Y’all – this post gets me emotional. Like to the point of being teary-eyed. Again. Like I was during the shoot AND editing the photos. I got to fly out to Midland a while back to meet & photograph my best friend’s baby, and let me tell you – my heart was straight up bursting as I walked off that airplane in Midland.
Adrian & Jason, it was SO great to see y’all & such a blessing to get to snuggle your sweet baby girl. Thank you for being some of the best people in my life & for creating such a perfectly beautiful little girl.
Isn’t she just perfect?!?! Those sweet little hands & that tongue just barely peeking out are too much!
It was a crazy thing for me when I became a mom, but I think it’s been even crazier to see my friends become mamas. I guess maybe it just more clear to see or something, but it makes me realize how far we’ve come since college, and how much we’re still the same all at the same time.
LOVE this one! Adrian, you’ve done such a beautiful job with Emma’s room!
When I walked in to her room & saw that photo from Adrian & Jason’s maternity session hanging over Emma’s crib? No words.
I can’t even handle the cuteness!!!!
Jason, you’re such a good daddy already! I’m glad Adrian gets to be a parent with you!!
Looks like Emma’s already got her parents’ sense of humor!
Be still my heart!
Now here come more waterworks from me…. these butterflies have such a beautiful & sad meaning. So many of these shots I honestly was just hoping they’d be in focus because I couldn’t tell from all the tears in my eyes! Seeing Emma so calm & content surrounded by the butterflies isn’t something I’ll soon forget.
Most parents are pretty proud to show off their kid’s new tricks, and Adrian was definitely excited to let me see the way Emma goes for 100% committed full-body stretches – cutest thing ever.
Getting a few shots with the first two (fur) babies was quite the scene, but I just about died when they both came up to give their baby sister kisses at the same time!!
Holding her grandmother’s ring – cue more tears!!
Sweet happy girl!!
Adrian & Jason, congrats on your beautiful baby girl. Congrats for surviving the first few months of parenthood. Thanks for letting me photograph so many important stages in your life, but especially thank you for flying me out to Midland to photograph y’all as a family of 3 for the first time. I am forever & always thankful for your friendship & the way you support this dream of mine. Love y’all the mostest!
