Another bloom baby, Isaiah was the newborn with a cactus theme! I’ve adored getting to know this sweet family. Mama had some special request for the session, the little teddy bear Isaiah is holding is actually a duplicate of his mama’s teddy bear when she was little. Also, the photos in the wash tub on a chair are just like the photos of her grandfather as a baby, she thought it would be special for Isaiah to have similar photos at the same age! I love when parents have special request like this that incorporate family heirlooms. Can’t wait to capture his 1 one year session!

Maternity Session

How beautiful is this family of 3 who are growing by 1?! My good friend and fellow photographer Kenna sent this family my way for maternity photos as she was busy having a baby herself!! Kenna was booked to capture their new baby, but I was so honored to capture these special photos for them. I think it is so important to have photos with your first born before baby comes, not only does this show off mama to be’s glowing, beauty but also captures that special bond with your first baby. As all of us mama’s know, things change with a second child, not in a bad way, but it changes the family dynamic…so capturing last photos of big brother/sister before baby comes is so significant to me!

Baby Wells

Baby Wells (10 days old at time of session) was such a dream to photograph, he was so sleepy and squishy and let me pose him in almost every pose!! It also helped that he brought along his gorgeous family!!!! Mama gave me complete creative freedom which was pretty incredible. Papa is a police officer for EKU so they brought along some of his gear for Wells to be photographed with and I just love how it turned out. His big sis was also pretty happy about gaining a new bestie. Hope you enjoy these as much as we do!!
