It is SO NEAT to be sharing this session with you all.  This family is near and dear to me as my husband and I met Mom and Dad in birthing class when I was pregnant with my daughter.   Mom’s maternity session and newborn session with big bro were part of some of the first sessions I was doing as a budding “not-just-a-hobbyist” photographer.

And last week had the opportunity to meet the newest member of the family.  Little Miss was a chill little thing… if she wasn’t resting peacefully or eating, she was checking out the world with these sweet, inquisitive eyes.  And based on the happy little smirk in this first picture, I think she enjoyed her debut in front of the camera…

Oh hello yet another gorgeous Momma!


… and a super smitten Dad…


… and a super fun, adorable, happy big brother who was having a lot of fun with my camera. (Literally. Tried to take it away from me and was using this toothy grin to reel me in!)


Oh you guys….. Congratulations on all of the ways your life continues to move forward in the best ways… a growing boy, a new home and now a precious baby girl to add to the mix.  It has been my HONOR to have met you guys and be asked to photograph these times for you. Thank you for everything. 🙂
