i was so glad that little ephram was born just days before my trip.

that meant i was able to take pics of him in the hospital and at his home.

but we had to do a real newborn portrait session for him too,

even though he was just three days old

(not normally when i photograph newborns… just a day or two too early!).

he wasn’t too sure if he wanted to cooperate with us,

but eventually he decided to sleep.

at 10 pounds, 10.6 ounces, he was definitely my biggest baby yet!

since i had to fly, i was able to bring limited props.

luckily, his creative mommy brought lots of things that were special and significant to their family,

which makes each of these pictures extra precious.

sweet ephram… you are loved.

oh, this baby.

his mommy and i have been friends for a long time, so i couldn’t wait to see his sweet little face.

but he made us wait… an extra 11 days!

my plane tickets were already booked, so i was worried he wasn’t going to come in time.

but he did. and he is perfect….

all 10 POUNDS and 10.6 OUNCES of him!

i got to meet him while he was still in the hospital, so of course we had to capture some of his first moments.

and then his first afternoon at home.

precious memories.

 ephram bennett- you are an awesome “little” guy.

here is the new family still in the hospital….

i’ve had the sweet opportunity to spend some time with the blanchette family lately,

first for their maternity session,

and then for little jack’s newborn session.

they are an incredible family that inspires and encourages me.

ingrid asked me to come over and take some pictures of them at home- just living life with their new little guy.

the lighting wasn’t always ideal, and the poses weren’t perfect..but  this was just them. at home. together.

which makes it totally perfect.  cherished moments captured.

i love the added sweetness that jack is wearing the onesie and the whole family is hanging out on the bedspread from mommy’s maternity session.

love. love. love.

one of this guy’s middle names is wolf, so you know he is awesome.

then add in two big brothers, a fire-fighting daddy, and a loving mommy…

this little guy is destined for greatness.

 this is an awesome family.
we are lucky to have them in our life group.
they are the type of people that would give you the shirt off your back if you needed it.
generous, thoughtful, servant-hearted.
we like them.
baby miles is due to arrive in just a few short weeks.
i have been spending a lot of time in fields lately (which i love),
so it was fun to try out something new.
we had a blast exploring the beautiful location,
taking pictures long after the sun had set.
oeschlagers- thanks for all you do for others.
miles is a lucky little guy!

well sweet baby jack arrived,
and he is absolutely perfect.
