the years our girls will grow up close. Im in for the long car rides to pick up the girls if that means they get to sleep over after Christmas or a birthday party lol. Im up for it all, so that they can have those life long memories with each other and have a strong relationship that will last past us. Love you guys! And is there a way to get a pic printed out. I love the one of you, Tim and Astella with Tim holding her and her legs hanging down and the dog one. Let me know

      I hope the same for all our girls. I want the three of them to be as close as Glenn, Doug and Tim all were growing up.
