I donated a family session for my kids wonderful school last year at their annual auction. (Side note: This school is a community, full of people who love Jesus and full of people who love my kiddos. I am overwhelmed with gratitude almost every time I visit the school, due to the faculty, staff and other parents that have become close friends of mine.) The family that won the session was a blast to capture. We walked around the grandparents property and everywhere was a perfect spot for pictures! Thank you Wilson family for investing in a great school and being a part of what God is doing in our children!
This family is like family to us. We have been friends, neighbors and church family for at least 9 years now. We have been pregnant together, helped them move, they have helped us move three times and have been an amazing example of suffering well. They went through quite a journey to adopt the most beautiful baby boy, Isaiah. I’m linking their blog post here, and one from their adoption consultant here. Please go read them both. I can’t write their story as well as they can, so please go read it. Like now!
I did a little newborn session for them when he came home at 6 weeks of age.
This sweet little guy was a champ for his session! He took his time settling down but then slept great with a few ‘knockout juice’ breaks in-between poses. He is the third blessing to Andy and Shiela’s family. I was so excited to capture his first session and catch up with his joyful mama. Andy and Shiela make beautiful babies, proof of that is in their previous maternity session and newborn session! I love becoming friends with my clients, sharing in their joy of new life and capturing the sweet moments of the newborn stage.
This sweet little baby slept so well for her debut! She was all of 10 days old and so tiny! Be jealous of all the baby snuggles I snuck in between set changes.
Gosh I love this family…like really love them! Their last name is quite fitting for them because they are the Sweetest family! We reminisced about the first photo shoot I captured of Maya when she was 3! Now she is 10! They have added 3 more kiddos to their family; Myles, Miriam and Maybree! I had a blast and love the images and the love that was captured.
This little cutie was a stinker the first time she came for her newborn session, so I had her come back a few days later and what a difference! I’m always happy to do this if babies/kids are having a hard day. I get it, I don’t want to cooperate either when I’ve had a hard day. Enjoy all the baby sweetness!
This little guy is just so happy, as I was getting him to fall asleep he would give the biggest smiles! He was a dream to capture. Thanks Atticus for being so sleepy!
