I love having the privilege of being invited into people’s homes for photographs, especially when they are celebrating the welcoming of a new baby! This family is welcoming Leo. He is the newest member of their family and was 15 days fresh when we took these photos. His big sister Avery, a HUGE Star Wars fan, was very happy about showing him off! She loves to snuggle him and I’m sure is very much looking forward to having lightsaber battles with him as soon as he can hold one!
My favorite thing about newborn lifestyle sessions is that I get to see your life in real time. Sure, we do some posed pictures and I try to keep everyone together, but I also get to capture real life as it happens. So many of these images have been captured with only a little bit of direction. Avery reading a book on the couch — totally her idea! Their sweet little kitty came out to greet me (and I’m told she is REALLY shy). I guess Avery is the only one that can get as closer to her as she does and can give kisses. Bam! Captured that! I know they will cherish these for a lifetime!
Since Leo is adopted and they got the call last minute about his arrival, his nursery is still in the works of being completed. However, I love the simple touches they have on it already and I’m glad we were able to use it for some of the photos.
Thank you again for the opportunity to photograph your gorgeous growing family!
Elyse’s momma and I spent several years working together as nurses before Jamie started having babies. Actually, we have known each other for quite a few years. We go back to the “Yellow Mustang Days” as Jamie and I would call them…..
Now, it’s pampers and mini vans and we wouldn’t change it for the world.
So, let’s talk about Elyse. Isn’t she just gorgeous?! And her big brother is CLEARLY in love with her! How sweet is he?!
Elyse is one special baby. She is what they call a Rainbow Baby. It is a term used to describe a baby that is born following a miscarriage, stillbirth, neonatal death or infant loss.
“In the real world, a beautiful and bright rainbow follows a storm and gives hope. The rainbow is more appreciated having just experienced the storm in comparison.
The storm (pregnancy loss) has already happened and nothing can change that experience. Storm-clouds might still be overhead as the family continue to cope with the loss, but something colorful and bright has emerged from the darkness and misery.”
Not only has Jamie’s family lost a baby, but they have weathered multiple other tragedies that left them feeling helpless and lost.
Through it all, their faith never wavered and God prevailed as He always promises to.
They, indeed, have braved quite some storms in their time as a family, but God gave them their long awaited rainbow.
So happy for you all!
