So excited to meet this baby girl who was born only a week or so after my little guy! Lila was such a great model, and I could not have loved meeting this little family any more! They were so laid back and awesome, and we immediately bonded over our shared love of vintage kitchen sets and Pinterest project ideas!
Big brother Owen was such a joy and so proud to show off his sister...and his trains! :) You know. The truly important things in the life of a three year old! You could tell right away though that he is going to be an amazing big brother! Lila also has a four legged family member looking out for and loving her, so she is already one lucky little girl! I could not BELIEVE how great this family's dog, Avery, was with the baby! My pooch is STILL learning not to jump on our baby's head, and Avery had it down already! Such a good girl! Reminded me of Nana from Peter Pan with how loving she was! :)
The love that Lila is surrounded with is palpable, and I could not be more thrilled to share it with you! :)
Introducing sweet Lila and her loving family!
We start with big brother, Owen, who was so proud to show me his trains. There truly is nothing more infectious than the excitement of a child! This photo is also one of the reasons I love (and favor...have to be honest!) lifestyle newborn sessions, as it allows me the chance to give the family a shot of the new baby's older sibling just as they are - right where they are - doing what they love. Someday this family and Owen will look back at this photo, and there will be an immediate rush of what those times were like....how much he loved his trains...and how much life has changed since then. Photos let us freeze time, and sometimes we don't think about those little things that our children love that are begging to be remembered.
Had to put this in here, because this sign in Owen's room was ADORABLE. Owen knew exactly what it said.
Oh...and another reason I love lifestyle sessions...THIS. EXACTLY THIS MOMENT! This was just happening in the background as Mom was getting Lila changed. This is what happiness looks like.
Lila's turn!! :) Such a sweet baby girl!
Her face was already so expressive!
Nothing beats mama's love!
Sweet belly button and baby rolls!!!
You already know that I heart tootsies big time. These were no exception!! :) Avery girl! :) So amazing with the baby!
One happy family! Avery was even posing for me!
Love this...mom and her girl! If you looked up love...this is what it would look like! :)
Lila already deep in love with her daddy! Love this. Most precious gift. Had to get a great shot of Lila under this amazing piece of art painted by a member of their family. I mean...how incredible is that? TWO works of art together in one shot! :)
Sweet girl! :)
I know...I can't help myself! Tootsies!
Nothing like a sleeping baby! :)
May be my favorite image from this session...so safe in mama's arms!
Lila is already a deep thinker! :) Love this!
As always, thank you so much for letting me capture these amazing memories for you! xo Can't wait to see this little girl grow up!
