I’m so excited to share this session and album from my Valentine’s day date with this little newborn. Kelli contacted me when she was expecting, but due to some complications with her pregnancy, we had to wait until this sweet boy arrived. But, oh, was it worth the wait! His first-time parents are so over-the-moon for him, it was really special to capture these memories for them. Kelli loves children so much and owns a wonderful daycare, Planting Seeds Daycare & Learning Center. She did such a great job decorating his nursery, using lots of personal touches. Her mom has been making lots of blankets for him to snuggle with as he grows. And I could see what a proud dad Sam was when holding his son. (I had met Sam previously through his company, CrossFire Fencing. He and his crew did an excellent job with some work around our ranch.) We captured some wonderful moments of this brand new family of three, as well as all the tiny details of this wee one. Everyone’s story is different, and I am so humbled when chosen to capture yours.

Here is Baby J’s Your Story Album.

Leave this little guy some love! If his post receives 20 or more comments, his family will receive a special gift from me.

Seriously?! Can you believe how cute this little guy is?! I though he was a sweetie when he was a newborn, but oh my he’s even more adorable now! Love being able to watch little ones grow and change and capture each stage of development. It’s also fun to see how similar or different they may be from a sibling. It was fun and a little crazy with these two in the studio!

Leave these little guys some love. If this post receives 20 or more comments, this family will receive a special gift from me.

For those who’ve had a baby, think back to those first few days home with a newborn. Whether it was your first child or you were adding to your family, remember how you felt. Maybe you were unsure of what you were doing or a little overwhelmed. Most definitely you were sleep deprived. But an even greater feeling was the incredible joy you felt as you held that baby in your arms. All your hopes and dreams, and all the happiness that surrounded that new little life you created. As you looked at all his little features, you soaked in the tiny nose and baby toes. You wanted to hang on to that time with all your might because you knew how fast he would change and grow. You remembered sitting in the rocking chair feeding him at 3 a.m. and even though you were exhausted, there was no place else you’d rather be.

While we can’t actually have that time back, we can create Your Story Album that will take you back to that time, to those memories, to the first days that began your baby’s story.

It was such a fun day spending time with Eleanor and her two sweet boys to capture these special memories of her family. From big brother Evan helping “capture” his own photos of baby brother to watching Eleanor’s sweet and patient manner with both her sons, I couldn’t help but enjoy my time with them.

Here’s to many more happy memories as you watch your baby grow!
