Newborn Portraits – Addie

Y’all I’m so excited to get to introduce you to the absolutely adorable Addie! I got to go photograph her at 11 days old, and let me tell you – Amanda and Steve seemed like pros at the whole parenting thing!

I just love the way they both look at sweet Addie, and she was just a little dream baby. Seeing Amanda holding her daughter with such grace and joy was a beautiful thing to see, and y’all know I’m a sucker for seeing a daddy holding his baby girl. Gets me every time!

Newborn Portraits – Joseph

Y’all, I cannot begin to tell you how excited I am to share this session today. It’s been killing me to not post these sooner, but it is so worth the wait!

I love getting to photograph sweet new babies and their families, but when that sweet new baby is the one who made me an aunt, it just about makes my heart burst! And CJ & Emily are just the sweetest parents. So clearly I’m just a tad bit biased, but I have to say these three & their in-home session are just incredible!

Joseph was just a little dream baby for the whole session! Sleepy & sweet.

Seriously too cute.

This one on the left got me in the feels when I took it, again when I edited it, and for a third time as I’m writing this!

One of the gifts Emily received at a baby shower was this beautiful necklace with Joseph’s name, and I love that she chose to wear it for pictures.

CJ’s been an awesome uncle for a long time now, but it’s been so fun to watch him become a dad. Joseph, you’re a pretty lucky little guy to have the parents you have!!

Of course we had to get Rocko in on the family portraits too!!

Another one that just makes my heart happy!!! Such a beautiful mama and a happy little man.

Love this one with photos from their past adventures on the wall, and their biggest and best adventure in their arms.

We got a few shots with my grandfather’s ring too, and we all got a little teary-eyed. The last photo I have with my bump before Peanut was born was with that ring on my hospital gown covered tummy, and seeing it on the newest member of our family’s tummy just felt right.

There’s nothing like the tiny little details on a newborn – especially their pouty little lips!

Joseph, thanks for making me an aunt, and thanks for being such a little dream baby during your portraits! CJ & Emily, thank you for letting me be the one to take the photos of your son’s first days, and your first days as a family. I love you all!!!

Newborn Portraits – Benjamin

Last week I got to snuggle little Benjamin for the first of three shoots – have I mentioned before how I LOVE Little Ones Packages? Because I do! They are a great value for the parents, and it’s so much fun for me to know I get to see this sweet family a few more times within the coming year.

I met with two-week-old Benjamin and his family at their home for the first shoot in their Little Ones package series, and I just love this little guy already!

This little man was just too sweet for words, and I LOVE all that hair!! So cute.

Benjamin just didn’t want to miss out on a thing and didn’t want to sleep much. He is one of the most alert little ones I’ve seen! Those big steel-blue eyes weren’t missing a thing!

I seriously just love all those tiny little baby details… and I know that with my own girls, I don’t want to forget a thing – the swirl of super soft baby hair, the curve of a perfect little ear, the creases in the littlest of feet.

Like I mentioned, Benjamin has two older brothers, and these two couldn’t get any cuter! Henry & Charlie are both just precious and have the most adorable grins…

There’s just something so incredibly sweet about seeing little boys love on their brother… I can only imagine what fun (and maybe a little trouble) these three will make together!

I was honored to get to help continue a family tradition of the newest Morris boy getting his portrait taken with the same glove his brothers were photographed with when they were brand new. This is just part of the power of photographs, and I love that I get to make that family tradition live on.

Benjamin & family – I can’t wait to see you again soon for our next shoot!!
