This family is from my Maternity & Family Greenhouse session (and one of my all time favorite families). I am finally getting around to blogging about their newborn - but I’ll have to share this newborn’s 6 month pictures (and soon to come one year pictures). To say I’m a little behind is an understatement. Anyway, I have talked about this family keeps me laughing and it was no surprise that their lifestyle newborn session would be any different. Their first baby, Big Red, was photographed in my in-home studio and was so chunky and perfect. This go around, since I don’t have an in home studio anymore, I came to their house.. only to find out that they were getting ready to move to Texas. :( So, in a way, this was their last hoorah in this house and a memory that they can always hold on to. I love that this family just sat back and let me capture their version of real life. <3 Love y’all, Edge fam! See you soon for that one year session! Ha!

Ahoy Carter! How cute is his nautical nursery?! This sweet boy spent his first two weeks on Earth in the NICU for a rare condition affecting his digestive tract.  After a few surgeries, lots of pin pricks, and tons of love, he is now at home and expected to thrive as normal.  His NICU necklace is just a reminder of all the battles he had to endure at such a young age.  This little fighter is already loved by his big sister who is ready to read him some books and play with his toys.   I was a bit jealous that she even has a pretend Starbucks coffee cup she was pretending to drink during our session. Ha!  The joys of lifestyle newborn session is capturing those surprise moments when siblings want to be a part of the action.  I always encourage parents to just let the session run as a normal day-in-the-life would... and sometimes they are some of my favorite images! Enjoy!
