Brecken :: Newborn

I am very tardy in posting this session!  This past December, I had the pleasure of meeting little Mr. Brecken for the first time and had the honor of capturing his newborn moments.  I met up with his parents and older brother this past fall for Lacey's maternity session and was so excited to finally meet this little miracle!  His brother, Kaiden is (I think) 8 years older than he is and Lacey's doctors told her she would never have any more children.  They were all very surprised to find out Brecken was on his way and couldn't be more thrilled!  Brecken had a few medical issues (Lacey told me the specific medical terms, but I'm not good at remembering those things) and Lacey was under a close watch during her pregnancy.  Thankfully, Brecken was born with no complications and is healthy! 

Brecken wasn't entirely interested in sleeping for his session, so we spent a lot of time looking into his sweet little eyes and finally lulled him to sleep wrapped up in a receiving blanket.  Kaiden is so proud of his little brother and I know he will be an excellent big brother!  It was a joy to visit with this family again and capture this newest part of their wonderful lifesong.  Thank you, Lacey, Kevin, Kaiden and Brecken for letting me part of this exciting time!  Enjoy!

(Lacey and I share a love for scrunchy crying baby faces- they are impossible to resist!)

I Heart Faces Challenge :: Hearts

This is my favorite photo of my daughter at the moment.  Even if you cannot completely read her little "I Love You" sign, you can see the love in her eyes!  She loves all things frilly and pink, so her outfit captures her personality perfectly.  This bench is one of my go-to props because it keeps busy little feet sitting in one place.  I love the hearts peeking from behind Emilia- Love is all around!  I have this photo up at work because it always makes me smile.  (O:
