Yay for new additions! I met this wonderful family 5 years ago when their first daughter, Emily was born. Recently they welcomed Elise, a most adorable little girl to their family. Emily was quite the proud big sister, happy to hold Elise and help pick out hats and headbands for his little sister’s portrait session. Meanwhile, Elise just snoozed her way through the photos with the occasional peek to see what all the fuss was about. What a blessing these two girls are to this family. Congratulations!
Baylor celebrated his first birthday this past weekend and has enjoyed the limelight of being the youngest in this trio of handsome brothers. And he has a few more months to soak it up until the trio becomes a quartet. Baby boy #4 will join these guys later this year, but for now it is all about Baylor. He is a laid back little chunk that is quick to smile and loves his brothers, as well as some good cake. He was all business when it came time to dig into his cake and was not pleased when we started to clean up following the portraits. Brothers Brayden and Beckett tagged along for some of their own portraits and once again am so glad I’ve had the opportunity to watch these boys grow since they were days old. Such a blessed family, and I’m looking forward to meeting its next adorable baby boy.
What is sweeter than one little newborn? Two of course. Meet the adorable Emry and her brother Eli. They both arrived in good health and weighing in at the same 5 pound 14 ounces. Since then, Emry has made the most of her meals and out paced her brother just a bit in their weight gain. They are well loved by their big brother Noah, but I’m sure he’ll enjoy his quite time when he heads back to school soon. Welcome little ones!
Another day, another 1st birthday! This time it is for sweet, sweet Claire. She’s come along way in this past year since I first met her when she was days old for her newborn session. Not only has she grown a lot, she and her family have also moved from Knoxville to the greater Nashville area (following their favorite photographer…that is the story I’m sticking with). She was full of grins for her newborn session, and it appears her happy go-lucky spirit is still intact. She was full of grins and herself during her 1 year portraits. She loved her little lemonade stand and happily waved at all the people passing by in the park. Big sister Carson also came along for some belated 4-year-old portraits. It has been such a pleasure taking her portraits these past four years and I’m looking forward to watching both of these girls grow up…but hopefully not too fast.
Another cutie turns 1! Silas celebrated his birthday the day after his portrait session. He showed up with his beautiful family in tow and we had a great time exploring the grounds of Iriswoods while shooting his one year portraits. Of course we had to get a few of his beautiful big sister Emma in there as well as a few family portraits. Silas had a great toothy grin that he loved to flash and some long lashes that I’m sure the ladies coo over. Happy Birthday Silas!
