What a difference a few months makes!!

I had the pleasure of re-visiting one of my precious newborn clients recently and was floored when I was met by a crawling little man. You are not supposed to be crawling yet, sweet boy! Look out, mom and dad, this one is going to be a mover and shaker for sure!

And to highlight how behind I am on my blogging, I haven’t posted his sweet newborn session yet or his beautiful mammas maternity photos. I just love looking back at all these and seeing the loving anticipation as they looked forward to becoming a family of three and the love, joy and awe that each parent feels during those first days after their baby’s debut. O’s, your love for each other and your sweet baby boy is palatable and certainly becomes you. Thank you for trusting me to capture these special milestones for you — what an honor.

And doesn’t this mamma have the greatest sense of color and style?!? If I ever redecorate, I want her help! 🙂

And then they were four . . .

What a beautiful thing it is when a family welcomes their newest member. Those first few days and weeks are just so precious. Time seems to stands still as acquaintances are made, newness is marveled and snuggles are savored. And while the first time around is unique and special in its own right, the second time around is even sweeter. For you realize, I think, how fleeting that newness is. How quickly those tiny toes grow, that sweet milky baby breath fades and that complete and utter dependence changes. I am truly honored to be asked to capture those first days for new families, each and every time. Thank you Gs for trusting me to capture your family as it grew to a family of four. Your new little man is just perfect in every single way.

new life

What an honor it is to be trusted to capture those first few days after a family welcomes new life. Anyone who has had a baby of their own knows how quickly those days pass and just how precious they are. The endless snuggles, complete dependence and ceaseless wonder of how tiny and perfect they are. Thank you, B Family, for trusting me to help you document your growing family. I hope these images will help keep these days *alive* for you for years to come.

tough shoes to fill

There may be some tough shoes for this newest little B to fill, but his big brothers can *hardly* wait to show him the ropes. He is just 10 days old, and what sweet, tender love they have for him already!

a mother’s love

A mother’s love is special. I’ve always known this…everyone does. But it wasn’t until I became a mother myself and held my first child in my arms for the first time that I truly understood what that meant. I began to love in a way that I never had before. I loved that tiny little person so completely, so differently. And I think becoming a mother helped me to love others in my life better too. I loved my husband in a deeper way now that we were officially a family, and I gained an appreciation for all that my own parents had done for me and why.

A mother’s love is special. I love it that we documented that for this beautiful mamma and her two little ones, and it makes me realize how badly I need a photo session of my own!

Mirror, mirror on the wall . . .

Who’s the fairest newborn of all?

Well…I’m not sure I could ever make that determination, but I know that Miss. P would certainly be in the running! Just look at those perfect little features.

Irish triplets?

I’m not even sure if there is such a term, but if there is, this sweet family would certainly be close to qualifying! They welcomed their set of boy/girl twins just slightly over a year after their second child was born. Yes, you did the math right, three babies under the age of 13 months…whew! But they didn’t focus on all the diapers, bottles, routines. They were so excited to be a family of six, and I was touched by their incredible story and strong faith. Their joy was real, and they were authentically thankful.

Being with this family on this day was such a great reminder to me. A reminder to not let the mundane details of daily life get in the way of being truly grateful for my blessings. Thank you, D family, for not only inviting me into your home but for sharing your story and hearts with me!

So excited

When I showed up today to photograph this family’s newest addition, the middle P girl ran out on the front porch before I hardly had my car door open and yelled “Miss. Lauren, Miss. Lauren, the baby is *out* of my mommy’s tummy!” She was so very excited and wanted to be the first to let me know. Miss. G, I’m super excited too and am so happy that your baby is so loved.

Family Life

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to go from a family of three to a family of six in just a little over a year?!? Well, ask the Ds, and I bet they would tell you that it’s very busy, a bit hectic at times, but totally wonderful and very much worth it! Ds, I was so touched by your story and how God has blessed your family so richly in such a short time. Thank you for inviting me into your home to capture you just as you are right now. I love these pictures of your family life and hope they will keep these precious moments alive for you in the years to come!

And don’t worry Mom, the shots of just the babies we worked so hard for turned out great!

Family Snuggles

Nothing better than a little Sunday afternoon snuggle time with your newest little one. So glad we captured these sweet moments for you, M family. And this is just the beginning — can’t wait to show them all to you!
