Ariana Phyllis

Baby Ariana, we are so glad you are here!  Ariana's mom and dad are in the small group Ted and I are blessed to be a part of at our church.  I remember the day Kaitlin and Nick shared with us they were expecting like it was yesterday.  Our group had gathered for a little evening pool party, and before everyone headed outside they shared they had a joy- a baby on the way! Since I get to see Kaitlin weekly, it was so fun to watch her bump grow throughout the months.  

When we found out we were also expecting I immediately thought about what a blessing it would be to raise our little ones alongside Kaitlin and Nick.  Kaitlin has been so open and honest about mommahood, and I have already texted her with some of my more personal questions.  When can I go back to work? Is this normal? Is Ariana taking a bottle yet?  I am sure by the time our little one arrives Kaitlin is going to be so sick of hearing from me! ;) 

I had such a sweet afternoon hanging out with Kaitlin, Nick and Ariana at their home.  In-home newborn sessions are just the best, as they capture what life looks like at your house right now.  I love being able to use your space to tell your story.  Kaitlin and Nick already seem like parenting pros, and little miss Ariana spent the majority of her session fast asleep.  Ariana, we are so thankful for your life.  We can't wait for you to meet your new baby buddy in July! 

Henrik Edward

How sweet is baby Henrik?! This guy was so small.  He was born just under 6 pounds, and although I regularly hold newborns, this little guy just seemed like the smallest!  He was so good for his session, and decided he wanted to sleep the entire time we were together.   He really didn't make a sound, and loved being snuggled in his big, soft blanket. 

Henrik's dad is one of my best friend's brothers, and it has been so much fun to watch their family grow.  In the past year they have added three little babes to their family, and I have had the pleasure of photographing all of them! Babies bring so much joy into life, and these three have brought so much joy to their family.  I have loved getting to watch, and photograph, this exciting year for all of them.

The sweetest part of Henrik's shoot had to be watching his older puppy brother love and protect Henrik.  Henrik's mom and dad said their little pup has served as Henrik's watchdog sine he arrived home from the hospital.  They showed me pictures of the puppy standing close guard to his new baby during Henrik's first few days at home.  He was no different in our pictures! The pup wanted to be up close in all of the family pictures.  I can't stop smiling at the pictures where the puppy is covering Henrik in kisses and Henrik is laughing at it.  I think these two are going to be close friends!  Welcome to the world, little guy!
