Sunday morning I went over and spent some time photographing (& cuddling) Natalie in her first ‘official’ photo shoot. Sarah said she had been prepping her all night telling her what to expect. Whatever Sarah said to her worked because this little gal did so good! She is a pretty chill baby in general so it wasn’t that much of a surprise that she happily slept during the whole session.
One thing little baby girls have over boys are accessories. How much fun it was to play dress up with Natalie! The pink hat I bought her during my trip to Ireland and the tan flower Sarah wore in her wedding. The white booties were made by a very close family friend of Sarah’s mom. Don’t you think she looks like an actual doll? As I was editing these photos Chris kept looking over my shoulder and saying, ‘She really is a pretty baby’. She looks just like a little china doll.
Sarah and Jon are natural parents. They barely even look tired (Jon a little more than Sarah, but not much more!). And oh, how they love her…
I hope you’ve enjoyed these photos as much as I enjoyed being able to take them. We’ll be back to our regular wedding talk this Thursday with an engagement session followed by a week of detail goodness from our styled shoot at The Journey Home.Read more
Guess who decided to come and meet us Monday night? Little Miss Natalie!!! Sarah went in for a doctor’s appointment Monday morning and ended up being admitted to the hospital. Natalie made her entrance at 11:50 pm Monday night.
Sarah spent most of the day walking the halls and telling people not to come to the hospital. I didn’t get a single thing done all that day because I was so anxious to hear what was going on. Around 5:30 people couldn’t stay away any longer and we started to gather in the waiting room.
As the night began to get later our group trickled down to just 4 of us (it really was a late night/early morning!) – Sarah’s mom, Jon’s parents, and me. We talked and talked until we could think of nothing left to say except, ‘when is she coming?!’. Finally we got word at 11:55 that Natalie had been born in the form of a sweet photo of Sarah and Natalie looking happy & healthy. Nearly as soon as we received the picture the waiting room got quiet as we were all texting friends and family the news and studying the picture to decide if her hair really was blonde (it is), how happy Sarah looked (very), and every thing else we could decipher from our lone clue to this new life.
We waited another 2 hours before being able to see Natalie but once we got back there I think we all got a second wind as we anxiously passed her around and examined her hands, feet, ears, and hair. Sarah and Jon were wide awake and doing well as they showed off their new pride and joy.
Welcome to parenthood Sarah and Jon! We are all SO happy for you. Natalie is such a sweet little baby already. We are so excited to watch her grow and see what personality develops. Little Miss YOU ARE SO LOVED! Auntie can’t wait to squeeze & love on you again!
Since Natalie decided to make her debut this week we won’t be back to the blog until next week. But expect more picture of this little gal soon!Read more
With just 6 weeks left before Sarah’s little Miss makes her big arrival we thought it was time to spend some time with Sarah in front of the camera. I think that these photos capture Sarah exactly how she is. I think that Sarah is going to make a terrific mother and I hope that she will be able to look back on these and remember the supernatural experience and feelings of pregnancy.
I am so blessed to be able to share my work with such an amazing friend, who will very soon be an amazing mom!Read more
The day was colder than we expected and the wind was gusty….so really not the exact type of weather we would have all hoped for. So at the last minute we decided to switch it up and do the session at the library. It ended up being the perfect setting for this family of 3. These faces may be familiar to all of you since we did their family photos last year too. It was so fun to see how much Ella had changed since last time we saw her! Last year she was just 10 months old…and not quite sure about getting her picture taken. This year we could barely keep up with her!
You’ve met this adorable family before, we were excited to come back and capture Wynn as he rounded out year one!! Isn’t he just the most handsome little gentleman? Bea did a great job styling the family for the session! Enjoy…
Happy Happy Birthday Wynn! Can’t wait to see all you will do in the next year! - Ginger & SarahRead more
