Our last shoot from 2011 was with a beautiful little newborn, Emily. I always love hanging out with brand new parents, this is Lisa and Chris’ newest addition to the family and their very first child and they were already parenting pros. Each set of new parents has their own tips and tricks that I can keep in my back pocket for later on and I hope my little ones love their daddy much like this little angel did.
Basking in the glow of a newborn is always a wonderful feeling, especially right after Christmas. Emily’s due date was actually Christmas day and I was to have a meeting with the mom to be a few days before hand, when I got a phone call from the dad-to-be that night saying they’re at the hospital and the meeting was unfortunately a no-go. Funny enough, that morning I woke up wondering if that exact thing would happen. So, instead of planning a session, they welcomed a healthy 7lb, 12 oz baby girl into their family, and just one day before the end of 2011 I got to meet her and now you can too…
What a gorgeous little family and a stunning Christmas present. Congrats Lisa and Chris, we wish you all the best with your adorable new little one in 2012 and beyond!
The best part of being a photographer is getting to help out your family in capturing some special moments. Asher Phoenix is our brand new nephew (with an awesome name I must say!) We got to meet him on day one and celebrate with the proud new mommy, daddy, and big brother!
One week later we were back to see the little darling again, he is so precious I wanted to take him home but I don’t think Bee or the family would have been okay with that, the other nieces and nephews won’t be able to compete with Greg and Crystal’s beautiful boys, they are just amazingly cute! We got to hear all about being a big bro from Dexter and see the grace and ease that the new parents of TWO boys handled everything.
Such a beautiful family, we can’t wait to watch the new little one grow, congrats.
Oh baby Lydia, I wanted to just take you home in my camera bag. She was the smallest baby I’d ever held and so adorable.
We did Laura and Dan’s maternity session just in time, almost 2 weeks later they had beautiful baby Lydia come right along and we finally got to meet her mid-September! I love going into homes where you can just feel all the love the parents are emitting to their child and the excitement they have being new parents! It never seems important how much sleep they’ve lost, or how often their new baby sleeps (or doesn’t sleep) or when she needs a diaper change and all those fun new parenting things you get to figure out. Laura and Dan were just so happy about being new parents and you could definitely tell!
Baby Lydia came a lot earlier then expected and is incredibly tiny but they were just so happy to have her home, happy, and healthy and it was beautiful to see all the love they had for this sweet baby girl.
There is nothing we love more then LOVE, so I think these pictures speak for themselves, there was a whole lot of love for Lydia, take a look!
Can you spot Lydia…
So adorable, thanks Laura, Dan, and Lydia for a great afternoon. Congrats on your gorgeous little one!
