There is nothing cuter than doggies and babies and this in-home newborn session has both! Baby Oliver is the sweetest little boy. He is such a good baby for his parents, sleeping soundly most of the time. He's a tiny little thing, tipping the scales at just over 7 lbs. Maybe that just seems tiny to me right now as my baby is currently waddling around in 24mo clothing! Oliver Gray made his debut just a few weeks before Christmas, making the most special gift for the whole family!
So much love for this sweet baby girl! Lace is such a pretty little baby with bright, blue eyes, long blonde lashes and the fairest skin. She has a beautiful, floral nursery with hand made accents created by her mama. It's easy to see that Lindsey and Rob are already so in love with their beautiful baby girl! Baby Lace is a growing girl...she was eating every hour during the day and every 2-3 hours at night. Ahh, I remember those days! Even with little to no sleep, mom and dad are so happy!!
Current obsession...baby nurseries. I love them all. You can just feel all of the love and thought that went into planning for this sweet new soul that will one day inhabit the room. This navy and blue themed nursery had the most adorable DIY touches such as mason jar book ends and framed sheets of music because Dad is a musician. So cute!! Don't let him fool you...This normally very sleepy boy did not want to go to sleep! Ben was showing off those big, beautiful eyes the entire time. Poor baby was so tired at the end of his photo session, he didn't know what to do with himself. I bet he zonked out in his Rock n Play the minute I left! Peggy and Matt are just glowing with joy over their new baby. He is such a happy boy, as long as he can chew on his tiny, little hands!!!
I love a good nickname and they call the baby Lil' John. Automatically, the background music and chorus of the song "Yeah" start playing in my head. Usher singing "Lil John.. Yeah-ah!" Hahahaha, I love it! This precious little one is very sweet and so far, Mama says he has been a laid back kind of guy. He probably figures that right now, it's easier to just close his eyes than try to keep up with his big sister. Oh, they will be trouble together once he's mobile! Baby John is adorable with his brown locks and long brown lashes. These little boys get all the good lashes! Big sis, Ella, came along for the photo session and was excited to play and not so excited to pose. The outtakes are hilarious! Poor baby has puffs in his hand, on his head, basically everywhere to try to get Miss Ella to come near him! Let the fun begin with 2 under 2!!
Sweet baby Gracie is just 8 days in these photos, all 5 lbs of her! She's such a tiny little girl!! Big brother, Declan, was not sure what was going on. He was very serious. We were joking that he was giving us Blue Steel. Whatever he was thinking, he was looking cute. Gracie girl was super adorable as we basically wrapped her up like a present. Such a little peanut!! I just love watching this family grow! I can't even believe Mike and Lizzii have 2 children now. I feel like it was yesterday that Mary and I were taking photos at their wedding! Now, they are parents of a beautiful baby girl and handsome little guy and I couldn't be happier for them! I am so thankful to be able to capture these milestones in their lives! Take it all in, that sweet baby smell, every coo, snuggle, hand being held...it all goes by too quickly!! (Says the mom who's last baby is now a toddler...where are all the sad emojis when I need them???)
Baby Reid has arrived to join his big brother and sister! They were beyond excited to welcome their newest sibling. Let the craziness of zone coverage begin! This tiniest addition is the sweetest little boy with beautiful blue eyes and chubby little cheeks. So far, Reid is happiest swaddled up and sleeping while Luke and Addison play around him. Win for mom and dad! Congratulations to the Boyle's! You have such a lovely family!!
This little peanut is tipping the scales at just over 5 lbs. Leo Vincent came in to this world with a full head of blonde hair and the fairest little eyelashes. He had a rough night before his session...cluster feeding anyone? It's the worst!!! He must have been exhausted, because this sweet blondie did not even eat before or during his session. He slept right through everything! I love the way Leo would sleep. He would always fold up his tiny legs, right into himself, like he was still in the womb. It didn't matter if he was swaddled or not. Those little hands, were always up near his ears and he would get those feet crossed and right up to his face! He is so adorable! Congratulations Audrey and Nick, your precious baby boy is an absolute dream!
We have waited so long to meet Baby Schaus and to find out if it would be a boy or a girl. He's finally here!! This little love surprised everyone with the most amazing head of dark hair! When he was born, he had a natural side part, and after a bath, those locks are a little bit fluffier and a little bit lighter! Ben is the sweetest, sleepiest baby boy and makes the most adorable faces in his sleep. So far, he is pretty content sleeping in the car, stroller, and at parties. He's a keeper! He already has long, beautiful lashes that just keep getting darker and I love those tiny little baby cheeks. I'm pretty sure Ben is going to be a big boy... Check out the size of those paws! We are so excited for Melanie and Andy! Welcome to the world sweet Ben! He is so perfect in every way!!
I'm currently loving newborn lifestyle photography and this is definitely one of my favorite sessions. Baby Hadley is a doll and was just 8 days in these photographs. She's usually the sleepiest little baby but she decided to wake up for us at the end of her photo session and show off her beautiful blue eyes! I love her downy blond hair and her fair little lashes! Sometimes, Hadley will pucker her lips and make a kissy face when someone gives her a smooch so Hunter tried and tried to make her do the kissy face for him. He tried in his nice clothes, stripped down to his undies, and then dressed up as Captain America, planting kisses on his new sister each time. It was really cute! By the end of our time together, the superhero in training was telling us, "I just love my baby sister." Haha! It took him a few minutes to warm up, but he got there!! Every superhero needs a sidekick!!
This family has had quite a few milestones since the last time I saw them! New baby Landon was just born!! He was just 7 days out for these photos. He is eating and sleeping like a little champ. Gavin is ready to celebrate his 3rd birthday and is thrilled to be a big brother. He is happy to hug, kiss and even feed the baby! Such a good helper!! It was fun to see these guys again and be able to get some family photos, capture Gavin as a 3 year old and baby Landon as a sweet newborn!!
