I have taken the past (almost) three weeks to soak up my own sweet little newborn. Our second son, and third child, Beau, was born on May 5th, 2017. A little Cinco de Mayo baby, who’s first birthday fiesta I’m already planning (but of course not rushing). We are adjusting to life with three kiddos, and I’ve never been more thankful for a generous paternity leave, and of course, grandparents. I had my third c-section and it’s been a much tougher recovery compared to my first two. I’m almost back on my feet now, but really taking my time trying to fully heal, really relying on the extra hands around the house. Here are a few (ok, a lot) of snapshots from our first days as a family of five.

These first two images are from my last day of being pregnant (likely ever), and I’m so happy I have these two images to remember the baby belly in full force. The rest of the images are from our first two weeks when I’ve remembered to run (actually, walk really slowly) and pick up my camera. I hope you enjoy the little glimpse into our family!

This year I offered a handful of mommy & me sessions. It’s the first time I’ve done it, and I am just in LOVE. I can’t believe that I haven’t done it before. Getting in front of the camera with your babies is something that we all have to do. Of course family pictures are necessary, but sometimes as mama’s we get left out. To have a whole session focused on a mom and her babies (no matter the age!) is priceless. I’ll be sharing a few more highlights, but here is one of my favorite sessions, with one of my favorite mamas. Ashely is also a photographer, so she konw

I loved every second of sweet baby Grae’s in-home Atlanta newborn session. The details of her nursery (the print above her bed was taken by her parents on their honeymoon!), her adorable fur-sibling, and her incredibly nice parents. We had a fun, relaxed afternoon. It goes without saying that their home with beautiful natural light made a perfect back drop, but what made the session was the connection they all had. I love when families cuddle up without my directing them to. It makes for a tender, natural, lifestyle session. All of the things that make me so happy to be a photographer. Enjoy these images from baby Grae’s first session.

Sweet little Porter is quickly approaching 4 months old, so I thought it was high time that I share his newborn session. I came across it while I was pulling images to update my website couldn’t believe that I’ve never shared before. Their home was full of gorgeous natural light, and I loved the neutral backdrop of their nursery. It all made for the perfect in-home lifestyle newborn session. At the end, we took advantage of the beautiful Atlanta fall weather and snuck outside and grabbed a few images on film. Enjoy Porter and his beautiful family!

Nope, I didn’t open up a gorgeous Atlanta newborn studio. This was just the beautiful home of this sweet client. I had such an amazing time photographing their baby boy, and getting to know their family. I can’t wait until the next time I see them!
