I have loved keeping up with sweet Anna and her family by taking their pictures. She is absolutely adorable and has the most loving parents. I was super excited to do a cake smash lifestyle session in their home for her 1st birthday. There is something about doing lifestyle shoots in the home that TRULY captures the essence of the family and their life during that time. I think it’s important to have photos inside your home because that is where “life” really happens. Check out this lifestyle session, it’s super sweet (literally)!
Pam is a dear friend and fellow photographer and I felt honored (as always) to be asked to document her birth story. Of course I get a text that she is being induced while Tennessee is in the middle of a “State of Emergency” ice storm. Oh, and I also was on crutches with a broken right foot and sprained left arm. But. I. Had. To. Be. There. I refused to miss baby Julian’s arrival! My dear, sweet hubby drove us to the hospital and actually waited in the waiting room with our toddler while I photographed the birth. Like all birth stories, the pictures tell the story itself, but I always like to include a few little things in the blog. Poor Pam had a sinus infection but still looked amazing (and honestly didn’t even look pregnant). She had her chapstick and essential oils ready to go while her husband Ryan applied them on her ankles (even the not-so-great smelling ones which could help speed up labor). My absolute favorite moment of the whole day was when, after one push, Pam exclaimed: “Can we get some music up in here or something?” We all were laughing and about 2 minutes later precious Julian was born. Pamela and Ryan have two girls and this is their first boy. I know I said this before, but I always feel SO SO SO honored to photograph birth stories. I cry every time and I am surprised my camera hasn’t suffered water damage yet from all the tears of awe and joy. Welcome precious baby Julian!
I’m so excited that Sybil is here! It seems like we waited forever for her arrival (at least it seemed like that for me). Her older brother, Bishop, is one of Micah’s buddies from the YMCA and I was super eager to see what Bishop thought of his little sister. And can I just say that Sybil’s Mom looks absolutely amazing for just having a baby? Wow. Their sweet family of four is absolutely precious. Welcome beautiful Sybil!
Loved being a part of this fresh 48 session. I was so excited to photograph sweet Conner meeting baby Ethan for the first time. You could feel the excitement build up from the moment they walked through those sliding glass doors. Conner was super eager to get on the elevator to go see his Mama and his new baby. He had wrapped a gift for Ethan and had the most joyous expression when he met his baby brother for the first time. He was so gentle and careful with his new baby. It is obvious he will be the perfect big brother for Ethan. Welcome baby Ethan!
I just love this family. I know, I know, I say that about nearly all the families I photograph. But it’s true! I also loved everything about this lifestyle session. Everything from the boy’s styled room to the adorable wall decor. I mean, how cute is the blue dresser and cute little fox on the shelf? Ah! I just can’t get enough. I love lifestyle sessions and capturing the everyday parts of my clients’ lives. Welcome home Charlie!
