Families & Little Ones

Baby John Ira, Newborn Session

This sweet baby boy arrived just in time for the holidays, and got lots of snuggles and cuddles as the Christmas lights glowed. Though his whole family was excited to meet him, his big sister Poppy was especially excited to show him off at his newborn session. She introduced me to John Ira and was so sweet with him for the pictures! Baby brother did well for his session, too, and though he liked cuddling with his mom and dad mostly, he let me get some sweet pictures of him by himself as he slept. :) He just has the most perfect little face and I loved his pouty lip in one or two of the photos! I’m so excited to see how much he has changed since this session soon— can’t believe it is almost time for the next milestone!

Welcome to the world little guy!

Baby Baker, Newborn Session

Oh my goodness, this family needs to be on the cover of a magazine! How gorgeous are they?! It was so hard to narrow the pictures down to just a few for this blog post— I could have chosen another ten to include for you all to see. :)

Heaven must have known these two little girls needed a baby brother, because that is what they were given. Hadley and Leighton were just smitten with their sweet new sibling, and all they wanted to do was love on him and kiss him. We struggled to get a few pictures of the girls looking at the camera, because they didn’t want to take their eyes off baby Baker. I can’t say that I blame them! :) He was finally home after a little stay in the hospital, and their family was all together and loving it. Nothing to do but cuddle close, smile sweetly, and let brother sleep.

Welcome to the world baby Baker!

Baby Merritt, Newborn Session

Little Merritt’s mom and dad had a big year last year— from extensive home renovations and out-of-state work trips, to preparing for their sweet baby boy to be born. Merritt made his arrival just in time for Christmas. I think he heard there were pretty lights to see and festive songs to hear and he wanted to experience all of it. :) And though I am sure he had plenty of gifts under the tree, of course his parents’ favorite was him!
When his belly was fully and after lots of back pats, Merritt drifted off to sleep and we were able to get some sweet, sweet pictures of him all cozy and dreamy. You can tell his parents just adore him, and I think he feels the same about them, too. :) I’m so excited to see him again soon and see how much he has grown since this session! I am anxious to see if his hair is going to be red like his dad’s, or if it has turned out more like his momma’s. (No spoilers, if you know this family! haha)

Welcome to the world, baby Merritt!
