Taylor Grace, we are so happy you’re here! We’ve been waiting and anticipating your arrival for months. You are the sweetest, tiniest little thing, and are blessed to have been born into a wonderful family! We are so very, very happy that you’re here!!!
Sometimes there are perks to being a Raleigh newborn photographer, and spending an afternoon snuggling sweet little ones like Taylor are just such a perk. She was a little angel for her newborn portraits. She slept and dreamed and snuggled with her mommy and daddy. All in the cutest nursery you’ve ever seen. It was a perfect session.
You might remember this family from their maternity portraits. They’re two of my sister and her husband’s closest friends, so basically they’re family. In fact, I’m pretty sure Carter & Jenna have arranged a marriage for Cason and Taylor when they grow up. I’ve heard talks of dowries and such! As an over protective aunt, I’m not so sure I like hearing talks about marriage, but if he has to grow up and marry some, I’d be ok with Taylor joining the family.
Jenna and Justin, thank you so much for letting me (and my handy dandy assistant/Taylor’s future mother-in-law) come photograph your new family. We are all so very happy for you, and proudly welcome you into the parenting club. I remember those first few weeks and thinking there’s no way I can ever love this child more than I do right now. I’m here to tell you it grows every single day. That feeling you felt when she was born will only get stronger with time. Soak up every second of it and document everything, because before you know it she’s going to be two, going to preschool and potty trained!
