So, this happened!
I’m sure you remember when this beauty was still a baby bump? Yeah, well, she’s been here for a little while and now I’m able to share her newborn pictures with you. Like many of the special babies born this year, this darling one also holds a special place in my heart. Being able to go from engagement to wedding, rock the dress to BABY, well, that’s pretty big for me as a photographer, and this year has been slap full of these special photographic (and heart) moments.
This has been the Year of the Baby, so when it was time for this one, I was on pins and needles, waiting, praying, and so excited. I got to meet her one week later.
(I sort of had to stand on tiptoe to get this mirror shot. I have no idea how Baby Girl is supposed to be able to look at herself and then pull the mirror off the wall and break it. But maybe that’s the point…)
By the way, in case you don’t know this about me, I’m the Baby Whisperer. Babies from all over smile when I ask them to so that I can take their picture. It’s true. Ask anyone! (Don’t, however, ask if they ever cry around me, because then those parents are just lying. Like, seriously.)
I knew as soon as I saw pictures of the nursery that I would somehow get a photo with this tree. I am in love!
As babies are often wont to do, this dear one see-sawed between sleep and being alert, and we loved — and photographed — her all the same.
Oh, hello gorgeous mama! Like mother, like daughter. Autumn is, as you may have learned already, one of my favorite people. She is gentle and kind and compassionate, and even if she weren’t so beautiful on the outside, she would still be beautiful on the outside. Because that is how wonderful she is. And watching her as a mother, well, my heart just grew three sizes bigger.
Jake is pretty too. (I wouldn’t want him to feel left out.) But honestly? The baby just brings his whole look together, amiright?
I just don’t tire of looking at these baby faces, and this tiny one just steals my heart.
Lest you think Jake has gotten too serious since becoming a dad… (Can’t you almost hear her saying, “Daaaaaad!”?)
And lastly, well, she IS her father’s child.

There will be more of this little one in the coming months. And her gorgeous best friend. (Oh yes, she already has a best friend!)
