Poppy • Raleigh Lifestyle Newborn Photos

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again. Watching my friends become parents is one of the most heart warming things ever. I’ve know Poppy’s mom for practically as long as I can remember. I can’t remember exactly, but I know we met shortly after Kyle and I started dating, so it’s been at least 15 years! Her family was a huge part of our lives growing up, and her sister was even one of my bridesmaids! To say we love this family is an understatement.

When I found out Stacie was expecting my heart leaped! And it was no surprise to anyone when she announced she was having a little girl. She comes from a family of all girls, her sister has had three little girls (that I’ve had the privilege of photographing their lifestyle newborn photos too), and now she’s added one more sweet little blessing from above to the already estrogen filled mix. She and Nick are such good parents to this sweet little girl. They were definitely meant to continue on the family legacy!

Poppy is just perfect. Her sweet little face, that little head of hair. I could eat her up!!! And her nursery fits her perfectly!!! Stacie and her sister Steph have a talent for interior design. So much so in fact, that Steph just launched her own business: Stephanie Tidwell Interiors! With their talents combined, I knew this nursery was going to be uber modern, stylish and chic. I love how Stacie played of Poppy’s name and incorporated bold floral prints in the bedding. And I’m so in love with her bronzed crib!!!!! Swoon! Then they showed me their all white master bedroom, and I was in love all over again!

Stacie & Nick, thank you for trusting me to capture this precious time for your precious little girl. I love your little family so much and can’t wait to see how Poppy grows!!! Welcome to the wonderful world of parenting my friends!

Be sure to check back in a week or two, because Stacie & her lifelong best friend had baby girls only 2 weeks apart, and you can bet I’ll be sharing those photos here too!
