I’d like to introduce you to Drew! This little guy was a total rockstar for his portrait session and really took the expression “milk Coma” to a whole new level. After having a snack to start things off, he conked out and stayed that way through out the session. Every once in a while his little blue eyes would pop open and check on things, and then he would be out again. He was more than happy to snuggle with his big brother Chase for several images as well. Welcome to the world Drew!
Baby Levi will be here before you know it, and his mom and dad couldn’t be any more excited. I had the opportunity to do their maternity session recently and we were blessed with a gorgeous summer afternoon despite predicted storms, which hit earlier in the day in another part of town. It is always so wonderful to work with expectant parents and see the amount of joy as they talk about their soon-to-arrive baby and dream about their future. Mom is a huge Disney fan and is already planning Levi’s first trip to Walt Disney World. I think Levi is going to be in great hands with parents like this!
It was so good to catch up with this sweet family recently, and meet their newest addition, six-month-old Nora. She was full of smile and sweet cuddles all morning. And she is all about her big sister, Emily, who was a big help in getting Nora to look and smile throughout the session. And considering how adorable Emily is, we had to get some updated portraits of her too!
All babies are miracles, but sometimes these little miracles are a little extra special. Miss Stella is one of those special miracles. Pregnancy doesn’t come easy for all women, and that has been the case for Stella’s mom. In addition, Stella has an older brother, Lincoln, who went straight to the arms of the Lord. So when Stella’s first heartbeat was heard through ultrasound, prayers were said daily by so many people that this pregnancy would be smooth, and would welcome into the world a new precious life. Prayers were answered, and Stella is here. She is adorable, and perfect in every way. Her other big brother, Rocco is absolutely in love with her, and has slept in a sleeping bag beside her bassinet since she’s come home. It’s safe to say, he is going to be a good big brother. Welcome home Stella.
The next best thing to having a sibling, is having a cousin, and Maddie can’t be more excited about her new cousin, Charlie. Maddie has been the center of attention since she arrived 4 years ago, but she has been happy to share the spotlight with Charlie since he arrived a few weeks ago. She is also more than happy to share her love for him. Charlie was super relaxed for his portrait session and was quite the little squirt as most little boys are. Following his session we took a little time to get some new portraits of Maddie since she just doesn’t stop grow up. I’ll never get over those gorgeous eyes of hers, nor those cheeks that surround that sweet smile of hers.
