AceShowbiz - Chanel Iman has shared some sweet snaps of her baby daughter from her first family photoshoot.
The model married American football wide receiver Sterling Shepard in March, with the couple welcoming a daughter named Cali Clay Shepard in August.
Since giving birth to Cali, Chanel has updated her fans on social media with regular photos of the baby, but on Thursday, November 01, she uploaded a series of images to Instagram which were taken by Australian photographer Anne Geddes.
"Proud to be your mommy Cali," wrote the 27-year-old alongside one photo showing her in a black slip dress while cradling her daughter in her arms. "Us on top of the world."
Chanel also posted a photo depicting Sterling, 24, holding Cali, a shot of the baby sleeping on a brown velvet blanket and a very cute photo of the trio together.
In addition, the fashion star uploaded a picture of her sitting in a white shirt and breastfeeding her baby.
"Motherhood is the best reward. I will forever give you my all Cali," she captioned the intimate photograph.
Sterling shared the snaps on his Instagram page, as did famed children's photographer Anne, who noted that it was nice to be able to post some pictures from the shoot as she keeps most of her family portraits private.
"I do many private portraits (which I keep private) so I'm thrilled to share these. I love making memories to last. Spread the love everyone," the snapper wrote, before going on to praise the new parents. "A gorgeous new little family starting out together ... with a beautiful and very much-loved baby girl ... a fun and meaningful shoot at @blondeandconyc (Blonde + Co Creative Agency) ... the perfect recipe as far as I'm concerned. Thanks for sharing @chaneliman and @sterl_shep3 ... you guys are already wonderful parents - oh and sending more kisses for Cali from Aunty Anne (as if she hasn't had enough)."
